Docklander - May 2013

Docklander - May 2013 Image

Live, work and play

Between living and working in Docklands, Akhil Chimnani spends most of his time in postcode 3008.

So it’s lucky the 22-year-old thinks Docklands is a beautiful place.

Akhil moved to Docklands last year in order to join his father Sanjay in business at Bob’s Steak and Chop House on Bourke St.

Born and raised in Hyderabad in India, Akhil was encouraged by his parents to study internationally after finishing high school.

He studied marketing and media at Boston’s Bentley University for four and a half years and after graduating decided Docklands would be a great place to put his skills to use.

His father has been running the restaurant in Docklands for the past three and a half years so Akhil’s first charge was to learn all there is to know about the business from the ground up.

After a few months of learning the ropes of the business and helping with marketing and social media Akhil was primed for his first project.

He’s now focusing his attention on a new concept for the restaurant called the B-Bar.

“I’ll definitely stay in Docklands for at least a few more years because this is my first project and I’m absolutely dedicated to it and want to make it work,” Akhil said.

Although he’s putting in the hard yards at work Akhil still has plenty of time to enjoy the Docklands lifestyle.

“My favourite part about Docklands is walking by the water along Harbour Esplanade,” Akhil said.

Akhil said he loved to meet friends by the water or take his 8-month-old beagle puppy for a walk along the harbour. Akhil said he also loved the convenience of living in Docklands.

“It’s just so easy to get into the city. Hop on a tram and you’re there in five minutes,” Akhil said.

An added bonus, according to Akhil, is that although Docklands is right next to the city it has a quiet and calm vibe.

“It’s a beautiful place to live and there’s so much more potential for it to grow,” Akhil said.

“I’m looking forwards to seeing what Docklands has to offer.”
