Members' dining

MCC member dining bookings for the 2020 AFL Premiership Season are currently not available due to the announcement that fans will not be able to attend the MCG for the foreseeable future as a result of the global COVID-19 pandemic.

Members can treat their guests to the Members Dining Room or Jim Stynes Grill at an event, sample cafes and bars, or enjoy a weekday sojourn to the Committee Room.

Event day

With numerous bars, dining rooms and cafes, there is something for everyone. Facilities are available on a walk-up basis like the Long Room, except the Members Dining Room (MDR) and Jim Stynes Grill (JSG), where bookings must be made (refer below table).

To get a taste of what our dining rooms have to offer, see the menus available below.

Non-match day

One of the lesser-known benefits of being an MCC member is the opportunity to avail yourself and guests of the function and dining facilities on offer at the MCG on non-match days.

Members can book fabulous locations such as the Members Dining Room, Long Room or Bullring Bar for private functions with a touch of class. Please note that use of the Long Room for private functions requires approval from the MCC Committee.

An excellent a la carte luncheon is served in the Committee Room on Level 2 of the Members Reserve, adjacent to the Long Room, on all weekday non-event days.

Please note that these facilities are currently closed due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.
