In 2009, a couple of guys thought it would be fun to build a bar. Today, Tadcaster has 14 concepts across Australasia.
At Tadcaster Hospitality, we aim to provide goods, services, and ambiance of the highest calibre whilst delivering superior value to our customers. Each of our venues has a unique character, whether it be a tranquil, family-friendly cafe or an ultra chic nightclub and lounge, our concepts delight with originality, and ensure a memorable experience.
The Bull and Bear was the first concept developed as part of the Tadcaster Hospitality family back in 2009, and was built quite simply as the ideal place we'd like to hang out (far too frequently) for a pint. We quickly started expanding the brand in Singapore's CBD with bq bar, Dharma's Kebabs, Molly Malone's and Hospitality Concepts Asia - a consultancy company specialising in the Food and Beverage Industry. Over the next few years, The Exchange (2011) and Cafe Melba at Goodman Arts Centre (2012) were born, rounding off our Singapore portfolio for a few years so we could launch Tadcaster Australia and unveil three new concepts: The Emerson (Australia's Nightclub of the year in both 2014 and 2015), The Bluestone (which we sold in 2019), and Jacksons & Co. (which we sold in 2016).
In 2014, we ventured into the Philippines, constructing and opening The Social- a cafe, bar and music hub wrapped up into one go-to spot in Cebu. Having firmly put down our Tadcaster Philippines roots, we opened The Social, Seaside Saloon Bar & Grill in November 2016 and The Park Social in 2017.
Don't worry, we always remember where we came from! Cafe Melba at Mediapolis opened in May 2016, bringing Cafe Melba's charm to Singapore's West-siders, who graciously travelled across the country for brunch at Cafe Melba Goodman Arts Centre for so many years!
