Brian Ach

For its 60th anniversary, the Grammy Awards are making a major move: returning to New York City for the first time since 2003. And what better way to celebrate the change than with a bunch of over-the-top, star-studded parties? The week kicked off early, with stars trickling in ahead of Sunday’s ceremony to cheers to music’s biggest night and, you know, actually listen to some music. On Thursday evening, Warner Music Group hosted a blowout event at The Pool and Grille that included a performance by Cardi B and brought out Ciara, Gucci Mane, Kelly Clarkson, and more. Meanwhile, Spotify toasted the Best New Artist nominees with a downtown concert that attracted actors Jared Leto and Ansel Elgort, as well as Hailey Baldwin. Here, go inside all of the week’s biggest parties.
