Have you been looking for a great place to eat before attending concerts in Melbourne? On Gate 3, Level 1 of Marvel Stadium, it’s never been easier to grab a bite before a show.

Whether planning a night of live music, booking your favourite artists, or eager to tell stories about your next AFL game night, Friends of Fire is the perfect place to share fire-grilled meals just as you enter the stadium. Find food and entertainment in one place.

Friends of Fire: A Better Way to Enjoy Entertainment

Game days and major events–such as concerts in Melbourne–bring thousands to the city to eat, drink, and shop, and Friends of Fire is a place to share these moments.

Instead of waiting in line for hot chips, pies, soft drinks and frantically rushing back to your seat, why not relax and eat something more delightful before the live performance?

Better yet, Friends of Fire is open until 1 am, so you can come back for more before heading home. It’s a win-win for everyone!

Bold Flavours and Innovative Dishes

As a convenient way to get your fill of food, what can you plate on the Friends of Fire menu? Inspired by traditional American cuisine, you and your friends are bound to come back for more.

  • A Gaucho-style Argentinian skirt steak with chimichurri and smoke-grilled chicken with Alabama white sauce can be enjoyed by the fire.
  • Our classic Reuben with toasted rye, pastrami, sauerkraut, melted Swiss cheese, and Russian dressing is popular on Game days!
