Melbourne Cup atop a Treehouse where lunch was the winning bet
Melbourne Cup day has seen MiSociety in many venues from Sydney to Melbourne but the running of the cup in 2012 was the first spent in a treehouse – The Treehouse Hotel in North Sydney that is.  What an excellent choice it turned out to be.

The Treehouse Hotel resembles a leafy oasis perched above the bustling streets of North Sydney and this day, adding to the fun and quirky décor, was a stampede of inflatable ponies bobbing above bales of hay with flowers and balloons festooning all over. 

Languishing amongst all the green foliage should have given out a hint, but alas, Green Moon romped home the winner of the Cup minus MiSociety’s monetary encouragement.

The Treehouse Hotel was a sell out for their Melbourne Cup day lunch with a good mixed crowd, many of whom being regulars at the popular venue. . Ladies love a get-to-gether for Melbourne Cup day and here there were several tables where ‘some good girly fun’ was top of the race card. 

La Mere De Django’s upbeat Gypsy style music had the crowd happily jigging along as our three course lunch arrived.  The Treehouse Hotel has a lively and casual ambience but there is nothing ‘casual’ about the food.  Starters of Tuna Carpaccio with celeriac remoulade and baby herbs and the Pork Belly with chilli caramel and pickled vegetable were both delicious.  Mains of the Confit Duck leg roast and the Eye Fillet with pommes sarladaises were both of high quality and very tasty.  

The Treehouse Hotel is not another ‘over slicked city bar’- it is a comfortable space  with quality food and a really nice airy feel added to by pleasant and professional staff who all made sure this day was enjoyed by all.  Well done - again!   The Treehouse Hotel website
