4 Simple Values, 1 Clear Vision
Sand Hill Road is a growing and leading Melbourne hospitality group.
We love what we do, the legends we do it with and the city we do it in. Our venues are loyal to their traditional pub roots while pushing the boundaries of new and bold, offering authentic and unforgettable experiences for everyone we welcome through our doors.
Built on mateship and renowned for re-imagining rundown icons, we strive to be unique, innovate, and inspire, redefining Melbourne’s hospo scene.
How We Came To Be
Sand Hill Road is owned by Doug, Tom, Matt, Andy and Andrew.
Back in 2000, Doug shared his dream of owning a pub with his best mates. They loved the idea so threw in their jobs, borrowed money from brave loved ones and bought their first pub, which they renovated and lived above with 17 mates.
Fast forward 20-something years, 12 pubs later and friendships still intact, the Boys’ dreams are only getting bigger.
Empowering Our People
Our people are the heart of our business and we are committed to their empowerment, development, wellbeing and recognition. We seek to encourage and nurture diversity in all aspects of our business. Our staff initiatives are collaborative and built on the insight, ideas and experiences of our team.
Her Hospo is our supportive, safe and inspiring community to empower Sand Hill Road’s female-identifying team. A proud addition to our growing wellbeing program, Her Hospo seeks to support the development of our emerging female leaders with regular events and workshops, an open and honest forum and ambitious network of likeminded women.
Through Her Hospo, we hope to foster change in our industry and strengthen the voice of female specific challenges, barriers and advantages.
Training is an integral part of our culture at Sand Hill Road. Our goal is to empower an engaged, skilled, knowledgeable team who are passionate about what they do and where they do it.
Our ever-evolving training program is championed by our incredible Senior Leadership Team who share their talents through engaging and comprehensive learning experiences focusing on skills; standards; product knowledge; leadership; operations and specialist opportunities.
Beyond The Bar
Beyond the Bar encourages our team to prioritise work-life balance through lifestyle classes targeting the mind, body and soul.
With monthly sessions ranging from meditation to self defence, cooking to Auslan, dance to art and everything in between, Beyond the Bar offers an opportunity to connect, refocus and step outside our comfort zones.
The Sandys are our way of recognising and rewarding legends living our values. Our team celebrate each other through nominations outlining how their workmates have positively impacted them through passion, positivity, respect and learning.
We distribute these virtual high fives via Sandy card every other month and award 4 standout nominations with unforgettable experience prizes (think skydiving, concert tickets, flights and day spas). Being awesome really does pay off!
