Hold On To Your Hat, Melbourne Cup Is Coming!

Yes, it’s just around the corner and coming up fast in the final stretch. It’s the race that stops the nation and gives every office in the country the chance to stop as well, share a meal and some drinks, and watch it all unfold on a big screen. Plan a fantastic race day experience (with the added bonus of exceptional waterfront views) for your whole team here at King Street Wharf, but be quick – bookings fill up fast, so it could come down to a photo finish!

The Malaya

Make it a spicy, special afternoon at The Malaya. Dining is a la carte, but bookings for 10 or more will need to pre-order a set menu – that way, you can be sure you won’t miss out on that favourite dish you’ve been dreaming of. You can check out the set menus here, and if you want to make any changes to your selection or to the live seafood menu, as well as share the scoop on any allergies or dietary requirements, let The Malaya know when you book and they’ll take care of everything. If you have any beloved wines that you just have to have as part of the celebration you can preselect them as well, or enjoy a three-hour beverage package for groups of 18 people or more. And don’t forget dessert! If you have a hankering for something more after petit fours, you can order a dessert supplement for $10 per person.
