2/5/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0204_Mark-Cuban_super-bowl_tmzMark Cuban's record for throwing the most expensive Super Bowl party is like the '72 Miami Dolphins ... undefeated, and in 2016 you don't need to look beyond the menu to realize Cuban's still on top.

Mark's shindig goes down Saturday night in SFO, and here's a taste of how much it's gonna cost ... 2014's SB halftime act Red Hot Chili Peppers are headlining the bash. STK is on kitchen duty and its menu blows the seven-layer dip out of the water.

For hor d'oeuvres ... citrus Old Bay poached shrimp, candied bacon cones, tuna tartare in a soy honey emulsion and taro chips, sweet corn pudding cups and mini lump crab salads.

Chicken wings and the old fashioned burger still make appearances but in new form ... crispy buffalo chicken bites with a blue cheese mousse and sliders with caramelized onions. 

Best of all ... party's free, if you can get on the list.

2/3/2016 11:08 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0203-justin-bieber-tmz-01Justin Bieber was slinging tequila and charming ladies with his piano playing and singing. 

Monday night Bieber rolled into The Nice Guy in L.A. and was the nicest guy as he perched at the piano to sing two of his own songs and covered One Republic's "Apologize." 

If that wasn't enough love to spread to the unsuspecting patrons, Biebs looked at a table of girls and dedicated a song to the birthday girl then bought all of her friends tequila shots. 

We're told he made the rounds, asking people how they were doing as if he was the maitre d'. 

Free impromptu concerts seem to be his thing lately.

Gigi Hadid & Zayn Malik We Need Some Serious Pillow Talk, Stat!

2/3/2016 9:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0203-main-gigi-zayn-splash-01Gigi Hadid and boyfriend Zayn Malik left The Nice Guy Tuesday night looking like they wished they'd opted for Netflix and chill, instead of hitting the L.A. hot spot.

The couple looked pretty sleepy on their way out, and Gigi dropped her head on Zayn's shoulder as soon as they got in their ride.

Even former 1D-ers have dud nights sometimes.



Cuba Gooding Jr. Killin' It in NYC After O.J. Debut

2/3/2016 6:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Cuba Gooding Jr. had a public viewing party Tuesday ... but it was not to view 'The People v. O.J. Simpson' it was to view him on the streets of NYC, hilarious and very possibly wasted.

Cuba partied at Up & Down nightclub and his exit was epic. It's hard to describe, so just watch.

BTW, his show was solid ... a good depiction of what really happened. FYI, Marcia Clark's anger over O.J.'s police interview was dead on. The cops could have nailed Simpson right there, especially with the cut on his finger. The blood at the murder scene shows the killer cut his hand. Problem was ... the cops were starstruck and never pressed.


Kate Beckinsale Singled Out At Famous WeHo Club

2/1/2016 12:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0201-kate-beckinsale-the-abbey-INSTAGRAM-01Kate Beckinsale is enjoying the single life, but it doesn't look like she's in a rush to find a new man.

Kate and some friends showed up Friday night at The Abbey in West Hollywood. We're told her crew got a table in back of the famed gay club -- and she wasn't shy when people approached for pics.

Kate's been out on the town more since her estranged husband, Len Wiseman, started hanging out, very publicly, with a new chick.

Tons of celebs hit The Abbey -- Snooki and Carson Kressley showed up Saturday after shooting "The Celebrity Apprentice" ... and "Modern Family" star Sarah Hyland did Sunday Funday there.


Justin Bieber Drinking Alone at Gay Bar

2/1/2016 9:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0201-justin-bieber-instagramJustin Bieber wet his whistle, solo, in an unexpected hot spot ... a North Hollywood gay bar.

We're told Justin walked into Club Cobra on Saturday at around 9 PM with only one bodyguard and ordered a beer.

We spoke to the club's bouncer, who got a pic with JB ... he tells us he doesn't think Justin knew it was a gay bar. No one was there, except for the bartender and staff.

The bar -- which has events like Wayback Wednesdays and Forbidden Fridayz -- doesn't get hoppin' till 10:30ish on weekends ... the dancers come on at 11. Justin left around 10 PM, so it was likely a 1 OAK pre-game pit stop.

Playboy Mansion Theater Owner to Make Offer ... Mansion Could Become High-End Club

2/1/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

​​0130-playboy-tmz-getty-02The Playboy Mansion could soon have a new owner ... a guy famous in the theater biz who wants to turn Hef's place into an ultra-exclusive, members only club. 

We've learned Jeff Beacher, the brains behind Beacher's Madhouse, has met with Playboy execs about buying the 6-acre Holmby Hills estate and creating a partnership with Playboy Enterprises in which Beacher could use the Playboy name for the club.  

We're told Beacher has drawn up paperwork for a $90 million offer ... comprised of $12 mil from Beacher and the rest from partners. 

Beacher confirmed to TMZ he's serious, and the plan would be to sink $20 mil for renovations, keeping the main structure intact. He wants to build 5 bungalows for guests.

Beacher says he'll submit the offer as early as Monday.

A top Playboy exec tells TMZ they'd seriously entertain Beacher's proposal, although not necessarily the price. The property is listed for $200 mil.

The real wild card is zoning ... Holmby Hills is one of the most exclusive areas of L.A., with sprawling estates. It's unclear if Beacher and company could get a variance for a club.   


Miguel I Know How To Party ... Just Ask Rihanna

1/30/2016 11:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Miguel was a big time baller Friday night -- renting out an entire hotel for a party -- and even Rihanna couldn't help herself from performing.

The singer shut down the Summit Motel in L.A. for the event to promote his new "Wildheart" album and fittingly changed the name to the "Wildheart Motel." You can see from the vids, both Miguel and RiRi hit the stage for performances.

Miguel livestreamed the whole thing on his Periscope account so fans around the world could enjoy.

Now that's a party.

Kylie and Tyga We Still Hang

1/29/2016 6:31 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kylie Jenner and Tyga are doing their own thing separately, but there's still something there, because they were partying together Thursday night. 

K and T went to 1 OAK in WeHo together ... this on the heels of Tyga renting a home far, far away from her.

As we reported, Tyga's new pad is above the Sunset Strip ... 2 miles from 1 OAK. If Kylie chose to go home after 1 OAK, the drive's 45 minutes with no traffic.


Cam Newton Dabbin' In the Club After Crushing Cardinals

1/25/2016 6:32 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0125-cam-newton-instagram-01Cam Newton still had so much energy left after beating up on the AZ Cardinals Sunday night -- the Panthers QB hit a North Carolina nightclub to celebrate ... and even did some dabbin' in the DJ booth. 

Newton went to Label nightclub in Charlotte -- where he partied with DJ Holiday and rap superstar Juvenile (who even performed, "Back That Ass Up!!").

By the way, bar staffers tell us Panthers defensive end Charles Johnson bought shots for EVERYONE IN THE CLUB. 

In fact, the DJ made an announcement during the party --"Charles Johnson wants to buy everyone shots! So go to the bar."

We're told in the end, Johnson paid for hundreds of shots!!!!

All in all, helluva night to be a Panthers fan.
