New event space at Melbourne & Olympic Parks

A string of new and refurbished event spaces set to open across the sporting precinct.

Melbourne & Olympic Parks (M&OP) has announced a series of refurbished spaces across the precinct, which aim to revamp Melbourne’s iconic sporting event experience. 

Off the back of the Australian Tennis Open, Rod Laver Arena announced a series of new dining and bar offerings, including The Balloon Bar, Railyards Bistro & Bar, Upper Deck, The Observatory, The Racquet Club and The Superbox Lounge. 

The revamped dining and bar spaces will open for the 15,000 people confirmed to attend the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) on February 10, 2019.

“Melbourne Park is home to some of Australia’s most legendary sporting moments in history. Our mission for refurbishment was driven by our love for entertainment, in which we wanted to immerse audiences and guests with the atmosphere of the event,” Lara Burnes, general manager – premier events & experiences, Melbourne & Olympic Parks, said. 

“Whether at the Australian Open Tennis Championship or a corporate event – the event space is the key ingredient in creating the experience and ultimately guests’ life-long memories.”

M&OP offers flexible event spaces across AAMI Park, Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne Arena and Margaret Court Arena.

“Our immersive private event rooms are designed to adapt to any occasion,” Burnes added. “We offer bespoke behind the scenes tours through AAMI Park allowing people to walk in the footsteps of some of the country’s iconic sporting heroes.”

M&OP’s new function and media centre will be unveiled at the Asia Pacific Incentives and Meetings Event next month (18-20 February 2019).
