The Abu Dhabi Formula 1 Grand Prix weekend is almost here and if you’re looking for the ideal way to spend it, then Iris Yas Island has the answer. The brilliant Yas Marina venue has a fresh new look and an exciting line-up of events, from live perfromances by world-class acts to a very special edition of Hidden brunch.

It all kicks off on Thursday November 28, when Swiss DJ Andrea Oliva will be spinning the decks and getting the weekend started in style. On Friday and Saturday prepare for an unforgettable day with the return of Hidden brunch between 1pm and 4pm, plus a huge after-brunch party from 4pm onwards.

The brunch is priced at Dhs699 with unlimited house beverages, or ladies can enjoy an exclusive prosecco package for Dhs499. On Sunday December 1, the brunch will run from 2pm to 5pm and costs Dhs599 for the ladies’ prosecco package and Dhs799 for premium house drinks.

Set on the huge outdoor terrace, you’ll have three bars to choose from while you indulge on an international feast. Get ready for an epic sunset set from Bahramji and Medusa Oydessy, who will be warming the crowd up before DJ Nu takes the stage at 11pm.

On Saturday night, you can expect big tunes from Valeron after 11pm followed by Hot Creations DJ, Richy Ahmed, taking you late into the night. If that’s not enough Iris will also be hosting ARTBAT on Sunday December 1 from 11pm onwards.

To get into these exclusive after-parties, the price on Thursday will be free for ladies and Dhs200 for guys including two drinks. During Friday’s sunset session the price will be Dhs100 including one drink for girls and Dhs250 for guys including two drinks.

The late night parties on Friday, Saturday and Sunday will cost Dhs250 for guys with two drinks and Dhs200 for ladies with two drinks. If you’re headed to the brunch though, you can enter stay for the after-party at no extra cost.
