Jay-Z shuts down NYC park for private party

Jay Z threw a holiday ice-skating party in Bryant Park this week for his Roc Nation staff.

The rap mogul and the firm’s founders Jay Brown and Tyran “TyTy” Smith — plus artists Fabolous, Big Sean, Santigold, DJ Ross One, Haim and Sasha and Theo Spielberg of the band Wardell — were spotted at the bash at two-level Celsius bar in the Midtown park.

During the party, the adjacent rink was reserved for employees and their guests only, and the Roc Nation logo appeared on the ice.

Jay was the first to arrive, and sat at an outside table under a heat lamp. His wife Beyoncé arrived shortly afterward to join him.

Jay was later spotted clowning around and wearing a Santa Claus hat in a photo booth.
