The stars come out at night

The regular Red Bull Grand Prix party was hotly anticipated in Singapore, and not just because it was taking place over the weekend of the first Formula 1 night race. The energy drink company knows how to throw a party and on this occasion the Café del Mar at Siloso beach on the beautiful Sentosa Island played host to the event. Guests danced until the early hours to the tunes of motor sport fan DJ Maxi Jazz from the British band Faithless… and fittingly he played its most famous track, Insomnia.

Over at the Johnnie Walker party at the Amber Lounge, Mika Häkkinen steered a speedboat along the Singapore River to help launch a new Never Drink and Drive water taxi service. Guests at the exclusive post-race party were entertained by DJ Jack.E from St Tropez, who played to Jenson Button and David Coulthard as they unwound after the race.

Dunhill makes its mark on Mayfair

The atmosphere at the opening of the new Alfred Dunhill Bourdon House members club in Mayfair was as sophisticated and stylish as one of their tailor-made designer suits.

The company, sponsor of the drivers’ club at Goodwood, has come a long way since its early days as a purveyor of fine motoring accessories. Actor Jude Law, the face of Dunhill, attended the opening and declared the beautifully restored Georgian House as being “somewhere I’d like to live”. Not surprising when you consider the house has a spa, gentleman’s barber and a restaurant overseen by ex-Ivy chef Mark Hix. Guests included actors Dougray Scott and James Purefoy, rugby star Danny Cipriani and artist Peter Blake.

Maserati’s got talent

For the GranTurismo S’s official UK debut, Maserati teamed up with Coys at the Bluebird Café in London. Coys sold three Maserati single-seaters: a 1936 Maserati 6CM, a 1948 Maserati 4CLT and a 1954 Maserati 250F which went collectively for several million pounds. I was whisked off down the Kings Road with former newspaper editor and TV personality Piers Morgan in the new GranTurismo S – on sale now with a price tag of £89,900. When I commented on its style, Piers quipped “enough about me, what do we think of the car?” Celebrities these days…
