Aontinuing their tradition to celebrate fabulous destinations found on their flight route, Emirates have transformed their Spring Racing marquee into a celebration of all things Germany – complete with slap dancers. The marquee is less beerhall, more Brothers Grimm, with fairytale fantasy touching every aspect on the space. Designed to pay homage to the facade of the Neuschwanstein Castle, it is the largest marquee in the Birdcage with a prime view of the track.


The marquee has an undeniable feeling of luxe, bolstered by the inclusion of the pamper lounge, where some of the worlds best make up artists and massage therapists including those from Lancôme and the Emirates Weldon Valley Resort and Spa, and celebrity hairstylist Joey Scandizzo will be on hand to provide touch ups.


The menu is also inspired by German culture; with modern twists taken on old classics like veal schnitzel, sauerkraut and apple strudel, and a dedicated mobile pretzel bar. The Emirates marquee is also boasting the only fully serviced, sit-down restaurant in the Birdcage.


Adding a little modernity to the traditional German theme is the eye-catching artwork by celebrated artist, Mark Schaller. Taking over five weeks to complete, the colourful piece was created to celebrate the fun of the races and is in prime position to help guests get in the spirit of the day.
