Monaco Grand Prix weekend: where to celebrate
If the heart of Monaco turns into a racetrack, the rest of the Principality becomes a giant dance floor after nightfall, one which has to be seen to be believed. All the regular establishments are in the loop for four nights straight at top speed. As the sound of birds makes Spring, discotheques make the atmosphere of the sleepless nights of the Grand Prix.
The resurrection of Jimmy’z (closed for work last season), which will be in “Pop Up” mode at the Salle des Palmiers du Sporting (because construction is not yet completed). A jewel to welcome Bruno Mars on Sunday evening. Between two concerts in Krakow and Budapest, the singer and his Uptown Funk will make a pit stop in Monaco to make the evening groovier for the benefit of the Princess Charlene Foundation.
Another amazing night of the F1: the Amber Lounge will resume service at the Méridien Beach Plaza. On Friday the 26th, a Fashion Show with a parade of the drivers (dressed by Apsley Tailors) will kick off three VIP evenings, which may be attended by the small world of motorsports, and where the drivers have a drink every Sunday night.
A pioneer of ephemeral nights is the Cedric Beach Plaza tandem. The Sunset team will be presenting this year’s “Home”, a second concept with a bar set up at Monte-Carlo Bay, open from midnight until dawn.
Pacha and Raspoutine for the first time in Monaco
Among the most popular focal points: La Brasserie, Jack’s, L’Été, La Rascasse or Stars’n’Bars on the Port Hercule are all in Grand Prix mode. Another newcomer, after Rome and Marrakech, will be the Parisian club Raspoutine, which will take up its quarters for the Grand Prix in the Gold Salon at the Fairmont Monte-Carlo. A team that wanted to “participate in a major sporting event and invite DJs who wanted to perform at the Grand Prix, with a clientele that resembles us.”
Not far away, on the roof of the Hotel Miramar, the famous nightclub Pacha, which has created beautiful nights in Ibiza, will create a Monegasque night for the first time. The mythical club celebrates its 50th anniversary and offers, with the Step by Step agency, an exclusive event surrounded by DJs.
Established way back in 2003, the Amber Lounge is an exclusive club to Formula 1 and ventures where Formula 1 events take place. The event is packed full of celebrities and VIPs as well as F1 drivers. Stars who have attended this event include Prince Harry, Bono, and Jennifer Lawrence just to name a few of them. Amber Lounge is held over three nights at the stunning Le Méridien Beach Plaza Hotel. Iconic artists perform exclusive live performances, before world renowned DJs take the party into the early hours.
