Every party on Yas Island during the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

It’s going to be a wild weekend

Every party on Yas Island during the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

By now you should know that the big race is only one part of F1 weekend.

There’s loads going on off-track, from auctions, big parties, pop-up events, brunches, pool parties, concerts and more. You’re spoiled for choice once again this year.

If you’re looking for a big party then Yas Island is the place to be during the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Here are the big events you don’t want to miss.

Amber Lounge
The legendary star-studded party is back again this year with DJ Sigma as the headline DJ over the weekend. Two-day packages and VIP tables are available, and if you want to mingle with celebs and F1 drivers then this is definitely the place to be. New to 2019 is the Saturday night yacht party (it looks so good it’s ridiculous), and the VIP after party following the big race on Sunday is set to be one of the biggest parties of the year.
Prices vary. Nov 30-Dec 1. Yas Island, www.amber-lounge.com/abudhabi.

BASE
Dubai’s super-club has announced a big line-up for F1 weekend from November 29 to December 1. On Saturday November 30, multi-platinum rapper Tyga, known for his hits Taste, Juicy, Girls Have Fun and Swish will take to the stage to perform, and then bringing the party to a close on Sunday December 1 will be songwriter, producer and actor Trey Songz. You can find BASE above Cipriani on Yas Island, and you really won’t want to miss it.
Prices TBC. Nov 29-Dec 1, 11pm onwards. BASE, above Cipriani, Yas Marina, Yas Island, www.basedubai.com.

Saadiyat Beach Club
Proving that all the best Grand Prix parties aren’t just taking place on Yas Island, the fashionable beachside venue will be hosting brunches all weekend and then screening the big race live on Sunday. So, if you fancy chilling in the pool or on the cabana beds while you’re watching the big race, then get yourself over to Saadiyat Island. The brunches run from 1pm to 4pm on the Friday and Saturday, while Sunday is just one big party as the action unfolds.

W Abu Dhabi – Yas Island really is pulling out all the stops over Race Weekend.
