Melbourne Cup

Thanks to all those who joined us at this year’s Melbourne Cup! See below for what we did in 2018.


Whether you like to celebrate with a cheeky bet, or you’re just in it for the bubbles and the excuse to purchase a new outfit, join in the fun at Watsons this Melbourne Cup. This year, we’ve included the drinks, because what’s a celebration without all the bubbles!

We’ll have live entertainment, two delicious menu options to choose from, Fashions by the Bay competitions, prizes & giveaways and a killer view of Sydney Harbour. We also have 8+ screens to catch all the action and on-site TAB facilities. So quit horsing around, dust off those hats and put your best hoof forward.


Tuesday, 6th November from 12pm.
