Paddock Club was the place to be during the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

When it comes to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix weekend, passes to the Paddock club are nothing short of gold dust. It’s where everyone wants to be.

And GQ and friends were there all weekend.

Entry is restricted to a guest list and over the weekend Yas Marina Circuit’s most exclusive stand saw the likes of our November cover stars Mashrou’ Leila, Rotimi, Lana Del Ray and Steve Harvey, among other VIPs, make an appearance in front of the GQ Middle East photo opportunity wall.

Thanks to our partners Etihad and Breitling, guests were able to enjoy some intimate live entertainment as well.

On Friday, November 29, the Paddock saw jazz supertar Gari entertain the guests with a live set, and the following night Palestinian singer Azza Zarour performed in front of a delighted crowd.

Those who made it on Sunday were lucky to catch the Dubai-based singer Layla Kardan perform after the race which saw Lewis Hamilton’s coronation as 2019 Formula One champion.

On Friday, we had also brought GQ to the terrace at Base Yas Marina for an all-out party, headlined by performers from Karrouhat to Rotimi to Mashrou’ Leila.

The next day, we managed to squeeze in a little more hpartying, gathering GQ friends including Game of Thrones’ Nathalie Emmanuel, Neyo, S1, Emily DiDonato and jazzelle, for an all-nighter at the Abu Dhabi EDITION –bouncing from the Library Bar to the Oak Room, before hitting up the Annex club.

Throughout, the Paddock club remained an-all day hub for GQ and its guests. Roll on 2020.
