The Keystone Group was founded in 2000 with the opening of Cargo Bar which quickly became Sydney’s leading hot spot for locals and international revelers 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 15 years, The Keystone Group expanded throughout Sydney and Australia, creating diverse venues each with their own distinct voice and place within an ever-changing hospitality culture.
