One thing I have learnt after writing hundreds of articles about hospitality venues is the instant feeling of connection you get when you meet the owners. They have a genuine passion and natural talent for making you feel at ease – as if you are part of the family. That’s true Hospitality right there!
When you meet Deb and Corey that’s the vibe you get. Special people who understand the hospitality industry and have their hearts in the right place.
Corey is no stranger to the hospitality scene. He has previously owned Nelson’s classic iconic institutions like Taylor’s Bar, Little Rock and Industry Night club in previous years. When he married Deb, who was working at 623, it was always something they dreamed of doing together.
The building is part of Nelson’s history. It was formerly a Public Trust building. With tall pillars and bank-like structure, it lends itself perfectly to a multipurpose hospitality setting. Multiple areas within this space make you feel like you are in your own area no matter the time of day. Be it a private function, or a team presentation upstairs with the big TV screen, there are the pokies for those who like to feel lucky and get lost in that atmosphere. The courtyard area is ideal to dine or drink outside in the sun.
The quality sound system delivers amazing sound with The lighting and DJ booth lets you shake off the worries of the week and dance into the evening.
The Buxton is centrally located in the heart of the city in one of Nelson’s most iconic buildings for dining/cocktails with friends or dancing the night away.
Deb is the face of the Buxton, she was born and raised in Nelson and has lived in Perth working in the hospitality scene. Her eyes light up when she talks about this new venture. It’s pretty cool to see.
“Nelson has been needing this for a very long time and now we have a great team including an investor on board, we have gone all the way and created an ultimate place to dine, drink and dance. It’s been hard work and with the Covid restrictions we had some massive challenges. It’s an adventure and we are making small tweaks as we learn what our customers are wanting.” says Deb.
The Buxton offers a relaxed yet sophisticated atmosphere and is the perfect place to meet friends, and have a drink and a bite from our all-day menu. On the weekends enjoy a boogie on the dance floor when the lights are dimmed and the disco lights light up, it’s a great place to have some fun.
“It’s a multi-purpose space where you can meet up with for friends, have a good coffee, plan your day of shopping, or feel right at home having an after-work beer. Then as the dinner crowd comes in, the night continues, the lights dim and we become a nightclub until 2am. There are Friday and Saturday night DJs, then in the garden bar we book acoustic acts to add to that laidback chill-out vibe.” says Corey.
Make a point of checking out this new place. It is enhancing the inner-city experience. The interior design is very unique and special. They enlisted a local interior designer to create the Art Deco styling – without it feeling pretentious.
In my opinion, they have nailed it and it feels good to know you are supporting local. Check out their website and social media for the latest info. There’s even a Karaoke experience on a
