For those that love dressing up and participating in the Spring Racing Carnival spirit but are less excited about getting to and from Flemington Racecourse, The Langham, Melbourne has the perfect suggestion for Melbourne Cup Day. 

On Tuesday 7 November, Melba Restaurant will provide 225 race-loving diners with an opportunity to dress up in stylish racewear, enjoy a decadent lunch and watch the race that stops the nation.

Hosted by The Langham, Melbourne’s ambassador, Gorgi Coghlan and live entertainment by Fem Belling, a jazz vocalist best known for her appearance on The Voice, the event is destined to be a highlight of the spring racing calendar for families, couples and groups of friends.

Over-sized plasma screens will broadcast the action as it unfolds at Flemington Racecourse while guests will dine from Melba Restaurant’s expansive and world-class grazing buffet and inter-active kitchens.

Gorgi will be scouting the room for the best dressed guest and best hat. She will be joined by one of Melbourne’s leading stylists, Natalie Crighton, and will assist in awarding sought-after prizes including a Chadstone shopping experience for two worth $1200.00.

Fem Belling will entertain guests in between the races with some of her favourite acoustic jazz songs.
