Less than a month after its own opening, the luxurious Four Seasons Hotel hosted the exclusive “you’ll never guess”-themed party bearing the official Formula 1 seal. The event attracted a roster of high-profile guests, including current and past F1 drivers, and Montreal’s mayor, artists, business leaders and celebrities.

On the hotel’s third floor, guests were treated to a black-carpet arrival and then whisked away to the city’s hottest hangout — Marcus Lounge + Bar — where a champagne cocktail reception worthy of champions awaited them.

The party then moved up to the Palais des Possibles. A ballroom experience, designed by Madame Bombance, married Montreal’s madness with Paris’ glamour and New York’s eccentricity.
