Johnnie Walker Jet Black: Newly named Johnnie Walker Circuit Lounge 2012. (And of course I’m giving out free party invites for their upcoming/infamous F1 party in this blogpost)

12 September, 2012

Vroom! Keep Walking, cos it’s that time of the year again! Some people are going out of town but mostly, everyone’s coming to town. Hotel rooms are going at (what feels like) five times the price and my friends are all discussing where’s this year’s hottest party. The race tracks are all set up and the kiasu Singaporeans like me are gearing up to take the MRT.

Formula 1 week is just around the street corner and if you are down to party like a rockstar BUT have not sorted out your party schedule yet, dude – you are one step behind. But it’s ok, because I am one step ahead of you…:)

Every year, one of the F1 parties that I am usually at is thrown in style by Johnnie Walker, the partner and supporter of the Vodafone Mercedes McLaren F1 team. Previously called Johnnie Walker Jet Black, it is now officially going by the name Johnnie Walker Circuit Lounge. Lee Jak Tim, the busy Brand Manager of Johnnie Walker, MHD Singapore, said, “We’re very excited that Singapore will be the FIRST city to launch Johnnie Walker Circuit Lounge”. I like being first. 🙂

I bet it will be extra exciting since this year’s celebrations will sweep us away into the all-new FLOWER DOME at Gardens by the Bay.

JOHNNIE WALKER CIRCUIT LOUNGE – BY INVITE ONLY
Date : Saturday and Sunday, 22nd and 23rd September 2012
Time : 9pm onwards
Venue : Gardens by the Bay (Flower Dome)
18 Marina Gardens Drive, Singapore 018953


Not only will it have a view of the race track, but I reckon it will look completely magical!

Aside from the Flower, the formula for this epic party’s series success lies in 3 other things starting with ‘F’……

FLAVOUR (LAB)

For the first time in Singapore, Johnnie Walker will introduce Flavour Lab – an experimental bar where whisky fans will get to try super special serves of Johnnie Walker, maximising their appreciation and flavour of Johnnie Walker.

Winning bartenders from the acclaimed Diageo Reserve WORLD CLASS program will also be creating memorable cocktail experiences for guests at Circuit Lounge.

I’ve tried out Flavour Lab at previous Johnnie Walker parties out-of-the-country and I’m glad they are bringing it to this party on Singapore shores. The girls went coco over coconut concoctions but since coconuts aren’t my thing, I remember trying a chocolate Johnnie Walker cocktail that was totally delicious. Johnnie Walker, please make one for me this year.

FUN INTERACTIVE PARTY EXPERIENCES

Johnnie Walker’s Circuit Lounge parties always offer a fun virtual experience that allow privileged party goers to “step inside” the glamorous world of F1. I can usually check into Facebook at the swipe of a pass, and instantly upload pictures taken via their photo booth.

FAMOUS ENTERTAINMENT LINE UP

Party tunes this year will be from yet another line-up of globally acclaimed DJs.

1) Clinton Sparks (US)
Multi-platinum producer and songwriter who has worked with music heavy weights Akon, Pitbull, Ludacris and T-Pain.

2) Disco Fries (US)
The duo behind this has been smashing series of releases, chart-topping remixes, and even been approached by every major US label. Most recently, they lent their signature sound to artistes such as Katy Perry, Britney Spears, Usher and more.

Supporting DJs Ray Ray (TWN) and DJ Dave Does (Butter Factory, AOS) will probably be tearing up the dance floor in between sips of this yummy whisky drink.

The people attending the party aren’t so bad either! There are always a bunch of familiar faces from TV, the privileged party circle and all in all a super fun crowd. At previous Johnnie Walker parties, I’ve bumped and grinded along to the beats with –
