Members' dining

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 by Grossi.

Match day

With numerous bars, dining rooms and cafes available in the Members' Reserve there is something for everyone. Many facilities are available on a walk-up basis.

The Members' Dining Room (MDR) and Jim Stynes Grill (JSG) are open for all matches, and bookings must be made in advance.

The Committee Room by Grossi (CRbG) will be available for selected weekend matches.

Applications for dining in the Members’ Dining Room and Jim Stynes Grill can be made through the MCC website on each event page or by calling the Club on (03) 9657 8888.

When registrations for the Boxing Day Test and International ODI exceed room capacity, a ballot will be conducted and all registered members will be notified of the outcome.

At the time of registering members will be required to provide:
  • Name

The number of visitors permitted for dining at each match is outlined in the 2022/23 cricket guide, here. Members and visitors who secure dining in the Members’ Dining Room (and Committee Room by Grossi when available to members) will also access a Level 2 reserved seat as part of their booking. To gain entry, members will scan in with their membership card and visitors are able to obtain a general admission visitors ticket.

Bookings for BBL matches will be processed in a first-in, first-served manner from the dates listed here.

Additional dining
On select match days, the Club may have access to other dining facilities within or close to the Members’ Reserve. Members who are unsuccessful in the ballot will be offered priority access to attractive match day dining packages in these facilities. This will be communicated following the ballot if applicable.

Non-match day

One of the lesser-known benefits of being an MCC member is the opportunity to avail yourself and your 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.

MCC members can be treated to an enhanced culinary experience in the Members' Reserve as Guy Grossi brings his famed food and service to the MCC Committee Room at the MCG. Located on Level 2 of the Members' Reserve, adjacent to the Long Room, the Committee Room restaurant will be open for lunch service from Tuesday to Friday weekly on non-match days for bookings where patrons will enjoy hospitality from one of Melbourne's most highly regarded chefs.
