With an abundance of activities lined up, here are a few exciting things to expect at Yas Marina this Race Week:

Keeping the energy up following Race Week, Iris is also set to host a World Cup fan zone, showcasing the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ games from 21st November.

Fancy a trip to the glam 1920s? Jazz aficionados can head to Yas Marina’s newest resident Penelope’s from 17th November.  Born out of a love of jazz, movies, wine and pomme frites, guests will be transported to a 1920s French bistro, featuring a glitzy and one-of-a-kind French Mediterranean concept. Set to open in time for Race Week, the new restaurant concept offers guests the sweetest mix of classic French culture and old Hollywood glamour.

At Penelope’s, guests can sway the night away to the sounds of the city’s greatest live jazz performances. Spend an evening delighting in pristine views from the waterfront terrace, while sipping on jazz age-style cocktails made famous during Prohibition, and marvel at the vintage décor.

The capital’s favourite American sports bar, Stars ‘N’ Bars, will be broadcasting all the action from the track, whilst international entertainment sensation Bagatelle takes over the Star Deck. Guests can expect a jam-packed weekend of brunches, beats and of course, an unforgettable time. Marina-goers can tuck into an à la carte menu from 10:00 AM until late, every day, with a flowing beverage selection and entertainment, including live bands and DJs hitting the stage.
