The venue also features a brand new 26-seat private dining room.

Rydges Geelong has unveiled a new restaurant and bar experience as part of a series of refurbishments across the property.

Nautica Pool Bar & Kitchen features indoor and alfresco dining and bar spaces and a locally sourced food concept.

The 130-seat restaurant also includes a 26-seat private dining room, Ms Nautica, perfect for corporate and private events.

Led by executive chef Eddie Basich, Nautica Pool Bar and Kitchen offers a menu of fresh, locally sourced produce, with a variety of shared plates, pizzas, grilled meats and seafood.

“Nautica has been designed to present hotel guests and the local community a great new option for delicious dining, weekend drinks, after work catch ups, corporate events and parties – it is the perfect place for a long lunch, client meeting or a relaxed sundowner,” said Rydges Geelong general manager Grant Melville.
