Momento Hospitality, the recipient of numerous hospitality awards, is a leading hospitality provider whose reach expands across Sydney’s burgeoning Northwest for over 40 years. Their success is due to strong dedication to the offering and service they provide to their locals, which now boasts strong relationships and a rich heritage, with the region.
The group’s portfolio has a strong community focus and includes a charity organisation. The Momento Foundation aims to provide assistance to underprivileged members of the North West. It also supports the community in the field of sport, education, rehabilitation and challenges to the environment.
The Early Years
The Colosimo’s first embarked on their hospitality journey in 1976, opening a bottle shop in Baulkham Hills. Their philosophy was to “treat customers the way you want to be treated”.
In 1982, they embarked on new terrain. By building and opening the Castle Hill Tavern, their business developed a new element of community focus. Their desire to “give back” and “create environments that can be enjoyed by the whole family” has been at the forefront of their enterprise ever since. Retro Club, Adam’s Tavern and the now famous, Hillside Hotel, soon followed.
A New Millenium
Perfection of Beer
At the turn of the millennium, the Colosimo venture garnered a new dimension – creating the perfect beer. They purchased Potters Brewery and launched the Hunter Beer Company in 2002. Since then, they have moved their operation to The Australian Hotel & Brewery. Much like the hotel itself, their brew continues to be awarded for its excellence and has a myriad of accolades to assure its quality.
Bella Vista Hotel
In 2012, the family acquired the Bella Vista Hotel, injecting new life into the North West’s hospitality sector. The venue has since been rated as one of Sydney’s top 10 pubs, and also offers the biggest and best sporting events live and loud in AllStars Sports bar featuring over 97 flat screen TV’s.
The Governor Hotel
In July 2018, The Governor Hotel opened its doors in Macquarie Park, a sleekly designed venue incorporating a bistro, a garden terrace, and a rooftop bar. With new exciting venues coming, Momento continues to spread their message throughout greater Sydney area and help guests make fleeting moments into lasting memories.
Establishing the Hospitality Institute of NSW
In 2017, they established a registered training organisation, The Hospitality Institute of NSW. As the first hospitality tertiary education facility in the Northwest, it has a focus on premier hospitality training and education and assures candidates have a strong theoretical and practical background to make their hospitality dreams a reality.
Our Portfolio Grows
In December 2019, Mullane’s Hotel opened its doors and is already establishing itself as the ideal venue for the buzzing business district of Norwest Park and local residents alike, giving The Hills a taste of the city in the suburbs. Sporting a big public bar, a sophisticated Italian restaurant and cocktail bar, with its own in-house vodka and gin distillery, it’s safe to say this venue has a little something for everyone.
The Duke of Dural
The newest venue The Duke of Dural has opened it’s doors in November 2020. Offering a bistro, bar, outdoor terrace and gaming area, it will soon become the much-loved local of Dural. Enjoy all the best sporting action live and loud in the Duke Sport’s Bar. With 11 LED screens, TAB and bar serving your favourite beer and bar snacks – there’s no better place to watch the game with mates.
