Grand Prix party scene: Monaco celebrates Charles Leclerc’s victory

From VIP experiences at Lilly’s Club and the Baccarat Lounge to sundowners at Sunset Festival, Monaco Life spent the weekend touring the biggest Grand Prix parties in the Principality. 

Monaco’s party scene got going on Friday 24th May at Casa Sunset, with a delicious Mexican and South American fusion lunch prepared by chefs Paola Segura and Yoni Gurman. Once the gourmet experience was over, the Sunset Festival at Le Méridien Beach Plaza began warming up for a DJ session with the world-renowned Luciano.

“I love music, art and good vibes, so this collaboration between my King Kong and Sunset fits perfectly,” the French artist told Monaco Life. 

Elsewhere in the Principality on Friday night, Rampa from Keinemusik performed at the Lilly’s Club pop-up in the Fairmont with Monaco Life’s Niki Borisova watching on from the Ultra VIP Baccarat section.
