For the second year in a row, Rolls Royce kicked off Grand Prix week with elegance, class, and the perfect party to loosen us up for the week ahead. The festivities started on a Tuesday (I guess Grand Prix only gives us Mondays off?), and we got Boozy Tuesday to a whole other level.

Grand Prix in Montreal is always the number one party week of the year. The fun isn’t confined to simple weekend parties, but instead, the city goes wild all week long. Rolls Royce probably had one of the classier parties, but it doesn’t mean it wasn’t happening. DJ Toddy Flores was making sure the party was upbeat but chill.

The Montreal dealership was full of customers, media, and invited guests. Brahm Mauer‘s team was manning the drinks and boy were we glad to see them. Our favourite cocktails were the Thank You Berry Much (and we creepily/accidentally/dorkily told the bartender as much), with vodka, strawberry purée, lime juice, and soda, and the Main Squeeze, with vodka, simple syrup, grapefruit juice, grapefruit, cherry bitters, and soda. Brahm Mauer is always our favourite bar service company.

The food being passed around was incredibly delicious. We had to know who was catering, and when we found out, we were pleasantly surprised. The tasty morsels were provided by Kosher catering company La Marguerite Traiteur. The smoked meat station was to-die-for, the soft pretzels were addictive, and the bites being passed around were heavenly. We especially loved the Asian-style beef, the arancini, and the crab rolls.

No party is quite as impressive without a sushi station, and Rolls Royce did not disappoint. The sushi rolls were great, the tuna tataki was fresh and delicious, and we particularly liked a beet purée soup that was calling our name.

Rolls Royce threw this party not only to feed their guests, but also to make a few announcements. They will be building a new bigger and better dealership and they unveiled the glamorous plans to us. In addition, they announced that they will be carrying the new Rolls Royce SUV that is said to launch within the next year.

And the pièce de résistance? They unveiled their new electric car, Karma, and it sure was a feast for the eyes. The luxury electric car is gorgeous, sleek, and definitely on our wish list (a girl can dream, right?).

Rolls Royce expertly launched Grand Prix in Montreal, and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for the rest of the week.
