- People from all over the world are flocking to Singapore for the Singapore Grand Prix motor race on September 16.
- But attendees come for more than just the race - they come for the wild, over-the-top parties.
- The all-weekend extravaganza at Amber Lounge is known to be the most extravagant party of the Singapore Grand Prix.
- And it's not cheap - ticket packages range from $477 to about $35,000.
If you're coming to Singapore for the Grand Prix, you're also likely going for the parties.
The weekend's wildest party can be found at Amber Lounge, a pop-up club that is only created for the Singapore Grand Prix, the Monaco Grand Prix, and the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, according to Iolande Skinner, a representative for Amber Lounge.
"Every Formula One driver has Amber Lounge on speed dial after a race," Kimi Raikkonen, a 2017 Ferrari driver, told The New York Times. "It's the only place to celebrate with friends and team members."
The Singapore location for 2018 is Temasek Reflection, Singapore Water Wall behind Millenia Walk, 1 Temasek Avenue, Singapore 039192.
Here's a look at the club's lavish all-weekend party that will cost you $10,000 just for a table.
Singapore's Grand Prix festivities kick off on the island nation in mid-September, with celebrations culminating the day of the race, September 16, 2018.
The swanky Amber Lounge, a pop-up club that only exists during the Singapore, Monaco, and Abu Dhabi Grand Prix races, is famous for hosting the wildest Grand Prix parties.
The extravagant Singapore Grand Prix event spans the entire weekend.
The festivities start on Saturday, the day before the race, with the F1 driver fashion show.
The show is a haute couture runway presentation from various international designers.
The fashion show is followed by a party that includes international DJs ...
... performance artists ...
... live musical performances by "the hottest artists from around the world ..."
... and of course, free-flowing Champagne all night long.
The closing party on Sunday is when the F1 drivers and teams come straight from the race track to the party for post-race celebrations.
All the F1 drivers have "Amber Lounge on speed dial after a race," Kimi Raikkonen, a 2017 Ferrari driver, told The New York Times. "It's the only place to celebrate with friends and team members."
The night is filled with even more live acts, DJs, and plenty more Champagne.
The Champagne really just never ends.
The cost to get into the Amber Lounge parties starts at $476 for an individual pass on Saturday, which includes an open bar (including Champagne, of course) and free seating on the terrace.
The same pass for Sunday evening's party will cost you $884.
You can also reserve a VIP table, which will cost you about $10,290 each night.
Other packages include a Jeroboam Table for $17,000. The Jeroboam table is located in a prime position where you'll reportedly be surrounded by celebrities and VIPs. The table comes with a three-liter Jeroboam bottle of Champagne and unlimited bottle service throughout the night.
The best tables, according to Amber Lounge, are the Methusalem Tables, where you can enjoy six-liter Methusalem bottles of Champagne and three-liter Jeroboam bottles of premium vodka, a personal waitress, a private pavilion on the terrace, and chauffeur service within Singapore — and that'll cost you about $23,000.
And that's not even the most expensive option — Amber Lounge doesn't even share the details of its $35,000 package for the serious high rollers.
Singapore party-goers are sure to have a Grand Prix weekend to remember.
