Tao and Marquee to their nightlife show overseas this past weekend when they created Club Bud in London. The one-of-a-kind pop-up destination and VIP venue hosted a flurry of influencers, athletes and celebrities, who were all celebrating the United States’ Olympic medals.

Athletes and celebrities flocked to the historic Roundhouse in Camden on Saturday for a night of celebration and fun. The venue offered guests in attendance an unforgettable night with deejay Gareth Emery taking center stage.

Athlete and celebrity attendees included the likes of Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union; Mel B with her hubby, who enjoyed a night out before her big Spice Girls reunion show at the Closing Ceremonies; soccer player and gold medalist Hope Solo, who was joined by her teammates; track and field athlete Lolo Jones; speed skater and eight-time medalist Apolo Ohno; silver medalist in the Decathlon Trey Hardee; members of the U.S. Women’s Water Polo team; U.S. men’s gymnasts Sam Mikulak and John Orozco and many others.

On Sunday, Club Bud brought out Swizz Beatz, who headlined the room full of celebrating Olympians. Kobe Bryant and his teammates made the night a family affair as they partied with their wives; Carmelo and Lala Anthony kept the company of Bryant  and his wife Vanessa as both women happened to be wearing leopard print dresses. Bryant rarely left his wife’s side and while the pair refused to take photos together, they were very affectionate as he had one arm draped across her body while she danced against him.
Swizz Beatz kept the party going, playing “We Will Rock You” by Queen. He invited the U.S. men’s basketball team on stage with him. He took the energy up a notch and dropped a crowd favorite “N***** in Paris,” which got the entire basketball team dancing. Soon enough Swizz began spraying the crowd with champagne in celebration of their big win.

Rap superstar Nas joined Swizz on stage and closed out the party with a surprise performance that had the nearly 2,000 people singing and celebrating until the hours of the early morning.
