Who are Smith + Singleton?

We’re a bunch of like-minded hospitality types. We’re always thinking about food and drinks, making time to go out and enjoy cafes, restaurants and bars at home and afar.

Some of us have worked together for a long time, some of us have only just met. But all of us are looking forward to watching Smith + Singleton grow.

As for the original Smith + Singleton, they were the civic-minded trailblazers who started the first Melbourne Children’s Hospital. The guys who began the institution that looks after all of our kids today.

We’re proud to bear their name and to honour their memory.
