            Experience The Monaco Grand Prix

            An extravagant French tradition, the Monaco Grand Prix 2020 highlights the best of the best Formula One drivers as they show off their talents in the French Riviera. Since its start in 1929, the race annually draws in thousands of visitors to Monaco to be a part of the festivities and culture that surrounds the prestigious event. From celebrities to socialites, guests gather to celebrate the start of summer and experience the excitement of motorsports by witnessing the 78 laps around the impressive Circuit de Monaco racetrack.

            The History

            Winning the Monaco Grand Prix is considered one of the highest honors in motor races alongside the Indy 500 and 24 Hours Le Mans. With the three forming the Triple Crown of Motorsport, the race continues to be one of the most popular among Formula One enthusiasts. Normally a modest city of 30,000 citizens, Monaco’s population inflates to an average of 100,000 people as spectators travel from all over the world to cheer on their favorite drivers. The over 160-mile race is driven by dozens of talented Formula One drivers who head to Monaco each May to see if they have what it takes to win the hefty prize fund.




            The VIP Guests

            With high society being an integral part of the race’s audience, the rich and famous are drawn to the event every year to wine, dine and throw parties in celebration of the world-renowned event. From movie stars to politicians, the well-known attendees can be spotted living it up alongside the rest of the lively spectators. Reminiscent of a Hollywood red carpet event, guests like Hugh Grant, Ron Howard, Bella Hadid, and Kris Jenner can be seen mixing and mingling throughout the weekend. Even Royalty like England’s Prince Harry and Monaco’s own Prince Albert have graced the grounds with their presence. Whether they’re avid racing fans or just coming to socialize and celebrate, the VIP guests help make the event ticket all the more attractive.




            The Exclusive Parties

            Aside from the race itself, there are plenty of ways to spend time enjoying the French Riviera during a Grand Prix stay in Monaco. The infamous yacht parties thrown throughout the weekend are invite-only and often feature live music from A-list DJs, free-flowing Champagne, and plenty of caviar for your palate. Olympian Nicholas Frankl hosts an opulent annual yacht event where even the most well-known socialites and celebrities aren’t always able to snag an invite. With celebrities Kim Kardashian and Kanye West having been turned down in the past, Frankl’s exclusive 120-max guest list is limited to a hand-picked crowd of notable attendees. Last year’s Billionaire Club Champagne party held on the rooftop of the Fairmont Hotel in Monte Carlo was also a sought after invite. With stunning views of the Mediterranean acting as a backdrop to the poolside event, guests got to take in the seascape while popping bottles ‘til dawn.

            The Nightlife

            Aside from the parties, event attendees can also take advantage of Monaco’s nightlife venues that get filled to the brim with partygoers during the popular travel weekend. Amber Lounge at the Le Meridien Plaza Beach Hotel is known to be a hot spot during the Grand Prix. A prime after-party location, the venue sees non-stop celebration by key players in fashion, entertainment and even European royals. La Rascasse has enough of a reputation that a part of the Grand Prix track has been named after the iconic bar. You’ll get a view of the race by day and an enviable indoor-outdoor place to party by night. If you’re looking for a day party getaway, The Fairmont Monte Carlo plays host to Nikki Beach–a pop-up pool club that overlooks a challenging bend in the race track. Cabanas and sunbeds fill the space while DJs keep the party going well into the night.

            The Monaco Grand Prix’s rich history and continuous draw of thousands of racing fans has made it one of the most important Formula One races in the world. The week’s worth of festivities leading up to the race will have attendees enjoying their travels and indulging in luxurious dining, transportation, and revelry.
