If we didn’t add this in here, this piece would simply be incomplete. Race weekend culminates in the 15th Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, as the season is closed out right here in the capital. Stick around post-race for the Foo Fighters, who need no introduction.

La Vie en Rose at LPM

If you’re not trackside, you might as well relax in the ambiance of LPM and tuck in to its La Vie en Rose brunch. Sit down for a good few hours and enjoy everything this unique, class-filled experience has to offer. Pick from refreshing beverages, super starters, marvellous mains and dreamy desserts. And as much as we agree the food will have all your attention, don’t forget to enjoy the ambiance, the colours, and an unmistakeable LPM vibe.
