Beyoncé Knowles and Jay-Z didn’t stay out long during a recent date night in New York City – but they certainly made use of their limited time out!
Stopping by Bagatelle for about 30 minutes to celebrate rapper pal and former rival Nas’s latest album, Life Is Good, during the debut of the Moet Rose Lounge 2012 series, the new parents arrived just before midnight.
“They made their way through the packed restaurant to the VIP section,” a partygoer tells PEOPLE. “The guys chatted away and enjoyed laughs, while Beyoncé danced to [the honoree’s] forthcoming album.”
Upon leaving the 200-person party, the A-list pair exited through a side entrance.
