It was a mellow, carefree Friday night for Zac Efron
star kept a low profile at West Hollywood hotspot Bootsy Bellows, where he hung out with pals in the VIP room at a table in the way back corner of the club.
Clad all in black, with a beanie covering his head, the star sipped on vodka cocktails and danced to Drake's "Started from the Bottom."
Efron only left the table once, but when he did, he had people in front of him and behind him, helping him move through the crowd. The actor, whose table was blocked off to other club-goers by his friends, stayed until almost closing time.
