Brisbane’s Melbourne Cup Venue 2015

Brisbane’s Melbourne Cup Venue 2015

Please note bookings for this event are now closed. Sign up for our mailing list to be first to hear about other upcoming events and deals.


It’s the race that stops the nation, so why stay cooped up in the office crowded around an old radio when you could be spending Australia’s favourite race day the right way, with a drink in your hand? Just to help you make up your mind, our team have come up with the top four reasons why Brisbane’s best Melbourne Cup venue is The Pineapple hotel.


The Food:

Ditch the boring sandwich platter and get yourself a proper spread at Brisbane’s best Melbourne Cup destination. For just $99pp you and your colleagues can enjoy three hours of food and beverages with our decadent three course menu. Select from classics like our “Old School” tiger prawn cocktail, oysters served three ways or tender Bangalow Farm pork belly with caramelised apples.


Then indulge yourself with crispy skinned Atlantic salmon served with a zesty citrus salad or our take on a retro chicken supreme with premium corn-fed chicken, charred asparagus and crispy pancetta. Or are you in the mood for something a bit heartier? Choose from either a 250gm Rangers Valley eye fillet or a 300gm Southern Gippsland grass-fed rib fillet, served with double-cream mash and crispy beer battered onion rings. Then top it all off with a great selection of chocolates and petit fours to share (if you have any room left that is).


The Fashion:

It just wouldn’t be race day without the glitz and glamour of Fashions on the Field, and since you can’t make it Flemington, we’ll bring a little piece of Flemington to you. Dust off your fascinator and get dolled up in your race day finest to win yourself some goodies, we’ll be handing out awards for the best dressed punters all day.


Full Live coverage:

Usually spending Melbourne Cup in Brisbane means crowding around that old crackly office radio, straining to catch the results over the sound of Greg from IT shouting “come on number 8!” (even though he’s backed number 7). Take the stress out the equation and catch all the action live as it unfolds in high definition on our jumbo screen. Our round-the-clock broadcast is the next best thing to actually being there.


TAB on site:

Forget the boring old office-pool, take part in our sweeps and you could win yourself a stack of cash (or at least enough to shout a round for those poor sods who backed a donkey). Or have you got a hot tip under your cap? No need to rush to the bookies, we’ve got our very TAB on-site open from 12pm so you can turn that fancy into a flutter. It’s just another great reason why the Pineapple Hotel is Brisbane’s best Melbourne Cup destination.


So whether it’s a girl’s day out, an office outing or the perfect excuse to take that long lunch you’ve always wanted, don’t take a gamble on anywhere else, we have everything you need to make your Melbourne Cup in Brisbane a sure bet.
