PARADE at Chester Racecourse announces the new season in style

PARADE - Chester

Chester Racecourse will open PARADE; its intimate, stunning and stylish race day venue for the start of a new season on Wednesday the 8th of May at the 2024 Boodles May Festival – the most well-known racing fixture to take place at Chester and steeped in history. Featuring three Derby Trials, a glamorous Ladies Day and the infamous Chester Cup Day, these three days truly are the jewel in Chester’s crown.

PARADE is positioned in the ultimate location for any race-goer, alongside the finishing post, and with 360-degree views of the whole racecourse from the roof terrace. The stunning space hosts just 70 guests and is exquisitely designed both inside and out. The exceptional and sophisticated live-sports entertainment experience is one of the best at any sporting venue and features a fine-dining restaurant, exclusive bar, summer garden roof bar and viewing terrace.

A dedicated, professional Concierge team is on hand at all times to offer impeccable service from start to finish, from personally chaperoning guests from their cars to the sanctuary of the Laurent-Perrier Rosé Champagne Reception upon arrival, to any other requirements which may arise during your time at PARADE or any arrangements leading up to the day.

A first-class fine-dining experience awaits in the sumptuous surroundings of the restaurant, which offers a bespoke seasonal five-course gastronic journey celebrating local suppliers,  and changes each race day. Early evening light bites from around the world and elegant signature cocktails are also served post-racing to the chilled out sounds of the resident DJ, allowing you to soak up the unique atmosphere and indulge in some celebrating as the sun sets on your day.

PARADE is an exclusive venue, offering an exceptional experience for race goers who want to enjoy their day in complete style, from special occasions to corporate hospitality it offers a sanctuary from the crowds yet without missing out on any of the electric atmosphere of race day. PARADE is also available for private events throughout the year.

Here’s what customers are saying:

“The whole thing was wonderful; the service we received, all the staff, the knowledge of Cino the sommelier, the food and drink, the décor, the utter luxury, and, of course, the excellent viewing.”

“PARADE is such a lovely restaurant. I really like the space both in the restaurant and upstairs on the terrace and the service is always excellent. What’s more you are in the heart of the whole race day, yet at PARADE you never feel crowded which gives it a lovely feel.”

“It’s the quality that makes PARADE so appealing – the staff, the property and its position on the finishing line all contribute to the feeling of it being ‘special’.”
