Everyone has to go to the arena just to see how magnificent it is-- tennis, live bands and to think in 2006, the gymnastics were held for the Commonwealth games-- great in every way

Went on a day pass to see matches played outdoors, also look at all the sponsors exhibits. The Aussie open has many attractions other than the matches good for children to try there skills at various tennis attractions.

First concert at Rod Laver, it was great, although if you were down on the floor standing, it took a while to get out. Exiting could be improved, you basically have to wait until the seated people leave to get up and out the stairs.

I have been here for several events, the most recent being for Disney on Ice. Perfect venue for it as well as a fantastic venue for concerts and of course the tennis.

Went to a Hans Zimmer concert at this iconic stadium. Well organised, seating good and acoustics fine. Plenty of food/drink outlets. Tennis next time!!

Sorry I don't know either .
Where exactly at Rob Laver is 'The Loft' bar? It says access to bowl seating, so it more at the ground level? Also can you see the stage from the bar...i.e. could you sit and watch a few songs from there or is it more get your drinks and go back to your seat?

The Loft is a separate upstairs area with a balcony. It doesn't overlook the arena. It does have it's own toilets, bar area for drinks and a food menu also. It has couches to relax in while you wait for the show and you can... More
I want to meet friends at a bar before a concert at Rod Laver. I will be on foot so where would the nearest bar be? Also want to continue after the concert. Thank you if anyone knows.

Perhaps you can meet up a Federation Square then walk to Rod Laver. its probably a 10 to 15 min walk.
