Dennie brings water music to the White Horse restaurant
“Amazing and memorable” is how a restaurant owner has described a new floating stage at White Horse restaurant in St George’s.
Dennie O’Connor, owner/managing director at White Horse, dreamt up the idea to feature live bands on the dock while he was spending time at Ordnance Island with his two sons and fiancee.
“I had a vision to create something unique and exciting that no restaurant has done before,” he said. “It’s a glimpse of the promising future that St George’s has ahead.
“The whole idea behind it was to continue to pump life into the town and be the heartbeat of St George’s.”
Local band Working Title performed on the dock on Saturday and more bands are lined up to perform there in the future.
“The crowd of varying ages thoroughly enjoyed the live entertainment. And the beauty of it is, the concert is for all of St George’s.
“If you want to get take out from another restaurant in St George’s and then sit off on Ordnance Island or stand on the bridge and enjoy the music and contagious energy, we are more than happy with that.
“But nothing beats the vibe of being at White Horse with a front-row seat and experiencing the whole package. We have gone as far as placing additional seating on Ordnance Island for anyone to enjoy.”
Mr O’Connor ensured that the floating platform, which was supported with funds from the Bermuda Tourism Authority, was safe.
He added: “Nobody has gone swimming yet! It is very safe and we make sure that only people who belong on the stage are on it.
“As tempting as it is to be a dance floor, we are taking baby steps to ensure we do things the proper and safe way.
“Don’t be surprised if you see mermaids swimming around with virgin cocktails next!”
