You started the day with your crew and you should finish it with them too. Don’t be forced to split up at the end of the day this Spring Racing Carnival, head somewhere that has room for everyone! The fun doesn’t have to stop once you leave the track, keep the party going we say. Chapel Street has loads of bars worthy of a post-race drink or two (or five). After all, the hours of prep that went into your get-up shouldn’t go to waste.

Check out the best places in the Chapel Precinct for a Spring Racing after party with all of your posse.
The Osborne Rooftop

A fresh new rooftop bar and restaurant has popped up in South Yarra, just in time for some more agreeable weather! Good views, good vibes, good bevs. What more can you ask for? The rooftop is what we’re most excited about. Impressive skyline views, casual seating and an expansive blue bar that’s begging your crew to join the party. A menu flaunting a modern Australian fare, forget fussy or fancy, this newbie is serving up all your pub faves with a touch of bloody delicious. A new rooftop drinking spot in the heart of South Yarra, what more could you ask for?

119 Commercial Rd, South Yarra

Imperial South Yarra

If your crew is looking particularly cute, you’ll wanna be in a high traffic locale. That’s where the Imperial comes in. Street side tables with excellent service, wine by the bottle and a never ending parade of people watching walking by. The perfect post-race spot for a group of gaggles.

522 Chapel St, South Yarra

White Oaks Saloon

Sometimes all you need is a little southern hospitality. In this case, it’s from the southern inspired bar and dining hotspot, White Oaks Saloon. Craft beers, wines, spirits shipped in from the States give you something more than what you’re used to. This place is a little more intimate, a race day group of four or five would suit perfectly.

115-117 Greville St, Prahran

THE-RAILWAY-HOTEL

The Railway Hotel is an award winning pub & an exquisite looking one at that. Boasting several dining experiences, the deck offers city views, ideal if you’re in need of some air, while downstairs you can enjoy a quiet beverage, rest those blistered feet and have a good ol’ chinwag. If you’ve slowly turned into a straight up tippler, make sure you smash a bowl of their chips (they’re life changing) to line the stomach.

29 Chapel St, Windsor

The-Smith-Prahran

High Street’s local favourite, The Smith, is the perfect spot for you and all your Spring Racing comrades, even the ones you picked up along the way. The vibes, which are all about fun and a bit of light-hearted mischief, make The Smith one of the best spots for a post-race tipple, leaving no man behind. Art covered walls and a retracting glass roof are a huge draw card. Plus the menu boasts fresh seasonal ingredients and a carefully selected wine and cocktail list makes this choice almost irresistible.

213-219 High St, Prahran

The Emerson South Yarra

The Emerson is the perfect place to keep things Race Day classy and settle into what’s sure to be a great night. Exactly the right place to dance away the night or nab yourself a footballer. Get your butt to the rooftop for sunset and watch the orange glow roll out over the city with a glass of vino in your hand. It’s a pretty sight, ain’t it? Go on, grab your race day besties and join the line of ridiculously good looking twenty somethings waiting to get in.

141-145 Commercial Rd, South Yarra

Speakeasy

The pretty pink frose’ from Speakeasy makes a beautiful spring evening even brighter. Always jovial, this South Yarra beaut has a beer garden that backs onto a street art filled alley… how VERY Melbourne! Get your Spring Racing crew here for glasses of pink sunshine and flirty banter. Inside & outside seating options are a-plenty, so don’t you go blaming the weather for ruining all of the fun!

359 Chapel St, South Yarra

Prahran Hotel Spring Racing

For those of you choosing to stay indoors this Spring Racing carnival, no judgments here, the weather really is a hit and miss. Prahran Hotel is the perfect place to play! This Cup Day they’re hosting the lunch of all lunches. Indulge in a banquet ($55 per person) with bubbles or beer on arrival or go all out with their cocktail package ($105 per person) that includes tasty canapes and of course, bevvies. This venue has 15 plasma screens, so for all you Sportsbet fans (tsk tsk) you won’t miss a beat.

82 High St, Prahran
