Members Dining Room

The a-la-carte dining in the Members Dining Room on event day sees members and guests able to enjoy an amazing offering.

The menu includes four choices of entrees, main courses and desserts, afternoon tea, an extensive wine list and superb views of the MCG and back into the city. 

In fairness to all, the club uses a ballot system for members wishing to make bookings in the Members Dining Room for events at the MCG.

Registrations for the ballot are typically taken online or by phone (03 9657 8888) from 9.00am on the Monday two weeks prior to each event until 5.00pm the following day.

The Members Dining Room is also a popular room for conferences, seminars and presentation nights.
