With almost every well-known restaurant, bar, hotel, even neighborhood in the city planning their own festivities for this year’s F1 race, and nary a weekend to fit them all in, it can be tough to discern which will be worth the price of admission.

Well we’ve sifted through the invites, drawn from past experience, and come up with our own Man About MTL F1 Social Agenda, to help you get the most out of the weekend. Follow it down to the letter (stop and say hi if you do so we don’t you’re social stalking us!), cherry pick what you think will be the best, or ignore it completely and chart your own course. Just remember to take Monday off.

TW Steel Party with David Coulthard, 6-8PM @La Societe
 
@lasocietemtl
The young professional posse behind Notable are involved in a killer lineup this year, one of which is this cocktail going down at de la Montagne’s Vogue Hotel. Grand Prix legend and brand ambassador of the cool, sporty watches, Mr. Coulthard will be on hand along with a select crowd of the city’s pretty people.


Friday, June 6th

Start your engines for the evening with Le Meridien Versailles Grand Prix Opening Cocktail, 3-6PM @RIDI (1808 Sherbrooke St. W.). The rooms were recently redone in an urban chic vibe and have been sold out for months for the upcoming weekend.
 
@Le Méridien Versailles Montréal
From there it’s a few blocks walk east to The Ritz-Carlton Grand Prix Party, 7PM-2AM. THE ‘see and be’ social happening of the weekend – we’re talking black tie dress code, open Moet & Chandon bar, delectable food stations from the hotel’s world class kitchen, live music performances, special appearance from a former Grand Prix winner (no name yet!), and the first Canadian appearance of a high-performance concept car. If you only do ONE party this weekend, it has to be this one.


Grey Goose Fly Beyond, Jargo 8PM @Hotel 10 (10 Sherbrooke St.W.)
Alcohol sponsors are the rage for any F1 weekend, and GG gets in on the act with a party at the newly opened Jargo chophouse at St.Laurent/Sherbrooke.

For those who like big crowds of tourists it’s the day to take a tour on Peel and/or CrescentStreet, where both will be closed to traffic and offer a bevy of activities, fast cars to ogle, and sample freebies.
