A philosophy based on food, people & service...
25 years ago, brothers Christopher, Theodore, Peter Drivas & business partner Robert Van Meer combined their hospitality, wedding & business expertise to form the Dockside Group. The close-knit family business now boasts 8 Sydney venues & restaurants all situated in iconic Sydney Harbour locations.
1986: The story with the founding of WatersEdge Restaurant at Pier One, Walsh Bay. Transformed from a seafood restaurant to a quality venue in 1993, fast becoming the most admired wedding venue in Sydney, winning the ABIA Best Wedding Venue in 1994 & 1995 amongst it's many accolades
1998: Dockside Group grew to include Dockside, a large function venue on the 1st level of the Cockle Bay Wharf. A leading conference & function venue now recognised as a market leader in the events & meetings industry
2001: The group acquired L'Aqua, on the roof top of Darling Park just above Dockside - successfully re-launched as a contemporary, stylish conference & special event function venue with state-of-the art audiovisual & technical facilities
2005: Star Room joined the portfolio, atop the Imax Theatre complex, with extensive views of Darling Harbour & the CBD. Soon after, Ice Cube Seafood Grill & Bar was acquired below the complex, then in 2011 was refurbished & reopened as a stylish new gourmet pizza restaurant, EAT LOVE PIZZA
2007 & 2008: The group acquired Italian Village, Waterfront & Wolfies in Sydney's historic Rocks precinct. One of the most captivating dining positions in Sydney, with unparalleled views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge & world famous Opera House
