If you’re looking for people-watching prospects & an excuse to let your hair down on Auckland’s million-dollar night, The Birdcage is the precinct for you.

Located within the modern surrounds of our Cuvée Bar which boasts an expansive indoor/outdoor flow, you won’t get much closer to the horses with the Birdcage right beside you and the winning post directly opposite.

We’ll start the party off with a drink on arrival, will throw in a racebook so you can ‘track talk’ like the pros and have delicious food available for purchase.

All that’s left for you to do is gather the troops & get set for a night like no other!

Home to the evening’s official on-site afterparty featuring the iconic ‘Ellerslie’ band to kick start the revelry followed by The Sweet Mix Kids, this area will sell out quickly and tickets will be allocated strictly in order of payment. We warn you, once it’s sold out, it really is sold out.

If you can gather nine friends, we’ve got a ‘Group of 10’ discount to take advantage of too.
