The two venues located in Sydney’s The Rocks, are now under ownership of Doran’s new hospitality group Heritage House Co.

Doran has led the two venues since they launched in 2018 and 2021 respectively, and has also part-owed them alongside other partners.

“I have poured my heart and soul into The Doss House and Frank Mac’s so it’s very rewarding to be able to call these two my own,” says Doran.

“Both venues occupy spaces built in the 1840s so it’s been a real honour to repurpose these character-driven venues steeped in history into bars that can continue to be enjoyed.”

Doran’s passion for restoring and reviving heritage Sydney buildings inspired the name for her female-led hospitality group.

Heritage House Co. is expected to add more venues from The Rocks area to the portfolio in the coming year.

“I’m really proud of the success of both venues as they have established a considerable community culture in these unique heritage spaces,” continues Doran.

“They’re both in very solid positions so it’s given me time to explore some heritage sites for a new bar.”
