On Saturday Feb. 1, celebs blitzed the red carpet at New York Cities Espace for Maxim Magazine’s annual Super bowl party. The ski lift style photo booth was the first stop for many before they hit the dance floor to cut a rug. With at least five Patron tequila bars and an amazing laser light show the atmosphere strangely similar to a Miami summer night as beautiful scantily clad women danced seductively in and around the clubs many VIP sections.
Anticipation built as partygoers awaited the arrival of K-dot a.k.a. Kendrick Lamar. Around 1 a.m. the Grammy nominated rapper hit the stage to preform some hits from his freshman album "G.O.O.D. Kid, Mad City." Fans put their phones in the air and tried to snap picture of the Compton native as they grinded and spilled drinks on each other. After the performance women stormed the stage while Brooklyn’s own DJ Sinatra kept the party going with tunes from top acts such as: Jay-z, Beyonce, and ASAP Rocky.
At the end of the night Aqua Hydrate was the preferred beverage for guests as they snacked on ‘Wonderful Pistachios”, Flocks of people made their way home to prepare for Super bowl XLVIII.

Maxim hosted part one of the bash on Friday Jan. 3. Guests mingled as dancers danced for guests on graffiti covered platforms suspended off the dance floor. Patron one of the sponsors at the party set up multiple themed bars and prepared specialty cocktails with ginger beer and grapefruit. In the middle of the room there were Edison bulbs hanging from the ceiling encased with Patron bottles. Around 1:45am Justin Bieber made an appearance after getting denied from other Super Bowl parties earlier that night. He was escorted to a private roped off area. His body guards made sure anyone who got close to him was not allowed to take a photo. Nearby Swizz Beatz was spotted spinning at Avenue for Grey Goose's Super Bowl Party.
