NEW YORK: Manhattan
After a $25,000 per ticket Met Gala soiree, high flying fashionistas and Hollywood celebrities wanted to hit the parties following the yearly event. The official “unofficial” after party seemed to be at one location, Top of The Stardard (aka Boom Boom Room). Andre Balasz, there is no stopping him. Although he sold off the hotel he elected to keep the two clubs (Le Bain) so New Yorkers and Los Angelinos could have at least one rooftop fortress to hide from the “uncool” (or perhaps just un-nouveau-riche et chic).
For a few, the perhaps more conservative, they elected to rendez-vous uptown at The Mark (hotel, restaurant and residences). Some Brits couldn’t be bothered with the crazy rooftop party till 4am (not including after hours) madness. Until next year it seems…
We did hear Bradley Cooper popped in to see Rihanna, who hosted a side party at the former space known as The Darby (now closed). But the majority of the A-List attendees for the Met Gala gathered at the Boom Boom Room for what was an endless night of stars and uber attractive people shmoozing and boozing.
