The Starting Gate
After a highly successful first year, The Starting Gate is back for the 2016 UBET Adelaide Cup!
The Starting Gate is a fresh and exciting social precinct featuring stylish bars, gourmet food and chilled tunes, all in a trackside location. It’s the place to be seen at the Adelaide Cup!
Mixing the style of a bygone era with racetrack chic and old English charm, The Starting Gate will feature multiple bar, food and event spaces and some of Adelaide’s best entertainment.
Whether you're keen to enjoy a cocktail in ‘Whoa Nellie’s’ Bar, soak up the sights from the Yellowglen Terrace, grab a bite to eat at ‘The Weigh-In’, relax in ‘The Mounting Yard’ or kick back and dance by ‘The Race Callers Rotunda’, The Starting Gate will offer something for every racegoer.
A new addition to The Starting Gate this year is the Clique Beauty Bar where you can have your hair and makeup professionally touched up with products from Evo Hair, Cloud Nine and Make Up For Ever.
