Formula 1®’s most glamorous race is coming up this weekend! Here’s our mini guide to looking the part in the “Millionaires’ Playground.”

Grandstand Attire

If you are going to be spending your day in the grandstands, functional attire is key. Monaco is a little more compact than other circuits but you’ll still need some comfortable shoes to get from A to B. Few grandstands at Monaco are covered, so a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen will make your time in the hot Riviera sun more comfortable. Finally, don’t forget to check the weather forecast and be prepared should rain be a possibility! Remember though, if you are planning to eat somewhere nice or go out for a few trackside drinks at night, you’ll need to be well dressed to gain entry.

Dress Like a Champion

Going to be spending time in our Champions Club at Ermanno Penthouse or La Maree Restaurant? Smart casual dress is the order of the day. In Monaco, that means a dress, skirt or pants for women and a shirt or polo shirt with jacket/blazer and trousers for men. Shorts are not recommended for men or women. In terms of footwear, men should wear closed, polished shoes and women can wear high heels, flat shoes or sandals. Leave your flip flops and trainers at home!

Trackside Yacht

Smart casual dress is also recommended for daytime viewing aboard Bacchus, our trackside yacht in Monaco, though women should remember that high heels are not permitted on board. Don’t forget to bring along a jacket for our Friday night Yacht Party, as the temperatures can fall quite rapidly once the sun goes down.

Evening Attire

Planning to hit the famous Monte Carlo Casino? After 8pm, men need to wear a jacket and tie to enter the casino. Been invited to an exclusive party? Formal invitations will state the required dress code, otherwise you should be fine in smart casual attire.
