R.W. Creative Group, in association with the Barbados Tourism Authority, allowed the fun to continue following the Rihanna LOUD Concert
with The OFFICIAL After Party. No time for sticking... Holetown, here WE come!CROWD:
Everyone was rocking their chic fashionable outfits (best high street brands) which they wore to the concert earlier, and stylish footwear wasn’t left out (by both ladies and gents). The venue was pretty packed, at least from what we could see from the outside, but heh, this event will be ATTENDED & HOSTED by RIHANNA! We say no more.
The After Party was held at the brand new Limegrove Lifestyle Centre in Holetown, St. James. This venue was to supposedly offer patrons the opportunity to party in, and experience the wonders of this beautiful location, along with numerous celebrities (most of which we missed or didn’t see), but in the end simply seemed like a poor choice of venue.
Everything was simply too divided, with folks upstairs, downstairs, in courtyards and most shocking... in actual stores.VIBE:
We already lost about an hour plus of partying time with Rihanna delayed concert start, so we arrived at the venue ready to party hard... and ‘Jones and Wuk up’ with the celeb herself of course! The party promised to take us through two different types of parties, all in one venue with the use of - Two separate levels for partying, Two separate courtyards, Two separate DJ's playing simultaneously, with some of the best prices and specials at the bar.
I think the only factor that contributed to the vibe was the bar specials. THANK YOU Stansfeld Scott (Wine World Inc.) for the Hpnotiq! Even Rihanna enjoyed a glass during the entire 25 minutes she stuck around for.FOOD & DRINKS:
I'm not sure I saw any sign of food, but there were bars set up pretty much through out the venue. So as as long as one didn't mind the "bar chit" system, your thirst was quenched all night long.COST/VALUE:
General Admission, Ground Floor - $40 BDS (1 Free Drink At The Bar);
Premium Admission, Upper Section - $120 BDS (Reservations Only)
Luxury VIP Ticket Holders from the LOUD Concert, admission was FREE for the Ground Floor, with an option to upgrade to the Premium Section for just $80 BDS.All in all, the After Party was more like a big lime in a shopping mall. Even with a big DJ line-up, the vibes just never took off. Perhaps if Ri Ri stuck around longer to relax and actually party it might have been a whole different outcome.
To the airport we go... we’ve got a 6:10am flight to catch. Grenada Spicemas 2k11
