The Podium Lounge is the A-List after-party hosted on the rooftop of Yas Viceroy Hotel over the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Weekend on Thursday 20, Friday 21, Saturday 22 & Sunday 23 November from 10pm – 5am.
In 2013 The Podium Lounge Abu Dhabi was the most sought after party venue and played host to the Red Bull Racing team, including Sebastian Vettel who was celebrating his 4th consecutive World Championship and Red Bull’s One-Two Win at The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix last year.
Having hosted sell-out, celebrity packed events in Monaco, Melbourne and Singapore at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia since 2009, the high octane Podium Lounge venue by the glittering pool of The Yas Viceroy will undergo a dramatic transformation into a glamorous ultra lounge offering a magical party experience with the racing community for up to 1,000 guests per night.
Recognized as the ultimate season finale party for the racing community, situated within the Yas Marina Circuit and directly across from The Paddock Club, The Podium Lounge hosts Formula 1 drivers, teams, Royalty, celebrities, ambassadors, supermodels and the who’s who of the UAE’s jet-setting party elite each year. Last year’s Podium Lounge Abu Dhabi welcomed race legends Damon Hill, David Coulthard, Rubens Barrichello, Eddie Jordan, Gil de Ferran (IndyCar Indianapolis 500 Champion) and other personalities including Sky Sports F1 presenters Simon Lazenby and Natalie Pinkham, Chairman of Sky Nicholas Ferguson (CBE), Princess Deborah Murrat and HI&RH Archduchess Eleonore of The House of Habsburg.
