Belt up. The Peak has front seats to this year’s F1 Singapore Night Race – and we’re taking you with us to the paddock, our exclusive interviews, and the parties. Check back on this site, our Facebook and Instagram as stories will be going up, hot off the press, beginning this Thursday. Until then, make sure you tie up your plans if you haven’t already – here are some options to consider.
Ce La Vi: Sky High Brunch
Don’t let your engines get off to a cold start – kick off the afternoon of the 19th with a pool party with the view at Ce La Vi’s Sky High Brunch. Free flow Perrier-Jouet champagne? Check. Fuelling up for the night with oysters, foie gras and caviar? Knock yourself out; it’s a buffet. There’s even a “no kids” policy, so something tells us the roof may be coming down before the race even begins.
EXCLUSIVE: Readers of The Peak’s print magazine are entitled to special VIP Table rates. For more details, drop us an e-mail with your contact information.
The Podium Lounge after-party at Ritz-Carlton
It would be a waste to let the race’s excitement peter out – bring your guests down The Podium Lounge’s after-party, slated to rock the foundations of Ritz-Carlton’s Grand Ballroom on all three race nights. Crowds of 2,500 are expected. A plethora of musical talent has been roped in for the event (see picture – and yes, that’s Hodor, who’s actually a DJ) – and the 25-seater VIP table that comes with a $28,888 price tag nets a trolley full of booze and a meet-and-greet with the artistes and hosts. For VIP tables and inquiries, email this address.
For those who want to be close to the action over drinks and a full meal, consider these options.
Me @ OUE
Enthusiasts will know how much the tables can turn during a straight stretch in the track – it’s where the overtaking happens. Me@OUE affords guests a vantage point of the Esplanade bridge (pictured) so they can hold a cocktail in one hand and punch the air with the other.
If beer’s more your deal, try out LeVeL33, perched (you guessed it) 33 levels up in MBFC Tower 1, with sweeping views of the bay area. Yes, there will be large television screens to follow the race, and more than enough craft beers to spoil you silly while you’re at it.
F1 Drivers Fashion Show
The Grand Prix isn’t all about edgy cars and revving engines as one might think. The F1 Drivers Fashion Show is back again at the Amber Lounge Singapore for two nights – September 19 & 20. Drivers such as Ferrari’s Esteban Gutierrez, McLaren’s Stoffel Vandoorne, and many others will walk down the runway. You’ve seen them in polymer racing suits on the road. Now see them adorned in couture with the sophisticated work of British designer, Ted Baker. Strutting with them are international models sporting up-and-coming local label, Chi Chi von Tang.
In addition to this star-studded event are live performances by international DJs and Black Eyed Peas’ Apl.de.ap. Experience the F1 Grand Prix in a new light with Amber Lounge Singapore, and prepare for two nights of fun, fashion and partying till the sun comes up.
