The most exclusive VIP experiences, hand-selected by Elite Traveler

FORMULA 1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

November 2-4, 2012

From November 2 to 4, the Yas Marina Circuit will host the F1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

The city’s inaugural Grand Prix was named 2009 Event of the Year by FIA, the ruling body of motor sports, setting standards high for future editions of the celebrated racing weekend. The circuit itself was designed by the world-renowned Hermann Tilke, and the venue boasts covered grandstands and a full range of pit and paddock lounges uniquely arranged along the marina waterfront. The Shams Tower is reserved for the royal family and their guests; if you don’t get an invite, opt for The Formula 1 Paddock Club, located above the pit garages on the main straight.



Amber Lounge

Sunday, November 4, from 11pm to dawn

The ultimate VIP nightlife experience follows the Grand Prix series around the world.

Attended by F1 drivers, film stars, musicians, models and more, Amber Lounge is firmly established as the hottest party in town, where luxury and style are infused with renowned Arabian hospitality. Guests at the events can expect a stunning venue, luxurious interiors and tranquil outdoor spaces synonymous with Amber Lounge parties. Below are your package options for the evening:


Seating eight, these tables are perfectly located around the dance floor, amid celebrities and VIPs. Once escorted to your table, you’ll be presented with a jeroboam of luxe champagne and served unlimited drinks all night by your dedicated waitress (about $20,395 a table).


VIP tables for eight are also located in the heart of the action or in the stunning outdoor space, depending on your preference. Champagne and unlimited drinks await you (about $12,171 a table).


A little farther from the frenzy, these eightseater tables also come complete with unlimited champagne and all other beverages, not to mention waitress and hostess service (about $7,069 a table).


These passes are a perfect option for smaller groups, allowing unrestricted access and unlimited drinks from the Amber Lounge bars. You won’t find reserved seating, but there’ll be spots not spoken for outdoors (about $883 on Friday and $1,087 on Sunday).

Exceptional one-off packages are also available upon request.
