About Banner

Dixon Hospitality is a modern and credible addition to the hospitality landscape in Australia.

Established in 2012 by Bruce and Michael Dixon, the team has been deliberate in acquiring well operated venues with a focus on an exceptional gastronomic experience or unique surroundings. Dixon Hospitality is privately owned and committed to growth.

In late 2015 the company acquired Open Door Pub Co which included 16 contemporary venues. As part of the acquisition, Melbourne Venue Company also joined the Dixon team. This team is focussed on finding the perfect function space for corporate functions, private dinners, celebrations and special occasions.

Each of our venues have their own personality and distinctive menu, because we think that’s what our guests expect.

Put simply we’re focused on combining great spaces with great produce, great chefs and an outstanding team.
