Pullman & Mercure Melbourne Albert Park takes pole position for fun over F1 race week



Pullman & Mercure Melbourne Albert Park, the city's largest conference hotel, is taking pole position as the Australian Grand Prix nears, adding fast paced fun to its offering over the key race weekend of the season.


Celebrating the long awaited return of the Australian edition of the 2022 Formula One series, the hotel will reopen its much-loved Lizzie's Lane laneway bar, as well as installing Red Bull race car simulators in the lobby.


'Race Your Mate' race car simulators will feature in the hotel lobby of Pullman & Mercure Melbourne Albert Park, providing all racer wannabes (not just hotel guests) the opportunity to race a mate on a simualted Melbourne F1 track mimicking the track being driven by the professional F1 drivers. Lobby racers will also receive free cans of Red Bull, which they are welcome to take to the hotel bar, to add their favourite spirit. To kick off the after party, a Red Bull DJ will also feature at the hotel's Atrium Bar across the weekend.


Outside, the hotel's much loved Lizzie's Lane pop up laneway bar will also reopen across race week in partnership with Heineken. The laneway bar, just off Queens Lane behind the hotel, will come back to life to keep racegoers and enthusiasts hydrated across the major race weekend. Lizzie's Lane-goers will also go into the draw to win two nights accommodation in Sydney plus $500 spending money when they purchase a Heineken.


An urban oasis overlooking the Albert Park race circuit, the iconic Pullman & Mercure Melbourne Albert Park is the perfect place for race lovers to stay and play.
