Last Thursday at Tacbar, one of Jamaica's premium Mexican restaurants and bars, beverage company Hennessy hosted its appreciation soirée, dubbed 'A night in Tulum'.

The evening attracted several business leaders, brand ambassadors, clients and beverage lovers.

Tacbar principal PJ Wright, too, also shared his thoughts on the event. "Hennessy wanted to create a night in Tulum for their consumers and, to say the least, it had to happen at Tacbar. With it being Reggae/Black History month it was only essential that they up the ante by adding acoustic performances to the evening," he noted.

Naturally, a night celebrating premium beverages called for classic entertainment. Trailblazing dancehall artiste Jahshii was the guest performer of the evening. The Born Fighter singer delivered a stellar acoustic performance for a classic spin on dancehall and reggae beats.
