If you’re looking for the ultimate party inspo, look no further than A-list celebrity parties (with fame and fortune comes lots of festivities). Case in point, Drake’s recent 33rd birthday party, complete with a slick mobster theme. The event was held at Goya Studios in Hollywood and was filled with a star-studded list of attendees. 

The rapper, singer and songwriter wanted to recreate an Italian mobster movie, so he decked out the venue with a casino section full of poker and card games, a styled police lineup photo wall from The Usual Suspects, and to top off the celebration, servers passed out McDonald’s cheeseburgers and fries while in mobster-style tuxedos. 

During the party, Drake donned a pinstriped suit and flashed diamond jewelry while dancing and chatting with his A-list celebrity friends. Stars like Adele, Kylie and Kris Jenner, Shay Mitchell, Chris Brown, Fetty Wap, Future, French Montana, Snoop Dogg and A1 were all present for the soiree.

At midnight, the guests even popped open a bottle of champagne to give a toast to the musician!

Sure, we’re suckers for a good theme, but what we loved most about this celebration were the thoughtful words of appreciation that Drake shared on his Instagram. “I’ve spent many nights over the last 4 or 5 years feeling like people did not like me or resented me for things beyond my control,” he says in the Instagram caption. “I would sometimes settle into this mindset for months at a time. Today I woke up and looked at my phone and realized how much positive energy and how many unbreakable bonds I have in my life from incredible people. All the messages and posts just reminded me that I am covered in a blanket of love and support and I should never second guess that. Thank you for a truly uplifting day. Love you all forever.”

A. Blanket. Of. Love. And. Support. 😭
