Victoria Park has celebrated the opening of its new three-tiered Terrace Area and Orchard Bar with a Sunset Party launch.

The showcase event welcomed 250 local community members and media representatives, with longstanding venue sponsors Stone & Wood, Carlton United Breweries and Robert Oakley Vineyard supporting the evening with complimentary drinks on arrival.

Executive chef Jason Peppler also designed a special Sunset Party menu to mark the occasion.

Opened just in time for summer, this expansion of Victoria Park’s much loved bar and bistro now joins several other 2016 precinct renovations, including the Bar and Bistro’s new playground, weekend market carts, giant games area and on-site growing gardens.

The main Terrace Area with Orchard Bar seats up to 150 guests on picnic-style table seating, with an additional level built to include a cactus farm and outdoor lounge furniture seating an additional 30 guests.
