AFL Kitchen & Bar Now Open – Melbourne Airport

AFL Kitchen & Bar

21 DEC 2019 – Emirates Leisure Retail is pleased to announce the opening of the AFL Kitchen & Bar in Melbourne Airport in partnership with the Australian Football League, combining Australians love for travel and football. 

Located in Terminal 3 of Melbourne Airport, the AFL Kitchen & Bar is more than just a family restaurant.

It unites fans through their love for the game, inviting families to relax and enjoy some food and refreshments in a dynamic environment while taking in the stunning view of the airfield.

The venue is conducting a pre-launch from Sunday 22nd December, exciting the Christmas traveller moving through the airport during the busiest week of the calendar year.
A pre-launch sample menu is available, which will include a breakfast menu, great range of pizzas, wide selection of salads and something for our smaller fans through the kids pack menu.

In early 2020, AFL Kitchen & Bar will officially be welcomed to Melbourne Airport with an opening event celebrated by the teams at the AFL, ELR, key media and athletes. The menu will then extend to include all the footy favourites in the lead up to the launch of the 2020 Toyota AFL Premiership Season.

AFL General Manager Commercial Kylie Rogers said, “the opening of the AFL Kitchen & Bar demonstrates the AFL and Emirates Leisure Retail’s unwavering commitment in bringing travellers unique, world-class food and beverage concepts.”

“Football has the unique ability to unite fans across the country with the AFL Kitchen & Bar uniting groups or individual travellers in their passion of the game.
“Flying into Melbourne, or interstate for a match the AFL Kitchen & Bar will give you a footy fix prior to departure or as soon as you land. The AFL is delighted to be able to bring fans another world class partnership with Emirates Leisure Retail.”

Managing Director of Emirates Leisure Retail AUS/NZ Justin Scotti said: “There is nothing Melbournians are more passionate about than AFL! We believe this concept will be a world first of its kind in any airport around the world. This will be so much more than a Bar!”
