Hacienda Bar is Sydney’s newest bar inspired by furnishings of Cuba and the 1950s hotels of Miami with stunning harbour views, and will open from 5pm perfect for post event drinks. Rum cocktails are the ideal tropical treat, such as the Cubano Punch to start the celebration.

As we saddle up for our favourite week of the year, here are some style tips to make you feel ready for race day.  Cup day is all about colour and vibrant prints.

Men try this code: Dark on top, light on the bottom. Neat as-a-pin chino in light blue or grey, paired with a navy, black blazer or sports jacket. Pulled together with shirt and tie that features both the colours of your pants and blazer. Top it off with a trilby and pocket square to impress.

Women, the field is yours – if you are wearing floras choose a subtle colour from your dress for your accessories. Something like bright yellow or orange for contrast. On-trend colours are Marsala Red which is perfect for red lace dresses, White is a revolving door and always, think well-cut pencil dresses or skirts, Rose Quartz with moulded cups and ruffled trims, to the Mustard Yellow wrap back fit and flare dress.
