It's a Calile Cup Day...

Melbourne Cup at Lobby Bar

A very Calile Cup Day and an event first at loved locale Lobby Bar is our bet for an intimate affair on Tuesday 3 November. The event will mark the first Spring Carnival celebration for The Calile, plus the first for new acclaimed Head Chef Andy Gunn – and, who doesn’t like saying they were at the very first event?

Diners will be treated to a five-course menu created by Andy plus an all-inclusive drinks package featuring cocktail, wine, beer and spirits – the likes of the Calile Spritz (a Lobby Bar classic) will be included.

Tickets are $295 per person and reservations can be made by emailing
