This Saturday, June 4, Astra will host another After Hours event filled with live music, delicious tapas, great drinks, and all-round good vibes – this time with Caribbean flair. Local DJ Tete and DJ Patrice will be playing sweet reggae, soca, and zouk tunes on the ones and twos all night long – so dress in your Caribbean best and get ready to burn up the dancefloor.
Carnival 2022 might be over, but that does not mean we have to miss out on Caribbean music; Astra’s Caribbean Nights could prove to be a great alternative to our beloved village nights. The dress code is Caribbean Chic, so dust off your colourful dresses, skirts, shirts, and polos and prepare to dance!
Of course, Astra would not be Astra without their amazing food and drinks. Besides a great selection of cocktails, beers and wines, the restaurant will serve a wide variety of tapas during the show. Think fresh oysters, Caribbean crab cakes, lollipop chicken and grilled octopus – these are just a few of the delicious munch options while enjoying the show.
Astra will be open all day, so you can stop by before the show for a lovely dinner overlooking the lagoon and enjoy their US $19.99 lobster promo. Just make sure to make reservations as you might not be the only one with that idea.
