Amber Lounge

Amber Lounge (Le Méridien Beach Plaza Hotel, Monaco) – those who happen to be in the French Riviera in late May (during the weekend of the Monaco Grand Prix) and are willing to spend money may consider attending its parties (held that Friday, Saturday & Sunday night), as well as its star-studded charity fashion show held that (late) Friday afternoon.

Organized by Sonia Irvine (sister of veteran Formula 1 auto racer Eddie Irvine), Amber Lounge’s events attract Hollywood celebrities, millionaires who may or may no reside in Monaco, top fashion models as well as participating Monaco Grand Prix racers and their significant others. Monaco’s Price Albert is a regular presence there, as well as other European royalty. In recent times, Amber Lounge rents a yacht that it docks at Monaco’s harbor during the Grand Prix, so that its VIP guests can see the race from a good vantage point. See its website for more details:
