The Singapore Grand Prix weekend is back from September 15 to 17 and things are not just heating up on the tracks. Fact is, what's an F1 championship race without a proper celebration—or two—to revel in the occasion, and perhaps even rub shoulders with your favourite drivers. The after-parties are just the place for that, but there’s more savour at these central hotspots, from live entertainment to delectable canapes, all paired with free-flow bubbly, of course.

September 16 and 17, The Clifford Pier
We were first treated to Imaginoire’s unique take on F1 after-parties last year with the launch of The Box, featuring New York’s famed theatre of varieties. This year, the luxe lifestyle company is putting together a trackside party unlike any you've seen, located at The Fullerton Heritage precinct at The Clifford Pier overlooking Marina Bay.

Head here (it’s just beside Gate 6) after the night race and watch international acts such as French DJ and producer Klingande and burlesque royalty Miss Fallon Dee, who has shared the stage with the likes of Kylie Minogue and Justin Timberlake. Their performances will be complemented by a visual light show by Mi5chief Makers, as well as lip-smacking fare courtesy of The Clifford Pier. Don't forget to make room for the soup kambing and the lobster roll—and unlimited Taittinger champagne and Peroni beer.

September 15 to 17, Pan Pacific Hotel, Marina Square
LuLu (the fictional character that inspired this new night spot) has something special up her sleeve this F1 weekend—Va Va Vroom!, a series of curated events happening over three nights. Aside from the live jazz performances, drag queens and gogo dancers, there’ll be a special burlesque performance, Lulu Liquor & Lucy Lovegun, by two artists from Perth, as well as the hottest tracks via local DJ JNR (Matteblacc) who’ll be playing earworm hits until dawn.
Nourish yourself with hearty bar bites, such as truffle fries topped with a mountain of parmesan cheese, wagyu beef sliders oozing with cheddar cheese, and a charcuterie platter for the hungry, served alongside playful twists on signature cocktails. The potent Whiskey Pucker Up, for example, is a take on the classic whiskey sour, while the sweet and tangy Big Coconuts is inspired by the popular Pina Colada.

The Podium Lounge
September 15 to 17, The Ritz-Carlton
It’s been nine years since The Podium Lounge debuted in Singapore. And every year, it never fails to lure fans with its high octane after-parties attended by race legends and international and local acts. They too will be digging the fashion show and, of course, filling up on premium tipples at the pop-up island bar.
This year, former Ferrari F1 Driver Giancarlo Fisichella will be the host, while music guests include singer Macy Gray, rapper Coolio and the creator of Hed Kandi, Mark Doyle and the Fierce Angel collective. Book a VIP table and get front row seats to the performances, as well as The Nightly Fashion Circuit showcasing the works of Mauricio Alpizar and Mthemovement. You’ll also receive a bottle of Champagne Duval-Leroy and Grey Goose vodka.

Ce La Vi
September 11 to 17, Level 57, Marina Bay Sands
Why limit race season celebrations to a weekend when you can stretch it across an entire week? That's what Ce La Vi's planned series of exclusive parties, complete with a stellar music line-up and tons of activities, are about.
Don’t miss the Terrazza Martini party on Thursday, a collaboration with the popular Italian vermouth, Martini. Sip on cocktails and groove to the sounds of Havana Social Club, as well as the latest beats via club resident DJs. But keep a lookout for Williams Martini Racing driver, Felipe Massa, the night’s special guest. Celebrations will peak on Sunday with the Noon To Moon party, featuring acclaimed guest DJs Fred Everything and Lexer .

September 16 and 17, Temasek Reflection
The famed after-party attended by the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and David Beckham is back with another weekend of rump shaking and celebrity spotting. The first night will see F1 drivers and models donning their best for an exclusive fashion show, complete with live music from 19-year-old sensation Raye, who brought us the monster hit You Don’t Know Me.
The complete experience includes light bites and the Magnum Pleasure bar, where you can fulfill your ice cream dreams, as well as cocktails courtesy of Asia’s Best Bar, Manhattan. Champagne and select tipples will also flow all night long.
