Big Day Brekkie

Looking to start the day right? A number of top hospo spots around the city are offering special Cup Day breakfast packages. Bookings are typically essential, so grab the gang, get organised and start your day right at:

Bloody Mary's
Bloody Mary’s famous Cup Day Champagne Breakfast offers a BBQ station, cocktail smoothies, chocolate fountain, canapés and even a donut wall (!), with every guest getting a free glass of Veuve Clicquot on arrival, lots of prizes up for grabs, and transfers to and from the course.

Fiddlesticks Restaurant & Bar
Fiddlesticks have a seriously filling breakfast offering on the day, with options including house-made toasted muesli, smoked salmon blini, crepes, and the mighty Fiddlesticks Breakfast. Go for the Akarua Brut or take it next-level with Pol Roger.

No. 4 Bar & Restaurant
No 4 takes Cup Week well-seriously; they’re promising bubbles will be flowing, and there are breakfast and bus packages to get you to the course, as well as champagne lunches for those who like to celebrate while steering clear of track!

Rogues of Rotherhams
Located just a 5 minute drive or 15 minute stroll down to the races, Rogues is a very handy spot for a champagne breakfast on the big Tuesday, with further promotions and specials on offer the rest of the week too.

The Pedal Pusher
Both Rolleston and Addington branches of The Pedal Pusher are offering gorgeous champagne breakfasts, which come with a glass of Piper Heidsieck (or opt for a beer if you’re so inclined).

Aikmans get stuck into Cup Week; your champagne breakfast comes with a flute of Moët and bus to the races, but they’ll also have live music from 9am – 12pm with Nick Lee and later in the afternoon/evening too, with Nicola Quinn Beauty & Day Spa also setting up a 'fix-me-up' stall from 4pm for make-up and nail services.

Baretta Bar & Restaurant

Trevinos Restaurant & Bar
The celebrated Cup Day breakfast at Trevinos includes a hearty full buffet and complimentary bubbles. Peacock your Cup Day outfit and be in to win their in-house best dressed competitions, and get the inside word from their tipster before a free ride to and from Addington.

Crowne Plaza christchurch
