Coming this Summer! Guineas Room Grand Unveiling
Friday, 26 November 2020
This Summer, Brisbane Racing Club is thrilled to unveil the new-look Members’ Reserve at Eagle Farm Racecourse that is set to become the most sought-after destination for dining, socialising and pre-race viewing.
Following a $1 million refurbishment by leading architect Greg Harris, the Guineas Room restaurant and adjoining Oaks Bar are set to get hearts racing as it reinvigorates the raceday experience.
The expansive 300-seat space perfectly blends together modern finishes while complementing the rich racing history of Eagle Farm.
With elevated views of the Parade Ring, the new open-air balcony on the eastern wall will allow racing fans a direct view of the pre-race action under the canopy of the magnificent fig trees.
In the Guineas Room, a new seven-metre long bar, marble columns and bold light installations will provide a vibrant backdrop to the unique touches including vintage bookies bags and jockey statues, creating theatre at every turn.
Two huge screens will show all the racing action and there will be a number of screens around the room with the latest betting trends.
There is an exquisite array of beverages on offer. Mixologists will prepare vibrant drinks from the dedicated cocktail station or select a fine wine from the extensive list with varieties from Australia, France and Italy encased in the climate controlled cabinet.
In the Oaks Bar, connoisseurs of upmarket whiskey, bourbons and premium spirits can find their tipple, many of which cannot be found elsewhere on course.
À la carte dining will dazzle and delight as it showcases the best locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. Graze on dry-aged meats, fresh seafood and artisan cheeses before making your selection from the menu of Modern Australian dishes and perennial classics.
The light-filled lobby with 7 metre high ceilings is the central hub of the new venue and is a gateway to even more experiences, including the grandstand for live race viewing and bookmakers precinct.
Be one of the first to experience the new Guineas Room and Oaks Bar, that is in equal parts modern and bright as it is intimate and glamorous.
If you’re after the best raceday experience, this is where you’ll be.
