Take a look back at the coolest F1 party

For over 10 years Amber Lounge has continued to be <the> most exclusive party at Formula One. This year is no different as yet again the biggest VIPs and coolest socialites will head once more to the most fashionable destination.

Amber Lounge was created in 2003 at the Monaco GP and instantly became a fan favourite thanks to the glitz and glamour of the event. Maxi Jazz from Faithless performed in front of guests such as

Prince Albert of Monaco, Bono, The Edge, Helena Christensen, Heidi Klum, Wesley Snipes, Ronaldo, Rio Ferdinand and Roberto Carlos.

Over the next 11 years Amber Lounge welcomed superstars through their doors such as Caprice, Dannii Minogue, Elle MacPherson, George Lucas, Lionel Richie, Naomi Campbell, Victoria Silvstedt, Justin Bieber and Prince Harry to name just a few.

With so many great names passing through their famous doors, Amber Lounge has used their influence to raise money for charity. To date they’ve raised over $4 million through charity auctions and gala dinners. Over the years, Amber Lounge has raised substantial funds for various notable charities including the Elton John AIDS Foundation, Special Olympics, the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund, and the Brain and Spine Foundation. Sir Elton John said: “The Amber Fashion Show to benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation was a fantastic success.”

The spectacular Amber Lounge is returning to Abu Dhabi once again for the climactic and hotly anticipated final race on the Formula 1 Calendar this November – and they've got a new location too.
