The Perfect Seat
Having been based on the Port of Monaco (overlooking the Chicane) for nearly a decade, we certainly know our way around. Guests chartering through Y.CO over the Grand Prix event are granted access to our four balconies, which afford views over the Port, the yachts and of course, all the action.

Access all areas
Our concierge team is on hand 24/7 and will source last minute tickets for any party going. This year, new in our diary is the Financial Times Run To Monaco supercar rally, taking place from London to Monaco in the days leading up to the race, and culminating in a gala dinner at the inimitable Hotel de Paris on Friday (there’ll still be time to head straight onto the Amberlounge afterwards). And while we’ll make no promises, our magical concierge has been known to source the rarest of access passes, tickets to the Red Bull Energy Station. But shhh…
