One night at the EDITION that makes a case to become tradition

We’re not the kind to brag a whole lot, but we had a rather good Abu Dhabi Formula 1 weekend, thank you. There was, of course, the chance to see our December/January cover star, Lewis Hamilton, cap-off a sixth world championship with a wire-to-wire win on the Yas Marina Circuit. Before that, we brought GQ to the capital for an all-out party, headlined by performers from Karrouhat to Rotimi to (our electric November cover stars) Mashrou’ Leila.

But between those highs, we couldn’t help but squeeze in a little more hedonism. On Saturday night, we gathered together 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.

And as you can see, it feels more or less inevitable that this’ll become an annual tradition. Count you in for 2020, then?
