The Deck

Silks Darwin’s 50m deck is where the indoor melts into the great outdoors, where you can treat yourself to drinks against a backdrop of Fannie Bay’s tropical greenery. With a 50-meter expansive deck and an emerald lawn right on the track, there are plenty of spots to make your own year-round. Meet your friends for a fresh cocktail and a meal, or enjoy weekly live music to a cold beer.



The only rooftop bar in Fannie Bay promises unrivalled views of the track, chick spots to enjoy drinks with your friends or simply enjoy the sun and the fresh air. Join us each Sunday on the rooftop bar for Bottomless Sundays. Fresh beats, bottomless sangria, and a good time while watching the sunset is Darwin’s newest experience. Head to the events page to see when the next Bottomless Sunday is and to our functions page to see how you can hire this space for yourself.



Corporate events, weddings, functions, parties, and celebrations – whatever your event is, our functions space can host it all year round. Treat your guests to trackside views in an air-conditioned space, let us cater with a number of sit down or stand up options, and see the vast range of drinks available to you.
