Guests will be watered by the Nation Bar, fed by the latest food trucks, spruced by the team at Loxys and Beauty Dust…all while enjoying outstanding horse racing from a home straight vantage point.

The centrepiece of the Potters Paddock experience wil be the Nation Bar, produced by ultimate pop up event specialists, Nation Events. The Nation Bar will offer trackside hospitality meaning all of the action is quite literally ‘on the home straight.’ Nation Events managing director, Liz Pollock says, “There is nothing else quite like this in Australasia.” Liz points to the 220sqm of bespoke hospitality space that offers guests a feeling of permanance simply because of its high spec design and architectural functionality which she says for newcomers is a “Seeing is believing experience.”
