Justin Bieber never misses a good party.
The 19-year-old singer made the rounds during Super Bowl weekend, sources tell E! News. The pop star visited Maxim's "Big Game Weekend," presented by Talent Resources Sports, on Friday, Jan. 31.
Around midnight, members of Bieber's security team did a sweep at Espace in New York City's Hell's Kitchen neighborhood. The musician and his entourage rolled in a little after 1 a.m. and entered through a side door. Bieber—who wore a hoodie, a hat and sunglasses—was given a large booth.
"Tons of girls started surrounding his table. Hordes of other people rushed his booth, too, craning their necks to get a look at him and holding up cell phones," a partygoer says of the chaos surrounding Bieber's arrival. "About six or seven massive bodyguards kept anyone from approaching his table without permission. They shined flashlights in people's faces who were getting too close."
Bieber chatted up several different women ("both blonds and brunettes") at the popular club. "He would point to a girl he liked and the bodyguard would let her into the booth," the partygoer reveals. "At one point, it looked like he was exchanging numbers with one of the brunettes."
Though Bieber wasn't seen drinking, "there was plenty of booze on the table." He left around 3:30 a.m.
The next night, the "All Around the World" singer hit up the 11th Annual "Leather & Laces" Super Bowl party, presented by Robert Graham and Barracuda Networks, held at the Liberty Theater in Times Square. Bieber's security team did yet another sweep around 3:00 a.m., half an hour before the singer showed up. Bieber was whisked upstairs into a VIP cabana. A source says he "seemed to be in great spirits" in spite of the "large crowd" gawking at him.
Bieber was "extremely nice to everyone and did not drink," the source says. When an attendee asked The Biebs if he'd brought a skateboard with him to block people from taking photos, he replied, "No! It's to skate!" He then asked if he could skate around the party and proceeded to zip around the space.
The "Confident" singer obliged fans who asked for pictures. Bieber left when the party ended at 5 a.m.
Bieber recently pleaded not guilty to driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license in Miami. His arraignment is scheduled for Friday, Feb. 14, though he is not required to appear in person, as the charges are misdemeanors. In an unrelated incident, Bieber has been charged with assault in connection to an alleged attack on a limo driver involving his entourage. He is scheduled to appear in court at Old City Hall on Monday, March 10. "We anticipate that this matter will be treated as a summary offense, the equivalent of a misdemeanor in the United States," his lawyer told E! News on Wednesday, Jan. 29. "Our position is that Mr. Bieber is innocent."
