"Beyoncé looked amazing and was having a great time with her friends," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "She was very laid back, smiling and in a great mood."
Off the dance floor, Beyoncé, who gave birth to daughter Blue Ivy Carter just three and a half months ago, chatted and shared some laughs with her pals while sipping on vodka drinks at a corner VIP booth. At one point, Oscar winner Cuba Gooding Jr. came to the table to say hello. The girls night out wrapped up around 3 a.m.
