Opera Bar is renowned as being one of the best Melbourne Cup parties in Sydney and has sold out every year. It’s a party not to be missed!

This year we will be hosting stand up canapé events for groups of 20 or more. Tickets are $80 per person for a 10 piece canapé package.

Group reservations will be outside, taking in the magnificent views of the Harbour Bridge, city skyline and Opera House. There’ll be multiple large screens throughout the venue that will put you front and centre when the horses jump as well as sweeps, best dressed and lucky door prizes.

Live music starts from 2pm on the day ensuring a fun atmosphere throughout the afternoon and post-race into the evening.

We are open for walk-ins on the day for smaller groups to grab a spot and enjoy the great atmosphere. Our kitchen will be open from 10:30 am right through until midnight.

For group bookings simply email our team directly at for more information.
