On Saturday, April 16, Astra will be hosting another After Hours event filled with live music, delicious tapas, great drinks and all-round good vibes. The local Good Energy Band will provide sweet tunes from 10:00pm until 1:00am. Afterwards, DJ BB Bad will keep the party going until 3:00am. We cannot wait!
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 be serving a wide variety of tapas during the show. Think fresh oysters, Caribbean crab cakes, lollipop chicken, grilled octopus – these are just a few of the delicious munch options while enjoying the show.
But Astra will be open all day, so you can stop by for a lovely dinner overlooking the lagoon before the show. Just make sure to make a reservation as you might not be the only one with that idea.
Sit back and read all about the performing artistes below.
