Beach Polo at Hotel del Coronado is the social event of the summer season. Those who enjoy fine dining, world-class polo in a party atmosphere are in for a special treat. The festivities begin on Friday, September 7th as the 10,000 square foot VIP Tent on the beach is transformed into a giant cocktail lounge. The Friday night Silver tickets this year include two complimentary drinks and a souvenir Beach Polo hat. As in the past the front row is designated as Millionaire’s Row with sixteen luxurious boxes featuring white leather furniture with seating for ten. To set a festive mood on Friday, men are invited to wear white tuxedo jackets, black tie and colorful surfer shorts.

On Saturday and Sunday (September 8 and 9) guests can choose a box in Millionaire’s Row, a Gold VIP table or Silver tickets. New to Millionaire’s Row this year is the inclusion of twenty complimentary drink tickets. Gold VIP seating is on the front row of the second terrace in the VIP Tent. Ticket holders are treated to a formal three-course luncheon and wine provided by Hotel del Coronado. Each day Grayse will have informal modeling during the polo and luncheon. Millionaire’s Row boxes and Silver tickets will have the option of purchasing an array of culinary delights from Hotel del Coronado.

On the top row of the VIP Tent, luxury shopping takes precedent. Attendees will be able to purchase anything from a new Porsche to a Silver Seas Yacht or a new wardrobe at Grayse and Bradys.

If polo isn’t enough there is also a sand sculpture contest, hat contest, golf cart polo, Porsche Million Dollar Road Rally and much more.

Ticket prices range from $100 to $125 for Silver tickets (two drinks included), Gold tickets are $250 or $2500 for a table of ten (three-course lunch and wine) and Millionaire’s Row box seats $200 or $2000 (20 drink tickets).
