Melbourne Cup 2023


The Clock's bringing race day to Surry Hills


Tuesday 7 November 


We're bringing a fabulous Melbourne Cup 2023 to Surry Hills at The Clock! Join us upstairs in our Balcony Bar from 11am for cocktail-style festivities with French inspired food and champagne flowing throughout our venue.


Tickets are $79 per person which includes a drink on arrival followed by roaming canapes throughout the day, mouthwatering grazing stations, and all the racing action live & loud.


Food service commences at 12pm, so to make the most of your package, kindly ensure you and your group arrive prior to this time.


If you wish to enjoy race day in our Street Bar, Courtyard or Pool Room, we'll be taking walk-ins only from 10am with a reduced food menu for your enjoyment. You won't be able to reserve a table, so first-in best dressed!


Scroll through for our full menu.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a standing, cocktail-style event. Tickets guarantee entry to our Balcony Bar, with tables and seating available on a first-in best-dressed basis. If you wish to enjoy race day in our Street Bar, Courtyard, or Pool Room, we'll be taking walk-ins only from 10am.


Cancellations made with less than 72h notice will forfeit the full ticket amount pre-paid. We prefer not to charge, so please contact our team prior to that if any changes.
