“Barrelsindia club” is his brainchild, which has become an excellent profit-generating brand in the hospitality niche in Dubai and in Manipal, India.
There are so many books, articles, resources, and guides that try to lead people towards learning something new, making them more confident and transforming their lives for the better. However, nothing really beats the real success stories of raw and real talents from across industries as they have the power to impact people deeper and ignite the fire in them to listen to their hearts and dreams and act accordingly to fulfil their goals. Abhi Shetty’s story is one such real success story of a young man who believed in all these efforts and fearlessly moved his way to the top in the hospitality sector in Dubai and Manipal, India.
“Barrels” is his brainchild, a brand that he built from scratch in an industry that presented in front of him several challenges and hurdles, but he never stopped moving, and this determination led him towards attaining a dominating position in the sector. Abhi Shetty is a mechanical engineer who worked in MNCs like TOTAL France, but his constant quest to create something of his own helped him switch to the hospitality sector, where he created Barrels, his brand. Barrelsindia club today is doing great profit-generation in Manipal, India, for being the only innovative and conceptualized club in the region. In Dubai as well, it offers people varied and incredible experiences in food and music.
He says that his native place, known for hospitality & tourism business, had triggered him to choose this industry, where he got inspired by the successes of many hospitality units. He entered the industry in 2019, but the very next year, his brand was among the many that got hit by the pandemic. The initial period was tough for them, but gradually they recovered and made great profits by the end of the year. He courageously opened his second outlet in Manipal in 2021 to change the scene of nightlife and hospitality for the better in the region.
Owner of Barrelsindia club (@abhibarrels) advises other budding talents to stay patient while starting their careers as making it in big any industry would take time; however, with continual learning, anyone can achieve their dreams, he affirms.
