Heineken recently hosted the exciting and most-anticipated carnival viewing party of the soca season, Heineken Rio. This viewing occasion was held at the Heineken Keg on Waterloo Road, which allowed patrons to watch the excitement of revellers dancing and enjoying themselves as they participated in the Carnival Road March.

Hundreds of patrons were able to enjoy free Heineken all night, the viewing deck, a chill/cool out zone, a mobile spa and food on sale until 8 p.m. Upon entry, persons were greeted by the hospitality of the Heineken hostesses who introduced them to the chill /cool out zone and the opportunity to receive a complimentary massage from the mobile spa after a long day from the road march.

hype antics

The party was in full swing and went past 8 p.m., as the Trinidadian DJ duo Nuphoric had the crowd dancing and enjoying themselves to the latest soca hits, Rollie Pollie by Mr Killa, Too Real by Kerwin Du Bois and Happiest Man Alive by Machel Montano.

Patrick Anthony, the energetic hype man, displayed his hype antics by interacting and dancing with the ladies, while the talented disc jockey DJ Ryan Pankar provided high-energy entertainment from his turntables with popular soca song selections. The DJ really had the crowd's adrenaline pumping when he started to play popular 90s hits of reggae and dancehall. Patrons were spotted raving to hits like Pon De River by Elephant Man and Stookie by QQ.

Heineken's Nasha Douglas said she was happy and humbled by the support at Heineken Rio.
