Mumm Champagne is set to bring a bit of French flair to next month’s Auckland Cup Week, channelling the vibes of the French Riviera with food, fashion and music.

On the banks of Ellerslie Racecourse, the Mumm Racing Village will host its very own “Club de Plage” inspired beach club, for a day of exciting entertainment, popping bottles and ocean side vibes.

The  Club  promises to deliver the best of European beach clubs to Auckland,  with its white sails, day beds and beach bars.

The event will showcase the best the Champagne world has to offer, along with hospitality and entertainment from some of New Zealand’s hottest acts.

The Racing Village will host New Zealand based DJ duo Sweet Mix Kids and guests on the stage, as well as electronic R&B duo, Jupiter Project.

The excitement will build throughout the day and into the night as Mumm hosts the official after-party for Auckland’s race-goers.

You can buy your way into the party — which also has a VIP area of course. Spy knows A-Listers will be turning on the charm  as organisers select who will make it as a Veep on the Riviera trackside.

Tickets range from an $85 package on Derby Day, March 4 to $175 on Cup Day, March 11.
