Las Vegas: Construction on Grand Prix VIP spaces nears completion

November 8, 2023

The inaugural F1 race starts next week.

Spectator spaces throughout the Las Vegas Strip are nearing completion in preparation for next week's F1 race, according to a local report in the Las Vegas Review-Journal. The Formula 1 Grand Prix race will run from November 16 to November 18.

Workers have recently focused on installing fixtures and painting the 3.8-mile track. The circuit will span throughout sections of Las Vegas Boulevard and Koval Lane, as well as through Sands and Harmon avenues.

The event will kick off with an opening ceremony on November 15. All 20 F1 drivers are scheduled to attend the opening festivities, as well as various musical acts and Strip performers.

A Skybox and VIP area are also nearing completion. The custom Skybox features a two-level hospitality space and sits in the middle of the grandstands on East Harmon.

Guests in the VIP space can enjoy both food and alcoholic beverage choices against the backdrop of a Rat Pack-era vibe. The venue will serve prohibition-era cocktails as well.

In the weeks leading up to the race, prices for hotel stays have continued to decline, which is good news for F1 fans. Prices for accommodations on the Strip have fallen as much as 62% on average when compared to rates from nearly one year ago, according to the local report.

In addition to cheaper room rates, race fans can take advantage of dining options curated by world-renowned chefs. Caesars Entertainment will provide its guests with a variety of meal options from notable restaurateurs during the upcoming race weekend.

Guests will have the chance to try food from several renowned chefs, including multi-Michelin-starred chef and television personality Gordon Ramsay, Michelin-starred restaurateur Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, acclaimed chef and author Giada De Laurentiis and television personality Lisa Vanderpump.
