It wouldn’t be a birthday celebration without a mouth-watering spread, and in true Crown style, there will be an epic selection of food and drink to enjoy.
The Silver Jubilee cocktail, is an elegant take on the classic martini, made from Roku gin and dry fino sherry to showcase the citrus flavours, plus a dash of whisky for added spice and heat. Order yours at Nobu, Bistro Guillaume, Silks, Koko and Conservatory, Lumia Bar, Atrium Bar and Velvet Bar.
If you fancy a bittersweet drop, start your evening with a Silver Martini at The Atlantic. Shaken up with Tanqueray, Dry Vermouth, Maraschino Liqueur and orange bitters, this was adapted from Harry Craddock’s iconic 1930s “Savoy Cocktail Book”, you know it’s going to be pure class. Or, try The Silver Fizz at Rockpool Bar and Grill, Spice Temple and Rosetta, a new take on a classic with delicate notes of Jasmine, Juniper and Creme de Violette permeate through this silky, smooth textured drink.
Hungry? For the month of July, you can also indulge in any pizza and Peroni from Gradi for just $25 (Monday — Friday, 12 — 5pm). Plus Margo’s and Emporio Pizza & Pasta, are offering diners a free upgrade of five pan-fried prawns in garlic and herb butter with any 300g grilled Gippsland T-bone steak for an extra $5. Or if Asian cuisine is more your flavour, Sho and Tia To will be serving up five wok fried prawns with XO sauce to any Asian dish on the Hearty Flavours menu for just $5.

We all know it wouldn’t be a party without a generous dose of live entertainment. You can expect to be given the birthday treatment as Crown scales into overdrive with all of your favourite venues playing music til late.
There will also be roving birthday entertainment around the complex, featuring magicians, face painters and dancers to get you well and truly in the birthday mood, plus a special performance by Ricki-Lee in the Atrium.
