With the return of the high-anticipated Singapore Formula 1 Grand Prix comes the world’s most exclusive after-party, Amber Lounge, which will take centre stage during the racing weekend of 1 and 2 October. This extravagant affair will see world-class acts taking the helm alongside free-flowing champagne and cocktails by award-winning bartenders. There will also be brand new ultra-exclusive suit concepts that will ensure an unforgettable experience.
The luxuriant post-race event will be held within the Fullerton Heritage precinct at The Clifford Pier in Fullerton Bay Hotel. Asides from enjoying the international entertainment, guests will be treated to panoramic views of the iconic Marina Bay. Undoubtedly, the sights and sounds of the evening’s extravaganza make it the perfect opportunity to welcome back Singapore’s nightlife.
The stellar line-up for the night includes acclaimed DJ and electronic music producer Oliver Heldens, who will be helming the decks on opening night. Dubbed as the “pioneer of the future house genre”, the 27-year-old Dutch artiste has performed at international music festivals like Ultra Music Festival, Coachella, EDC, and Lollapalooza. He is currently ranked as the World’s No. 8 DJ for the second year running.
On the second night, Swedish singer-songwriter John Martin will headline the after-party at Amber Lounge. Martin is best known for his collaboration with Swedish House Mafia and was the lead vocalist for the group’s chart toppers like “Don’t You Worry Child” and “Save The World”. Joining him is music partner Michel Zitron, a renowned record producer featured on club hits like Tiesto’s “Red Lights”. Fatman Scoop, the American rapper and DJ who has collaborated with names like Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, Pitbull and Whitney Houston will also be performing.
An Amber Lounge experience will not be complete without exclusivity, and for this year’s edition, the brand is debuting its latest suit concepts to elevate the table packages further. According to the brand, the two additions are: Noir Suite and Amber Suites. “Each Suite comprises semi-private architectural alcoves within the venue, offering prime views of performances and unlimited table service with flowing Perrier Jouet champagne and Belvedere vodka, along with special presentations of Royal Salute whisky 21, Codigo 1530’s newly launched Sherry Cask Anejo tequila, The Orientalist’s Gunpowder Gin and exquisite Nomad Caviar,” the Amber Lounge boasts. For the Noir Suite and its bespoke offerings, only one such suite is available per night and its price tag starts from S$100,000.
Apart from the spread of alcohol, delectable treats from Meathsmith and Burnt Ends Bakery can be purchased throughout the night along with custom labelled Kaluga hybrid caviar from Nomad Caviar.
The fun doesn’t just stop on land, but it continues along Singapore’s mesmerising coastline as Amber Lounge will be offering a by-invitation-only VIP yachting experience to its most esteemed guests. Onboarding the 80ft Princess Yacht in collaboration with its luxury yacht partner Boat Lagoon Yachting, guests can enjoy a sunset cruise with specially curated entertainment and refreshments as they sail down the waterfront.
Speaking more about the return of Amber Lounge to Singapore, Jeannette Tan, Managing Director of Amber Lounge Group, said: “There’s a reason why Amber Lounge has always been the highlight of the Grand Prix calendar, as it’s seen as the post-race home to Formula 1 drivers from hosting Fernando Alonso’s farewell festivities upon his retirement in 2018 to Nico Rosberg celebrating his season win in 2016 at Amber Lounge in Abu Dhabi.”
“This year in Singapore we are excited for our guests to fully experience our bold new creative direction and immersive entertainment performances featuring global talents as we launch and showcase our revamped concept for Amber Lounge,” she added.
