European jet-setters and Hollywood stars mingled with Austin race fans at the Amber Lounge which kicked off on Friday, November 15 with a red carpet stocked with Formula 1 racers, celebrities – and even the occasional reality television star.
While photographers were not allowed inside the event (it is being held at the barely-recognizable Coppertank Event Center), rest assured that F1 glamour was on full display.
With a pretty steep price tag (individuals paid $380 a pop while tables were priced anywhere from $10,000 to $34,000), guests took full advantage of the amenities, sipping Moet & Chandon on the dance floor while DJs spun tunes well into the night.
The party will continue throughout the weekend with events culminating on Sunday after the race at Circuit of the Americas. To read about what to expect once you've entered the Amber Lounge, make sure to check out our article on the luxurious ways to celebrate F1 weekend.
