Experience a carnival of motorsports
The Formula One celebrations continue on Saturday with the Uber Luxe F1 Party by Chef Wolfgang Puck. For this year’s event, guests are invited to experience the sights, sounds and flavours of South America, as lively entertainment and culinary craftsmanship combine to create a vibrant carnivalesque atmosphere.
The themed garden party will take place on the lawn area adjacent to the Hotel, where guests will be treated to an extensive range of South American delicacies at live cooking stations, including lamb asado, sizzling street food dishes prepared over a traditional chapa grill, and the world-famous coxinhas. An energetic live band, samba dancers, and signature Brazilian blends from the Hotel’s resident mixologist set the scene for an exciting celebration of motorsports and Latin American culture.
Executive Chef Brian Becher commented, “To say we are beyond excited to hold our annual pre-race lawn party is an understatement; our previous Formula One events have been the talk of Bahrain, and this year will be no exception. In keeping with our commitment to bringing our guests something fresh and unique, we are looking to Peru, Patagonia and Brazil for culinary inspiration. It’s always a pleasure for our team to put together an adventurous menu and we look forward to ensuring race fans enjoy an unforgettable event.”
