THE MAISON MUMM HOTEL UNVEILED

THE MAISON MUMM HOTEL UNVEILED

THE FIRST-EVER LUXURY HOTEL TO POP UP IN THE BIRDCAGE

G.H. Mumm, the avant-garde champagne house, has unveiled The Maison Mumm, a luxury hotel themed marquee in the Birdcage that has experiences at the forefront of the design. During Melbourne Cup Carnival, exclusive guests will be invited to check-in and experience two-levels of five-star style throughout the Melbourne Cup Carnival which kicks off with Derby Day on Saturday November 2nd.
 

 

For Media Preview Day, each member of the Mumm Collective was in attendance with Dion Lee, fresh from New York, cutting the Mumm red sash to signify the official opening of the Maison Mumm Hotel. To set the tone for the festivities to come, co-hosts Kate Peck and Chris Sheehy simultaneously staged the famous Mumm ‘tap-tap’ amidst lava coloured smoke bombs, a grand visual display of champagne and colour, showering upwards and outwards from a magnum of Mumm’s Grand Cordon.

Dion’s innovative capsule collection will not only be the official uniform of the Maison Mumm, but will also be sold exclusively at Dion Lee in-store and online. The collection is inspired by the avant-garde spirit of the champagne house and draws upon Dion’s signature tailoring and form, combining contrasts of sculptural and fluid silhouettes. Guests this week of the Maison Mumm will be invited to appreciate the collection, on display in the Maison Mumm.

Contributing to the culinary element of the marquee is Merivale’s executive chef, Dan Hong, who has curated an east meets west French Asian fusion menu. Guests will be served delicious canape style offerings such as tartlet of stracciatella, kombu and black truffle; fresh Vietnamese rolls with enoki mushroom and silken tofu; duck rillettes banh mi with pickled daikon and coriander; and steak frites with bearnaise sauce.
