AO Reserve – The New Hospitality Experience Coming To The Australian Open

The Australian Open is introducing a new collection of hospitality experiences for the Australian Open 2025 and beyond – AO Reserve.

Marketed as premium experiences with high-quality hospitality and unmatched spectator opportunities throughout the day and night, Chief Commercial Officer Cedric Cornelias emphasises that AO Reserve attendees will have a seamless and memorable journey.

Set to feature top hospitality figures in Australia, including culinary icons Shimpei Raikuni from Brisbane’s esteemed Sushi Room, acclaimed Melbourne chef Alejandro Saravia (Morena, Victoria and Farmer’s Daughters), and the beloved Rockpool Bar and Grill, which will introduce The Bistro by Rockpool at the core of the venue. Melbourne’s beloved Nick and Nora’s cocktail bar will also make a return to delight guests with their unique concoctions. Renowned London restaurateur Abel Lusa, known for his popular restaurant Cambio de Tercio, will bring a uniquely Australian summer dining experience with a Spanish touch to the exclusive Champions Rooftop. Australian-owned Grandmaster Recorders from Los Angeles, a hotspot for restaurants and bars, will curate the menu at Riverside Social, an ultra-chic rooftop cocktail lounge offering breathtaking views of Melbourne’s skyline.

AO Reserve not only promises exceptional dining adventures, but also ensures access to prime spots in Rod Laver Arena, along with exclusive experiences such as backstage tours, interactions with tennis legends, opportunities to hold the Australian Open trophies, live musical performances, and in-seat culinary services.

“We are thrilled to introduce AO Reserve,” commented Tennis Australia’s Head of Product Growth and Innovations, Fern Barrett. “From the meticulously designed spaces and handpicked culinary talents to the exclusive behind-the-scenes access and premier viewing positions, these full-day and night experiences break new ground at the Australian Open. “It exemplifies the Australian Open’s commitment to innovation and setting new benchmarks in event hospitality.”

AO Reserve experiences can be purchased for the Australian Open 2025 here. The food program for the Australian Open 2025 precinct will be revealed when tickets go on sale in October.
