Race Night Dining Packages

Race Night Dining Packages

The Melbourne Greyhounds can cater for groups of diners in our Temlee Dining Room wings on a Saturday Race Night. We offer set course dining and beverage packages – and can even gift you a race name to make the night all that little more fun and memorable.

Make it more than just dinner and racing with friends or the family.

The real beauty of deciding to attend a Saturday Race Night at the Melbourne Greyhounds is the flexibility in our food and beverage offer. You can simply choose to dine in our brilliant City View Bistro or at a indoor or outside table on the concourse level with food purchased from the Midas Cafe and Bar – or take it up a level and arrange a set course seated or cocktail Race Night Dining & Entertainment Package, served in your own private area.

Our grand Temlee Dining Room offers more than just our City View Bistro. A unique and inspiring room, it has a large main dining area that can hold up to 200 diners and a pair of east and west wings that can cater for smaller seated groups of up to 30 and 50 people respectively. (More for a cocktail style function). These wings allow guests to hold private functions on a Saturday Race Night and still enjoy sensational elevated track views, seated dining, tote and bar access. For those who’d prefer to be closer to the action, there’s ‘The Deck‘, the most sophisticated entertainment space we offer (read on below) as well as The Terrace.

If you’re seeking a unique night out, where great food, entertainment and a little privacy is paramount, then contact the Melbourne Greyhounds hospitality team to discuss a Race Night Dining & Entertainment Package and the hiring of your own on course space.

Saturday Race Nights are perfect for a:

  • Hens Party
  • Bucks Party
  • Birthday Celebration
  • Sporting Club Function
  • Engagement Party
  • Girls or Mates Night Out
  • Entertaining Clients
  • Work or Staff Function

Seated Dining Packages

Dine the night away in style. Choose from a simple 2-course meal to a three course culinary extravaganza and create a night to remember.

Cocktail Dining Packages

Enjoy moorish ‘walk & fork’ options in a room set up for a cocktail function. Choose from just Roving Canapes (includes six canapé dishes and a main plate), then add in Antipasto Platters and Dessert Boards to make it a more delectable occasion.

Beverage Dining Packages

Top off your selected dining option with unlimited refreshments. Keep it simple with all the standards (beer, wine & cider) or elevate it to include spirits and cocktails.

What if you’d prefer to be located somewhere else around our expansive venue? Maybe the racing component is something you’re looking to avoid and want to host a stand-alone event? Great news, we've got options!

More places to dine and be entertained on a race night

If our grand Temlee dining room and either of its east and west wings aren’t exactly what you’re looking for, there are other spaces at the Melbourne Greyhounds to be entertained.

Introducing ‘The Deck’– the most sophisticated entertainment space we offer at The Meadows. As its name suggests (yep, the events and marketing team really went all out on this one), it comprises of a brilliant indoor space, with it’s own private bar, multiple audio-visual screens and bi-fold doors that open out and onto a wide timber boarded outside deck, located right next to the 525 meter start boxes. Architecturally sleek and modern, and with the ability to be heated or split system cooled it can be utilised in any season.

Oh, and did we mention it’s ideal for those seeking a party space that suits a stand-up cocktail function? A favourite with bucks, hens and work parties, this space is a great entertaining area for any social celebratory function or event. It’s also located in a prime position for race nights – right near the 525m starting boxes and amongst all the face paced action!

Organised a function of 50 people. We were offered the private room (on a race night) which was fantastic. Turned out to be a fabulous night. Would highly recommend this venue for a private function and the food was yummy to top it off. Liz T.

We held a private function here. It was fantastic, the staff are wonderful, helpful and very accommodating. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was exciting. Susan P.

This is my absolute favourite restaurant of the greyhound clubs. Fine dining at its best. The food is always fantastic and no matter what I order I am always delighted with my meal! Service is also great and always efficient, happy and polite. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to anyone looking for somewhere to eat and a great night out. Tess G.
