The large group took over several tables right in front of TAO’s signature Buddha and Nicki stood up in the restaurant and made a toast to all of her friends, thanking them for coming to celebrate her birthday. They fueled up for the night, feasting on favorites from the kitchen and drinking Dom Perignon Rose Champagne and margaritas. Everyone sang to the birthday girl, who was wowed as a cake was brought out featuring a mini version of herself driving a pink Corvette with a license plate that said YNGMONEY, paying homage to her music label.

After dinner everyone took over a span of VIP tables on the dance floor and crowds swarmed to get close to the pop star. TAO’s bottle fairy delivered a bottle of Ace of Spades Champagne via zip line to kick off the party. The already incredible celebration jumped to the next level with the arrival of her mentors Lil Wayne and Cash Money Record founders Birdman and Slim. Nicki, who danced all night on the banquette, was surprised with a second pink cake from Gimme Some Sugar. She sipped champagne and the party lasted well past 3 am.
