Time to get your pretty on before wining and wukking on all kind of ships and catamarans on the Sunday. As usual the venue was a picturesque one, colorful lights gave the Porters Great House a lovely tint and the entry procedure was rather pleasant and quick (shuttle bus from the main road and then a quick ticket check to secure your armband).
Passed the Great House there was a HUGE variety of food booths: from sushi to pasta, spicy shrimp to sweet delights... even late arrivals were able to full their tummies before heading to the numerous bars offering high end liquor of all sorts.The service was great! Bartenders weren’t just dressed nicely but also had a great attitude, mixed delicious cocktails and served long drinks fast and with a smile.
Ladies FYI: the grounds were flat but soft, so yes to wedges, but no to pointy heels.
At 8pm I decided to leave the bars behind and followed most of the crowd to the stage and dancefloor area which was quite interestingly lit with some colorful spot lights. Quite a few partygoers announced “Private Ryan is on now, we gotta hit the dance floor!” Alrighty then... and what can I say, he certainly didn’t disappoint!
Large outdoor fans provided some kind of cooling effect but with all those moving bodies on the floor I can say everyone had some beads of sweat on their foreheads. But it didn’t matter because the vibe was great, even though a bit too much Dancehall was played at some point.
We all appreciate a little Kartel and a little Mavado... but some of the tunes were definitely only known by the Jamaican DJ Billy himself.
There was no stopping until midnight (an extra hour ... yay). Bliss is more of an afternoon-evening event and therefore finishes around that time.Spending $200 Bajan (US$100) on this event is definitely worth it since you are getting a tasty variety of dinner options, upscale drinks and a wicked outdoor party vibe.
