It can no longer be said that nightlife in Barbados has died. In recent months, it has begun to pick back up.
One new party on the scene is Tweet: Lovers’ Paradise, hosted by Island Projects and held at Blackwood’s Screw Dock in Bridgetown.
CEO Shabarri Patrick told Bajan Vibes he was moved to start the events to bring back life to the night scene in Barbados. He said it wasn’t easy, but was going to stick with it anyway.
“It was really hard at first. Because you know you’re competing with other events. I was just hoping for the best. So far, I’m impressed with the crowd we are having,” Patrick revealed.
He said he tried his best to keep his parties affordable.
“When I’m promoting an event, I like to cater to everyone, so they can come out and enjoy themselves. I don’t up my prices. I make it reasonable for the people.
“The nightlife was becoming dead; so now the people have somewhere affordable to come out and have fun,” Patrick said.
And he has told fans to look out for bigger and better things when Crop Over begins.
“I have something special planned for Crop Over. Looking to bring in local artistes,” he promised. “So stay tuned.”
He thanked all those who have supported him thus far, including his sponsors Mount Gay, Banks and Slam FM.
Here are some scenes from last Friday night’s party.
