Food & Drinks

Rod Laver Arena offers a selection of high-quality food options – so no matter what you’re in the mood for, we’ve got you covered.

As well as several classic options (hot chips, anyone?), we’ve also got gourmet flat breads, fresh fish and Melbourne’s iconic Gradi Pronto pizzas.

In 2019, we launched our Grand Entrance, which has three levels of delicious food and drinks. Looking for the perfect spot to catch up with friends before a show? The Grand Entrance is a great meeting point!

If you want to make your event even more special, we have our glamorous rooftop at the Upper Deck, or Railyards Bistro & Bar if you fancy a sit-down meal pre-show.

The Grand Entrance will open at 5.30pm on event nights, so you can skip the crowds, queues and traffic. Settle in and experience our exciting new spaces for an even more enjoyable night out!

Railyards Bistro & Bar

Railyards Bistro & Bar is the perfect place to sit back and relax before the show with family and friends. Take the Grand Entrance escalator to level 3, grab a drink and a snack at the Bar or enjoy a delicious sit down meal in the Bistro.  

Want to book in at Railyards? 

There are three booking slots available on show nights: 5.30pm, 5.45pm and 6.00pm.  

To book, choose your event date and party size below, click ‘find table’ and which sitting you’d like. We will have some walk up tables available, but these are strictly first come first serve.

Bookings will open for upcoming events one week before the show day. Book early to avoid missing out!  

Upper Deck

If you’re looking for something special, look no further. Upper Deck boasts spectacular views of the MCG, AAMI Park and city skyline, and this open-air roof top bar is a great way to start your evening in style.  

With a (very) comprehensive drinks list and bar food classics available, Upper Deck offers a memorable, next level experience.  

Just a heads up: The Upper Deck may close due to weather and both Upper Deck and Railyards are cashless.

Rod Laver Arena Concourse

If you’re hungry but don’t have time to sit down pre-show, don’t stress. Our concourse has got you covered – there are so many options to choose from you’ll be sure to find something that tickles your taste buds.
