Docked

By Sean Rogasch

Looking for somewhere to enjoy an after-work drink accompanied by world-class water front views?

Docked, a great new bar and restaurant right here in Docklands should be your next stop.

Tucked in on the southern corner of the stadium concourse, the first thing I noticed upon approaching the Spanish Tapas bar and restaurant was the incredible view.

If you’re lucky enough to snag yourself a window table, as I was, you will enjoy a glass of sangria (or one of many specialty wines) with stunning views of our wonderful district all the way out to the Bolte Bridge.

Although I am not against a glass of wine at any time of day, sunset is the time you should indulge in Docked. It is simply breathtaking.

The view is one thing, but if your not fully convinced it won’t be long before the energetic, enthusiastic and all-round-lovable owner of Docked, Dominic Anthony will have you on side.

Dom has a huge presence in the restaurant. He is across what every one of his staff members is doing, yet still has time to treat you as if you’re the only person in the place.

Docked gives Docklands something that’s been missing – cool factor. It has a European summer feel and is the perfect escape as Melbourne’s cold wintery weather starts to kick in.

The intimate feel that Docked provides does mean that Friday night bookings are starting to become essential, so make sure you give them a call before you head down. Trust me, it’s well worth it.

Make sure you’re one of the first to try out this not so hidden gem, because once the footy crowd discovers it, most of Melbourne will be wanting to join in on our European summer escape.
