Butter Group may be a New York nightlife institution but that didn’t stop partners Richie Akiva and Ronnie Madra from temporarily moving shop to Paris and hosting multi-night takeovers at some of the city’s hottest clubs. The duo brought the vibrant (and drunk) atmosphere of 1Oak and Up&Down to the City of Lights while hosting a series of high-profile celebrities, influencers and tastemakers.

Tuesday saw The Weeknd playing host for his Starboy tour afterparty alongside his rumored new boo, Selena Gomez. Travis Scott, Daft Punk and numerous other musicians stopped by as well. The next day partiers tried to refresh themselves between shows enough to head to Tyga’s afterparty at YOYO where he did an encore performance of “Rack City.” He was joined by the model crowd, many of whom are friends with his girlfriend, Kylie Jenner – Bella Hadid, Hailey Baldwin, Joan Smalls and Lily Donaldson all made appearances.

Thursday was Travis Scott’s night to shine – he hosted a crowd that included Virgil Abloh and Public School’s Maxwell Osborne and Dao-Yi Chow. With his typical punchiness, Scott treated the crowd to hyped-up live performances of hits like “Antidote” and “Pick Up the Phone.” Lastly, Saturday night was a veritable celebrity convergence. Kendall Jenner, Cara Delevingne, Winnie Harlow, Bella Hadid, Odell Beckham Jr. and more all made their way to the pop-up to celebrate Madison Beers’ birthday. You know what they say – when in Paris…
