London – This past weekend, TAO/MARQUEE powered nightlife destination, Club Bud, brought out Swizz Beatz, who was joined onstage not only by superstar Nas, but also by the US Men’s Basketball Team who were all celebrating their victorious Gold medal win.
Kobe and his teammates made it a family affair as they partied with their wives: Carmelo with Lala Anthony and Kobe with his wife, Vanessa. Both women happened to be wearing leopard print dresses. Kobe 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 chest/body as she danced against him.
Swizz Beatz played “We Will Rock You” by Queen as he invited the US Men’s basketball on stage with him. He then began spraying the crowd with champagne.
Rap superstar, Nas, closed out the party with a surprise performance that had the nearly 2,000 people at the party singing and celebrating until well past 3am…
First launched in 2006, Club Bud has become a staple celebratory property with athletes from Team USA and around the world. Budweiser recently announced an extension of its commitment to the U.S. Olympic Committee and Team USA through 2016. The iconic beer brand will continue to serve as the exclusive malt beverage sponsor of the USOC, with which it has enjoyed a nearly 30-year partnership.
The two-night event marked Club Bud’s highly-anticipated return to supporting Team USA athletes following successful activations in 2008 and 2010. For one weekend, Club Bud served as a one-of-a-kind pop-up destination and VIP venue hosting influencers, athletes and celebrities.
