Jessie J at the Roc Nation party

Where: Hakkasan

After heading to the Sony party the hottest BRITs couples Rita Ora and Calvin Harris and Rosie Huntington Whitely and Jason Statham hot-footed it over to Hakkasan for the Roc Nation after party. Jessie J also rocked up – having lost all of her hair, that’s right whilst the singer rocked a massive long weave for the awards themselves she was back to her cropped look for the after party. In a beaded jumpsuit she cleared the dance floor making enough room so that she could swing all of her limbs around. Sadly Beyonce, whose husband Jay Z is CEO and founder of the label didn’t stop by. We heard from a source close to the star that she literally had to dash from her (amazing) BRITs performance straight to a plane to Glasgow, where she is performing today. Sad face.

Where: The Arts Club, Mayfair 

It was all about the couples at the Sony party – we headed there after being taken to the BRITs by the fabulous Spotify. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jason Statham couldn’t get enough of each other and spent the majority of the party dancing by the DJ booth. Jason’s dancing was particularly vigorous and at one point he and Theo Hutchcraft were head banging on the dance floor while Rosie leant against the DJ booth watching and smiling. Rita Ora and Calvin Harris were very much back together and hung out with Rosie and Jason. When Pharrell arrived – with his hat of course – he went straight up to Rita to say hello, before disappearing to a private table with a bodyguard. 1D’s Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Harry Styles all arrived separately and spent the night on separate tables. Harry was mobbed by fans, but his biggest was Nicole Sherzinger who headed straight over to him and spent the whole night whispering into his ear and talking intently to him. James Corden arrived very late on and headed straight over to see Harry, and they spent the rest of the night chatting.

Where: Soho House Pop Up 

Continuing their theme from last year, Soho House hijacked a random space in London – this time underneath Waterloo bridge – and turned it into the most awesome fabulous venue for the Bacardi Universal Brits after party. Everyone kept being moved out the way for Lord’s arrival (you might say she was lording it up) and when she did arrive, she didn’t actually sit at her own table, but became NBF’s with Florence Welch at her table. Katy Perry meanwhile had her own giant private section downstairs where Grazia caught her having an emergency mending session after a wardrobe malfunction. We spotted her bent on her knees on a sofa (compromising position) with a security guard – one of three she had – looking like he was sewing up her top from behind. Random. Then she had a right old hoot with Nick Grimshaw (who doesn’t?) Then – a la James Corden and Taylor Swift last year – she took to the decks with Lord and Ellie Goulding. Ellie Goulding was lovely, telling us it was ‘one of the happiest nights of my life’. We then boogied heavily with the ever lovely Jameela Jamil.

Lily Allen at the Warner party

Where: The Ballroom At The Savoy

We always think the way to tell how good a party is, is the number of people queuing outside desperate to get in, at the Warner after party it was hundreds... Little wonder really given that Kylie Minogue played a secret set with CHIC, Lily Allen rocked up wearing a bra over her dress and Florence Welch was even there too manically dancing the night away. Whilst guests guzzled glasses of Moet and Chandon and Belvedere Vodka cocktails there was a pretty strong disco them going on with the Ballroom At The Savoy covered in twinkling lights and strippers of glitter. Peaches Geldof popped by with some mates and Noel Gallagher - ever the gentleman – was spotted giving out cigarettes to some of his fellow party goers. Many of the guests – including us – had travelled to the party by boat (a veritable booze cruise if ever there was) where Tinie Tempah was spotted getting up close and personal with a mystery brunette and Laura Mvula cut some serious shapes on the dance floor.

Almost as big as the BRIT Awards themselves are the BRITs after parties. Every year the winners, losers and general hangers on trot their way around London to the various record label bashes and lucky for us, we get to join them. Whether it be watching Kylie at the Warner music event or dancing as Bruno Mar’s DJ’d at his own after party at Chakana the night certainly inspired some sore heads this morning. Before we reach for another Berroca, here’s what went down…
