One of the notable events in Jamaica's entertainment industry, Hennessy V, returns to the craft village downtown Kingston, in November. This will be the second time that the event has been hosted at the diamond in the rough location.

According to one of the promoters, Romaine 'Luigi' Brown (Portmore Society), the craft village is a landmark thus the event benefits. "It was a challenge that we accepted to make an unorthodox event space into something magical and that's what we will be doing come November 4," he said.

"This being our 10th staging, we want to make this experience really good for our patrons by delivering the best service right across the board."

Hennessy V has lived up to the standard of the Hennessy brand's 'Never Stop, Never Settle' campaign slogan by bringing their themes to life and pushing the limits of contrasting fashion.


Best of fashion


In the spirit of the event's primary motto, Changing Entertainment One Suit at a Time, it promises to be an eclectic fusion of the best of fashion, dÈcor and music served up with premium liquor and food (catered exclusively by Triple Century Sports Bar). Following previous instalments, the event has been dubbed a lady's playground within a gentleman's event.

"The unique concept is giving patrons, both males and females, the opportunity to show their creativity," Brown said. This time we revisited all the themes used before and decided to go with full black. But, having always followed an edgy direction, this year's theme is Onyx, like the gemstone."

Hennessy V is also introducing Hennessy Black to their Onyx bar list for the first time around. The promoters are also known to give outfit ideas for the specific themes.

Some of the highlights surround a special guest disc jockey from the US Virgin Islands alongside DJs Mario, Bishop Escobar and Richie Ras.

The event is also known for its charitable efforts, which included raising funds towards the medical treatment of a 12-year-old who struggled with promyelocytic leukemia.

Already the elevated lifestyle lounge with the highest priced cabanas have been sold out.
