You don’t have to head all the way to Flemington to enjoy the colour and excitement of the Melbourne Cup — just as far as Carrum, where Café Moto and Brixton Bar Co are collaborating for a day of food, drink, fashion and fun on Tuesday, November 6. Brixton Bar Co will be serving luscious twists on classic cocktails in the Café Moto beer garden, which will be dressed to impress and flower-filled. You can relax in all your race day finery, with cocktail packages, hampers and vouchers for the winners of the Most Extravagantly Elegant, Most Distinguished Gentlemen and many more categories.
Café Moto’s delicious food will be available all day to keep your stamina up until the race that stops the nation streams live on the big screen, or you can book in for the tantalising special Melbourne Cup Day menu.
Café Moto is also organising hampers for those taking a picnic to the races; simply drop your hamper in and the staff will pack it full of goodies ready to collect on the day. With the café just across the road from Carrum station, it’s easy to grab your hamper and a quick cocktail then jump on the next train. And of course if you’re making a day of it at Café Moto, public transport is definitely the way to go. Sandwiched between Carrum foreshore and the station, there’s no shortage of parking near Moto and you can have a drink or two, enjoy a walk along the beach and forget the worry of driving afterwards.
So race on to Eventbrite to get your tickets. Giddy-up!
