The Keystone Group was founded in 2000 with the opening of its first venue, Cargo Bar which quickly rose to become Sydney’s leading hot spot for locals and international revellers during the Sydney Olympics. From the outset, it was clear that the group had a knack for understanding the way Sydney wanted to eat, drink and experience entertainment.
Over the next 14 years, The Keystone Group quickly expanded to all corners of Sydney, creating a range of diverse venues each with their own distinct voice and place within Sydney’s hospitality culture. It has developed a suite of premium brands that work together to ensure many of the desires of Sydney’s discerning foodies & bar enthusiasts are met. With a dedicated following throughout Sydney, The Keystone Group has adapted and matured to cater to the needs and tastes of its loyal patrons, constantly looking to improve and enhance the ever-changing local communities. The group prides itself on innovation and works with a variety of organisations in order to serve these communities.
A major and recent development has seen the group acquire a highly successful portfolio of restaurants including the Chophouse and Kinglsey’s Steak and Crabhouse, as well as the exclusive rights to all existing and future Jamie’s Italian Restaurants in Australia and New Zealand. This means the spread of Keystone venues will now extend from Sydney to other capital cities including Perth, Adelaide, Canberra and Brisbane. This move further cements the group’s position as dynamic leaders in the hospitality sector.
With over 15 years of experience in developing a balanced mix of different styles of venues, The Keystone Group prides itself on its reputation within the industry, as being leaders when it comes to service, personality and our ability to talk to all generations. The company’s recent expansion has also seen the evolution of their experience in working with key stakeholders and investors. The group will continue its work in identifying significant opportunities both locally and abroad and welcomes the chance to collaborate with quality and food and beverage brands who share in Keystone’s company ethos and desire for large scale growth.
