How Julian Tobias went from selling real estate to running the hottest clubs

Billionaire pub baron Justin Hemmes has long been known as Sydney’s most eligible bachelor.

But there’s a new kid in town hot on the heels of the Merivale boss.

Meet Julian Tobias – the handsome 43-year-old socialite from the eastern suburbs who is rising to the ranks of Sydney’s barzars and threatening the likes of Hemmes and Playboy headquarters Stu Laundy.

Tobias made his first foray into nightlife nearly two decades ago when he founded The Club in Potts Point.

He later founded Ssh Room, a bar so exclusive it can only be accessed with a password on the door.

In 2010, Tobias and business partner Adam Abrams opened The Island, Australia’s first floating beach club on Sydney Harbour.

A year later, the two dove into the beverage business, launching the now-popular C Coconut Water brand.

Five years later, Tobias and Adams found even more success when they founded the cleaning company Whiz Technologies.

The company won the backing of supporters from the wealthy list, including Goldman Sachs Australia boss Simon Rothery, Tony Gandel, Alex Waislitz’s Thorney Investment Group and former KPMG executive Jon Adgemis.

Whiz Technologies is now aiming for an IPO in early 2023, which if successful should catapult Tobias into a new financial stratosphere.

More recently, Tobias has once again expanded his venue empire by unveiling the Potts Point Speakeasy Sussudio.

The venue opened during Fashion Week in April and has already become the ultimate destination for Sydney’s fashion elite.

Named after the Phil Collins hit of the same name, the Sussudio boasts a “secret club within the club” and has earned a reputation for being one of the hardest velvet ropes to cross due to its strictly enforced door policy.

Tobias, who recently spent $5.5million on a Bondi Beach penthouse, told Daily Mail Australia he felt “recharged” since Sussudio’s launch.

“I would say Sussudio has really reignited my passion for nightlife… being able to create a space I’m happy with and being able to play the kind of music I love.” “, he said.

He plans to unveil more venues in the coming months, including a cantina-style Mexican restaurant opening on Darlinghurst Road.

After that, he will open a Tel Aviv-inspired supper club and another restaurant-brasserie concept similar to his popular Bedouin restaurant in Double Bay.

Meanwhile, Tobias is single and ready to hook up, having recently split from his stunning model girlfriend, Charlotte Coquelin.

He confirmed to Daily Mail Australia that he is still on the market.

Tobias stayed humble when asked how he felt about being named Sydney’s most eligible bachelor.

“I’m not entirely sure I’m living up to that,” he said with a smile.

‘But it’s a compliment. I think on a rainy day I’ll take it.’
