Love being up high overlooking the action. Usually very cozy (compared to an open venue like the MCG). Easy to get to being right next to Southern Cross Station.

perfect place when heading for an event especially concerts and sporting events. This venue has been renamed to Marvel stadium. Located at Southern cross station it is easily accessible from the city and public transport. Local parking is also available at a fee.
