July 12, 2022

Who said winter means slowing down?! If there’s one thing worth braving the cold for, it’s a day of stellar racing, and what better place to cosy up than at the Winter Chalet (18+) with a winter cocktail in hand?

With its low-slung roof and twinkling fairy lights, the Winter Chalet is a stylish alpine-inspired retreat in Royal Randwick’s famous bar, The Stables. Located on level 4 of the Queen Elizabeth Grandstand, you can expect sweeping views over the racecourse for thrilling race viewing, live music setting the mood between races, an eclectic winter cocktail menu and memorable menus.

Plus, there will be Whisky Tasting conducted on the day showcasing some of Ned Whisky’s finest.

Here’s the Winter Chalet cocktail menu showcasing Australia’s own Ned Australian Whisky and Grainshaker Australian Vodka which is  guaranteed to warm you up.
