Old Hollywood Style Meets Classic Southern California Cool at Inaugural Bing Crosby Season at Del Mar Race Track in November

DEL MAR, CALIF. – L’Auberge Del Mar will continue its tradition of being the gathering place after the races with the Fall Opening Day After Party to celebrate the inaugural Bing Crosby Season at Del Mar Race Track. 

On November 7, the hotel will celebrate the new fall race season with a party in the Living Room and Bleu Bar that combines ocean views with the hottest music by DJ Gabe Vega. The party starts at 5 p.m. and admission includes appetizer selections by talented Executive Chef Brandon Fortune. Craft beers, a signature Bourbon bar and selection of specialty drinks are available for purchase. Space is limited and tickets are available at

“We are excited to welcome the fall season at the track and look forward to creating new traditions at the hotel that celebrate its unique character,” said Bob Harter, director of marketing for L’Auberge Del Mar. “Not only will we host fall’s version of the Opening Day After Party, but the hotel will also continue to be a place to gather for great food, hand crafted cocktails and lively entertainment all race season long.”

L’Auberge Del Mar has long had strong ties with the Del Mar Race Track. In 1927, the hotel, which was known as Hotel Del Mar, was a gathering place for celebrities who came for sun, sand and Bing Crosby’s newly opened Del Mar Race Track. Today, the hotel continues to draw race goers looking for seaside luxury just steps from the track. For the past six years, L’Auberge Del Mar has been host to summer season’s biggest Opening Day After Party drawing more than 2,000 guests to a multi-level club experience that takes place throughout the hotel.
