Half Moon

Colonial Leisure Group
Church Street, Brighton VIC


The Directitude team engaged with this project to refresh and revive this classic watering hole, in which the team engaged as a builder for the fit out.  As this beloved local spot has been pouring beers since the 60’s on Brighton’s bustling Church Street, the venue was due for a stylish yet classic upgrade. In which the DM fit out ensured for the preservation of tradition while creating an exciting chapter for generations to come.
