December in Ghana must have been the most talked about topic, especially in the final quarter of 2019, by everyone who had been sucked into the Year of Return Bubble.
December was littered with a plethora of different events suitable for the cocktail of people that had thronged Ghana. Per the mantra, Accra doesn’t sleep, particularly during December, and we at DAME Africa definitely weren’t. As part of our blissful December activities, we joined forces with Foodie Diaries Ghana to explore a rather unique party-fest that took place in Accra.
The Polo Beach Club 2019 was unarguably the December event that raised the most eyebrows. A 10-day beach party with an entirely different theme each day? Certainly uncharted territory when it comes to the Ghanaian social scene, and we had the delightful privilege of being part of the maiden edition of this cosmopolitan party experience.
The Labadi Beach Hotel section of the La Pleasure Beach hosted the event from the 27th of December 2019 to the 5th of January 2020. Originally known as The Garden Party from 2017 to 2018, 2019’s edition metamorphosed into what is now The Polo Beach Club. The holistic nature of the event required the delivery of a larger-than-life treatment for the plan. And larger-than-life vibes did the organizers adequately deliver. The fantastic thematic events that were laid out such as Retro Sunset Party, Glow in the Dark, New Year’s Eve Party, Bohemian Party and Sax on the Beach made it hard for folks not to come back for more the next day. It was 10 days of non-stop parte after parte with fireworks and dope DJs entertaining the massive crowd with jams. Coupled with an amazing lineup of artistes like Wizkid, Fuse ODG and Joey B passing through during Fuego on the Beach which was hosted by Small god, each day surely did have a different lustre worthy of reminiscing about.
Sticking to the script, there were polo exhibition matches involving different teams from across the world, for the entertainment of attendants. It was a truly pristine event that cannot be forgotten by anyone who attended.
We surely cannot wait time see what the organizers have in store for the upcoming festive season. Polo Beach Club 2? Well, sign us up then!
