Unveiled in-line with the excitement of racing season (running, or should we say galloping, from May – September 2017) Hamilton Park’s hospitality and event areas have undergone an extensive refurbishment.
This bright, beautiful and white building has been drawing in punters for almost a century, attracted by venue’s reputation for mixing quality racing with glamour and entertainment. Situated in over 20 acres of idyllic green lawns, it’s hard to believe that the racecourse is only 15 miles from Glasgow’s City Centre; attracting guests from all over Scotland and the North of England to their beautifully appointed hospitality areas and uninterrupted views of the action.
With a new, bold aesthetic, Duke’s Suite (also known as the Duke’s Bar & Restaurant) has adopted cool new flooring, teal blue walls and contemporary furniture. The dining room can comfortably seat 160 guests for race-day dinners and lunches and, otherwise, makes a funky event suite. The perfect room for that something blue during wedding receptions…
The Panorama Bar has also adopted blue walls and new, modern furnishings. The space is open plan, with light flooding in through room-length windows and creating a social, spacious environment. The new AC system (also installed in The Duke’s Suite) allows guests to keep their cool in the clamour and excitement of race days.
The biggest change however, is to that of the Conservatory Café. Renamed The Hill, it is now a family friendly bar and eatery with a brand new outdoor serving area. This offers guests the chance to grab a bite to eat al fresco whilst enjoying stunning views across the parade-ring. The interior is chic, with arches stretching across high ceilings, painted pillars and wooden, art-deco flooring.
The re-design was confirmed after the signing of a new, 10-year contract with Sodexo (Prestige Venues & Events’ parent company), which allowed Hamilton Park to invest for the renovations. The Hamilton Park Trust ploughs back all profits into developing the course, constantly improving the racecourse’s facilities and customer experience – making Hamilton Park Racecourse first past the post when it comes to style, events and hospitality
