After posing for pictures and signing autographs for fans on the carpet, Smirnoff and her friends made their way inside the stylish nightclub. Once settled into their VIP table in front of the DJ booth, the group sipped hand-crafted Grey Goose cocktails.

Without missing a beat, the dancer jumped into the DJ booth with DJ Kid Jay to spin some of her own beats. Smirnoff and friends began dancing to “Shots” by LMFAO featuring Lil Jon, “The Time” by the Black Eyed Peas and “Yeah 3X” by Chris Brown, among others. The group of stars partied late into the night as DJ Kid Jay and Tabú’s sultry go-go dancers kept the crowded club on the dance floor.
