Giddy-up for Bali’s Best Lawn Party!
Melbourne Cup Day is Australia’s most famous Tuesday. At 3PM AEST, on the first Tuesday in November, Australians everywhere stop for one of the world’s most famous thoroughbred horse races — the Melbourne Cup. This 3,200-metre handicapped turf race is also one of the richest and most challenging and is so important that since 1877 this “race that stops a nation” has been a public holiday for Melbourne. In Bali, your best place to celebrate the beloved Melbourne Cup Day is at the revamped Canggu Club, the island’s premier entertainment and sporting venue, set on a sprawling four-hectare estate in Canggu.
Bali’s biggest and finest Melbourne Cup Lawn Party returns once more, this year, on Tuesday 3rd November 2015, with the Canggu Club’s manicured grounds transformed into a gala affair set to rival any track-side action.
Whether you are racing enthusiasts, seeking a cracking good time, or Spring Carnival fashionistas — Melbourne Cup Day is also recognised as an urban fashion parade — Canggu Club provides a sensational day out whatever your preference. Indulge in the Nicolas Feuillatte Marquee, a swanky sit-down affair delivering delicious canapés, a three-course lunch on the lawns and three hours of free-flow Nicolas Feuillatte Champagne, Heineken beer, Babich wines and soft drinks. For those who prefer to mix ‘n’ mingle throughout the day, the Cocktail Party presents the chance to sip chilled Chandon bubbles, Babich wines, or icy-cold Bintang beers, and nibble on gourmet canapés. While taking in all the fashion action and runway parades, patrons get the chance to win fantastic prizes for being the day’s best-dressed. Gates open at 10AM and the Nicolas Feuillatte Marquee and Cocktail Party free-flow packages commence from 11AM. Multiple screens throughout the venue mean no one will a miss a single moment of race day action, while exciting post-race entertainment, supplied by Australian rock legend Jon Stevens from Noiseworks (supported by Marina Sidik and New Energy), guarantees fun throughout the afternoon and evening until 8PM. Additionally, Bali’s best Melbourne Cup Lawn Party is all done for a good cause, with Nicolas Feuillatte and Canggu Club proudly supporting Sole Men, an Indonesian non-profit foundation helping Bali’s disadvantaged. So, giddy-up and book your spot now. Tickets (from IDR 900,000, including early bird specials) are on sale at Canggu Club’s reception or on their website. www.cangguclub.com.
