Christmas at the Races

If you’re looking for a fantastic and easy to organise Christmas Party, with delicious food, stunning decor and entertainment, then look no further!

We all had an amazing time on November 24th and hope to be back next year!

Air New Zealand

Everyone had a fantastic night! Quite a few of our group had never been to the trots and all said that they would go again. The food was good, the atmosphere was great and your staff should be complimented on their politeness and efficiency – everyone from the doormen to the wait staff, bar staff and TAB tellers.

Ultra Interiors

We had a fabulous time. Our entire team thoroughly enjoyed themselves and some even went away a little richer with their winnings.

Cushman and Wakefield

We all had a fantastic night on Friday in the Tasman Room (our tables down by the windows were awesome, such a great view). The majority of us had not been to the trots before and we had a ball. Superb service, excellent food and drinks, and great entertainment – we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will probably return next year.

We would like to thank you and your staff for going out of your way and providing a wonderful meal on December 1st!

Top of the park

The name says it all, on the top floor of the Alexandra Park experience stunning views stretching as far as Mt Eden & the Skytower. Best of all, you will be treated to a three-tier layout with the third tier allowing an almost birds-eye view of the live harness racing action.
