Celebrities help Amber Lounge afterparties set new records
November 1, 2022
Pop stars, F1 drivers, models, actors and actresses graced ‘The World’s Most Exclusive Afterparty’ in Singapore.
As the 2022 edition of the Singapore Grand Prix broke its attendance records, its exclusive Amber Lounge afterparty similarly bettered its own, attracting 800 guests per night, up from 600 in previous years.
Held at The Clifford Pier for the first time, the Amber Lounge was sold out on both the Saturday and Sunday night, leaving only celebrities, superstars and select VVIPs ‘walk-in’ access to the world’s most exclusive afterparty.
Another first for Amber Lounge this year were the newly introduced Amber Suites, and an ultra-exclusive Noir Suite – just one available each night – snapped up for a matching price tag of S$100,000.
The glamorous post-race event saw international superstars such as the Black Eyed Peas (Will.I.am, Apl.d.AP and J. Rey) and Far East Movement, legendary record executive Russell Simmons, Australian pop star Emma Hewitt, and international jet-setters including Cordell Broadus (Snoop Dogg’s son) and Jaycee Chan (Jackie Chan’s son).
Guests were transported on a multi-sensorial journey, featuring exhilarating world-class entertainment including theatrical cabaret and cirque-themed escapades, together with DJ Oliver Heldens hitting the decks on Saturday night, and outstanding performances on Sunday by Swedish singer-songwriter John Martin and Michel Zitron.
The extravagant event celebrated the world’s only F1 night race by attracting former and current F1 stars including Thai-British racing driver Alex Albon and Canadian Nicholas Latifi from the Williams racing team, and Antonio Giovinazzi from the Sauber team.
Asian celebrities were also out in full force, with appearances from Filipino actress/model Julia Barretto, Filipino-British model/actress Yassi Pressman – who both have over 10 million followers on Instagram – Filipino-American actor Gerald Anderson, Filipino-British beauty queen Maggie Wilson and Malaysian multi-hyphenate Maya Karin.
Sunday night saw American rapper Fatman Scoop perform while guests enjoyed flowing Perrier Jouet Champagne along with special presentations of Royal Salute whisky, Codigo 1530’s newly launched Sherry Cask Anejo tequila, The Orientalist’s Gunpowder Gin and exquisite Nomad Caviar.
Besides the spectacular musical entertainment, Amber Lounge wowed guests with a specially curated international performance troupe comprising world-class artists that have performed in global productions such as ‘Zumanity’ by Cirque Du Soleil, Rocky Lanes from The Box NYC and the House of Dancing Water performers.
