Together, they have restored the popular local pub, developing a strong rapport with the local community. They live above the Reverence Hotel which gives them a unique perspective on Footscray. Matt and Melanie also bring bands from all across Melbourne to the area and with taco Tuesdays and a popular new menu they have brought Mexican cuisine to the West.

Melanie and Matt love their new home and have many stories to share about their new customers, the music they love and the reasons they chose Footscray!
