Hospitality, Travel & Tourism

At Merivale, we aim to bring a little magic into the everyday. We are driven to deliver unique and memorable experiences to every person who steps into one of our venues.

Owned and run by the Hemmes Family for over 60 years, Merivale began as an iconic fashion house started by John and Merivale Hemmes. Merivale’s fashionable beginnings were soon followed by a venture into hospitality, opening a Thai tea café in their Sydney CBD fashion building in 1970. From here, Merivale’s hospitality roots were firmly planted.

Merivale is now led by CEO Justin Hemmes, whose creative knack for pushing the boundaries has made Merivale what it is today. Hemmes became a pioneer within the Australian hospitality industry, growing the ever-expanding Merivale portfolio to over 80 brands and venues.
