Sean Lyons

GM/Managing Partner

Born and raised in Chicago, Sean launched his career as a young teenager and busboy for a local restaurant, while interning in the kitchens of Michael Jordan’s One-Sixty Blue and acclaimed Boka Restaurant Group. After studying finance and management at Purdue University, Sean ultimately landed a position with the Hillstone Restaurant Group running kitchens throughout the US. With over 15 years of performance experience, Sean stepped away from the industry to seize an opportunity to travel nationally as a professional ballroom dancer. In 2018, he returned to partner with Dream Hotel Group to combine his passions of entertainment & food. During his tenure, they built several concepts which have turned into favorite destinations for locals and visitors alike.

Having a soft spot for Germantown and its neighborly atmosphere, Sean found himself frequenting Germantown Café as his go-to spot. Falling in love with their rich history and future potential, he joined the team as their newest managing partner to help evolve into the next chapter!
