Kick-starting the 2019 season, Rod Laver Arena has unveiled a brand-new three level pod-style guest entrance in time for the Australian Open tournament, which wrapped up its final championship match.
The arena has unveiled the completion of its new dining and bar offerings, including The Balloon Bar, Railyards Bistro & Bar, Upper Deck, The Observatory, The Racquet Club and The Superbox Lounge, all of which are paired with world-class Australian hospitality and their own unique identity.
The revamped dining and bar spaces will open for the 15,000 people confirmed to attend the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) on February 10.
“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. 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,” said, Lara Burnes, general manager, Premier Events & Experiences, Melbourne & Olympic Parks.
