When the 2016 Met Gala wrapped, the night wasn't over for Beyoncé. As she famously sang, "we like to party"—and that's precisely what she did. 
After an outfit change—the songstress switched into a simple black tank top paired with sequin high-waisted palazzo pants—Bey hit the Big Apple for several of the night's exclusive after-parties.

She started out at Balmain and Olivier Rousteing's post-Met Gala New York Celebration hosted at Gilded Lily in the city's Meatpacking District.
A source tells E! News the Lemonade singer arrived with her bodyguard and stylist and was spotted joining her younger sister, Solange, and her husband, music video director Alan Ferguson.
At one point, she got comfortable on a couch alongside Rousteing himself while enjoying a cocktail together. 
Later, she mingled with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, who were staying close and acting really sweet toward each other, a second source noted.

Next, the Grammy winner stopped at Up and Down, a celebrity dance spot in the West Village. According to the second source, the room was packed with people, but still, Beyoncé could be spotted. 
She arrived again with her bodyguard and stylist and enjoyed the festivities for about an hour, the source shared. 
At one point in the evening, the "Drunk in Love" singer took a seat with a cocktail and sang along to the music alongside her former choreographer, Jonte' Moaning. 
While Jay Z was nowhere to be seen, Beyoncé looked like she had a fabulous night to never forget.
