Enjoy cocktail jugs, drink specials and tasty bites at The Roof Garden Sunday Sessions
There’s nothing better than spending a chilled Sunday arvo enjoying a few drinks with your mates - especially if it involves a great rooftop to catch those summer rays.
Melbourne’s hottest new Sunday Session is happening at The Roof Garden on top of the $128m VRC Club Stand. Soak up the sun on the impressive deck complete with lush greenery, striped umbrellas and awesome views of Flemington Racecourse and the Melbourne city skyline.
While getting access to this ordinarily exclusive-to-members space is enough of a reason to have you passing through the Flemington gates on a non-raceday, the menu on offer is the cherry on top.
A happy hour will run from 12noon-2pm with $6 glasses of Seppelt sparkling, $6 schooners of Furphy Ale and $8 schooners of James Squire One Fifty Lashes Pale Ale and Kirin.
Refreshing cocktails always go down a treat on sunny afternoons, and we’re serving up a selection that will tantalise your tastebuds. Grab a jug to share with your crew from $38 each all afternoon/evening. These are just a few of our faves:
Dark n’ Stormy
This cocktail brings a taste of the Caribbean to Flemington. Featuring Havana 7 dark rum muddled with aromatic bitters, ginger beer and fresh lime juice. Garnished with a cinnamon stick and fresh lime.
Destined to become a Flemington favourite. House-made mint infused sugar syrup is combined with Beefeater pink gin, fresh lime juice and a splash of soda water. Muddled with fresh strawberries and lime.
A cocktail classic that’s fresh, zesty and incredibly refreshing. Our mojito follows the traditional recipe of fresh lime, mint and Bundaberg white rum sweetened with a dash of sugar.
No Sunday session is complete without delicious nibbles and our menu will not disappoint. The kitchen will be serving up wood-fired pizzas, buttermilk fried chicken, calamari and tempura zucchini flowers, plus many more tasty bites.
While The Club Stand is usually reserved for VRC members, we’re opening The Roof Garden for everyone to enjoy for three Sundays in February: 3rd, 10th and 17th February. Of course, there’s always privileges to being a VRC member - receive special beverage pricing and Racing Rewards points by scanning your current VRC membership card at the bar.
This is a relaxed way to experience the splendour of The Roof Garden and Flemington Racecourse. No bookings or tickets are required and you don’t need to be a VRC member, just come along with your mates and enjoy the chilled vibe. Find out more info here.
