The Collection to host exclusive Monaco Grand Prix brunch in association with McLaren London


Fans of Formula One can enjoy the Monaco Grand Prix in true VIP style with a special brunch at The Collection in South Kensington, hosted by McLaren London. On Sunday 27th May guests can sip Champagne, enjoy a lavish three course meal and watch the fast-paced action, live on giant TV screens.

 

The set menu, devised by executive chef Oded Oren, will include dishes such as Golden, candied and red beetroot salad with pecorino, Roasted leg of lamb with roasted vegetables and Tiramisu, plus the talented mixology team at The Collection has also created an extraordinary one-off cocktail, the Grand Prix Punch, especially for the brunch. A concoction of Imperial Gold Premium Vodka, Pimm’s, lemonade, ginger ale, fresh fruit and mint, it will be priced at £285, and comes in one giant glass  containing 20 servings, making it the perfect way to toast the racing event of the year.

 

The Collection’s catwalk entrance is to be transformed into Monaco’s famous circuit tunnel and with the venue’s state of art sound system playing the race at full volume, guests will truly feel as if they are trackside, with every engine rev and tyre screech heard at full throttle. For any F1 fans who missed out on a ticket to the real thing, The Collection is the closest you can get to the Monaco track, without actually being there.

 

Doors will open at 12pm, so guests can get into poll position before the race begins at 1pm and live entertainment will be provided after the race has finished. Two of McLaren’s legendary MP4-12C sports cars will also be on display along with a chassis and McLaren merchandise will be available to buy during the event.

 

Tickets start at £250 per table for a minimum of 4 people and must be pre-booked. The brunch menu is priced at £62.50 per person, which includes a complimentary glass of Champagne on arrival.
