3 places to eat, drink and celebrate Melbourne Cup in Sydney this November 2020

Melbourne Cup

The world has suck this year. No other descriptions will do.

BUT thankfully, there’s a way to make it all right again. And that’s the Melbourne Cup.

Flemington will proceed with the race, but in a weird, eerie silence, the commission has confirmed – as no trackside punters will be permitted.

So, don your best and head down to the Star in Sydney for three offers in three quality venues to keep you going all afternoon.
