Champagne, Sundays and Celebrations!

GC Word on the Street #54

With Race Day coming up on Tuesday, this week is all about celebrating victories and drinking away losses. From long luncheons to pumping parties, the Gold Coast is warming up this week, so we figured, why stop on Tuesday? From Champagne on Saturday to Sunset Sessions on Sunday, there's a party going on that's sure to help you celebrate all week long!

Champagne Saturdays | Garden Kitchen & Bar

Everyone loves a Saturday night out, so why not kick off the Race Day celebrations early with Champagne Saturdays at Garden Kitchen & Bar! Starting at just $55 per person, you and all of your friends can treat yourselves to an incredible two-course lunch, kicking off at midday with plenty of Champagne to go around! If you're feeling like something a bit more decadent you can also upgrade to the Veuve Clicquot or Dom Perignon, or even a third course - Or better yet, just go all out!

Sunset Sundays | Wildernis Cafe and Bar

Be in denial about Monday's and keep the celebrations going at Wildernis Cafe and Bar! Right on the Gold Coast Highway in Palm Beach, Wildernis likes to celebrate the end of the weekend in style with their Sunset Sunday Sessions, kicking off from 4pm every weekend! With live music from incredible artists and drink specials running right throughout the evening, as well as plenty of delicious food and good vibes to go around, you'll be kicking off your week the right way on this incredible rooftop bar. Oh, and did we mention how good the views are? It's beachfront, so you'll be able to finish the weekend with a gorgeous sunset too!

Melbourne Cup

It's the day that stops the nation, and for many of us, it's the perfect excuse to dress up, head out and party in the middle of the week. We may not be able to watch the races live, but kicking off at midday, restaurants, bars and cafes right around the coast will be throwing some of the best parties the coast has to offer, with enough classy luncheons and pumping parties to leave anyone's head spinning! No matter where you are, there's a party going on - And we recommend you get in on it! Besides, who wants to turn down an excuse to drink in the middle of the week?

I'm a creative at heart - I love reading, I love writing and I love my social media! I spend the majority of my time sipping coffee and finding the next best cafe, but when I get a second off chances are I'll be brunching at my local or running off to whatever event is on that night! During Summer you can find me sipping coffee and tanning down by Burleigh Beach, and in Winter I'll be skiing the slopes of Perisher or buried under a mountain of blankets with chocolate and a good book.
