  • MCG Events, elevating the event experience

    October 11, 2022

    The Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) is more than a stadium. ​It’s a special place. ​A meeting place. ​A place where greatness is created.​

    An unforgettable business event doesn’t always have to equate to a large-scale event and MCG Events proves that small too can be epic.  

    In the heart of the coveted Members Reserve is the exclusive Melbourne Cricket Club (MCC) Committee Room. Featuring spectacular views towards the hallowed turf and an exceptional range of paintings, photographs and iconic features, the Committee Room depicts the MCG’s long and proud history.

    For the first time, the Committee Room restaurant is available to book for work functions or networking lunches on non-event days.  MCG Events has proudly partnered with iconic Melbourne chef Guy Grossi, to elevate your next business event or networking lunch with the Guests of the Grossi Dining Experience.

    For those who haven’t been fortunate enough to experience a Guy meal let alone in such a prestigious setting as the MCC Committee Room, Guy Grossi is renowned as Australia’s most respected master of Italian food. Whether it be a team celebration, networking lunch or as part of curated immersion into the history of the stadium, this will make for a memorable experience.

    Bookable for 20-80 guests, the Grossi Dining Experience includes a four-course meal with matched wines in the Committee Room and an appearance from Guy Grossi to provide an insight into his approach to ingrained Italian traditions with Australian culture.

    Highlights of the Events by Guy Grossi seated event menus include;

    • Cured kingfish pizzaiola – Tomato, olives, oregano
    • Vitello Tonnato – Roquette, parmesan, capers, lemon
    • Half shell Hervey Bay scallops – Venetian almond, brioche crust
    • Braised leg, roasted breast of Hazeldene’s free-range chicken – White wine vinegar, saffron, pine nuts, sultanas, fregola, baby leeks
    • Porchetta – Roasted free range pork belly, red cabbage puree, witlof, quince, apple cider
    • Barramundi fillet – Almond herb, crust celeriac puree, Tuscan kale, lemon almond vermouth sauce
    • For dessert lovers, make sure room is left for the famous Tiramisu

    In an exciting extension, an additional Guy Grossi curated menu is also available to business event planners who book work functions or conferences across the MCG’s event spaces.

    Working with business event planners, MCG Events can curate experiences that activate small spaces and corporate suites. For larger gatherings, with the Olympic Room and Members Dining Room each having capacity for up to 1,000 guests in a cocktail configuration. 

    Event planners can access a virtual replica of the MCG with an immersive 360 walk through the 35 function rooms, the concourse, the arena, the bars and the dining outlets to start conceptualising the next unforgettable event.
