Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul hosted the Official Top Spin Charity After-Party at Tao Nightclub at the Venetian on Saturday night. Paul fueled up for the night at Tao Asian Bistro, where he dined at a table beside the restaurant’s 20-foot Floating Buddha with fellow NBA star Jerry Stackhouse, brother CJ and friends.
After dinner, they took over a VIP table on the dance floor at Tao Nightclub ,where the packed crowd welcomed the basketball star to the party. Paul then requested a special order of Lavo’s signature Oreo Zeppole, which was delivered to his table in the nightclub as he was instantly hooked after trying the dish for the first time on Friday night. Soon afterward, Carmelo Anthony and Russell Westbrook joined CP3.
Other NBA notables were also spotted partying VIP style at Tao Saturday including Greg Ogden, Nolan Smith, Damian Lillard of the Portland Trailblazers, Mike Conley Jr. of the Memphis Grizzlies and Brooklyn Nets player Alan Anderson.
Earlier that night, singer Josh Groban enjoyed dinner at Tao with friends. The group ordered miso-glazed Chilean sea bass, wasabi-crusted filet mignon, lobster wontons and loved Tao’s Phucket cocktail. After dinner, Groban was gracious enough to stop and take photos with fans before continuing his evening in the nightclub.
At Lavo Nightclub, celebrity chef Curtis Stone was spotted partying with friends including wife and actress Lindsay Price. They took in the party scene from a VIP table on the dance floor where the club put on a special champagne presentation for the group.
