Taphouse, nestled in the heart of Darlinghurst, is a local pub that prides itself on its unique blend of music and Cantonese cuisine.

Their mission is to curate unforgettable moments for their patrons, whether it’s a corporate event, a casual lunch, a birthday bash, or any occasion under the sun.

About the Project

Recognising the need to leverage the power of digital, Taphouse enlisted the expertise of SGD, a digital agency renowned for its proficiency in crafting websites that align with clients’ unique objectives.

They required a website that not only reflected their brand but also facilitated seamless online reservations and inquiries. The website needed to be:

  • visually appealing
  • easy to navigate
  • convenient for customers and
  • optimised for mobile devices.

Our Solution

SGD embarked on the project with an unwavering focus on Taphouse’s vision. The approach encompassed the following key steps:

  1. Discovery Phase: SGD engaged in comprehensive discussions with Taphouse to comprehend its brand ethos, target audience, and specific requirements. These insights were instrumental in shaping the project’s strategic direction.
  2. Strategic Planning: Building upon the gathered insights, SGD formulated a comprehensive strategy for website design and development. The strategy prioritised a user-centric experience, responsive design, and seamless integration of online booking functionality.
  3. Design¬†and Development: SGD’s expert development team collaborated to craft a unique website that encapsulated Taphouse’s vibrant ambience. The site featured visually appealing elements, user-friendly navigation, and responsiveness across various devices.
  4. Integration of Booking System: Recognising the significance of online bookings for Taphouse, SGD seamlessly integrated a reservation system into the website. This allowed patrons to reserve tables and private spaces or inquire about event hosting effortlessly.
  5. Content Enhancement: SGD worked closely with Taphouse to curate and optimise website content. Engaging copy and visuals were employed to evoke the atmosphere and offerings of the pub.
  6. User Testing: Before launch, SGD rigorously tested the website’s functionality, ensuring a smooth experience for visitors across different devices and browsers.
  7. Launch and Ongoing Support: After the new website was launched, SGD provided ongoing support and maintenance to guarantee optimal website performance.
