AHA 2016 – Winners!

The Morrison wins Best Promotional Concept


On the evening of Tuesday 29th November 2016, the annual Australian Hospitality Awards took place at the glamourous STAR casino in Sydney.

The prestigious awards ceremony recognises the hard work and achievements of the hospitality industry across the state of NSW, and those who’ve dedicated their careers to their colleagues and customers.

The Morrison Bar & Oyster Room was very excited to be nominated as a finalist in two categories: Best Promotional Concept (Oyster Festival 2015) and Best Restaurant City. As well as our Operations Manager Jeffrey John, being named as one of the 13 finalists in the Rising Star category.

Safe to say, it was tough competition! Across both categories we were up against incredible venues such as Watson’s Bay Boutique Hotel, Coogee Bay Hotel, The Dolphin Hotel and Bellevue Dining. All finalists were worthy of winning their respective category, so it was an amazing honour to hear our venues name being announced as the winner of the Best Promotional Concept for our Oyster Festival 2015 concept.
