A room with a view.

An odds-on raceday favourite, you’ll never miss a moment of the evening’s entertainment with floor-to-ceiling glass frontages bringing exceptional views of the action directly to your table.

A fantastic shared precinct for business or social groups, seats are limited and this lounge will sell out.

And if you’re looking for a little more detail, you can simply revert to your table’s flat-screen TV to watch the racing up close.

The menu for the evening has been especially designed by Executive Chef Paul Barrett who relies on the bounty of seasonal Kiwi produce, often incorporating produce grown sustainably onsite.


Package includes:

  • Drink on arrival
  • Bread and dips for the table
  • Delicious buffet lunch especially designed by ATR Executive Chef Paul Barrett and prepared using fresh, locally-sourced ingredients
  • Petit fours served to the table
  • Pre-allocated, reserved seat (tables of 8) in the comfort of an air-conditioned room with uninterrupted views of the racecourse
  • A flat-screen TV at your table screening the day’s racing
  • Racecourse & Silks admission, including a racebook
  • Cash bar featuring Champagne, selected standard & premium still & sparkling wines, local & imported beers, spirits & non-alcoholic beverages
  • Access to betting facilities within the precinct
  • Ability to enjoy the fresh air with access to covered & unreserved outdoor grandstand seating.


Please note:

  • Seating is in tables of 8.  If less than 8 tickets are purchased, you may be required to share your table with others
