Former Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky celebrated her 28th birthday in Chicago on Wednesday night.
The LXTV 1st Look host hung out at hotspot Nellcôte where she shared small plates and neopolitan style pizzas with friends.
“Their table was directly next to the DJ and Ali was saying she’s been taking DJ lessons, so she asked if she could spin a few songs,” an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
After Fedotowsky tried her hand at playing for the crowd, the group took shots of Nellcote’s reserved bourbon blend, followed by a platter of Sprinkles cupcakes.
“Ali had a hard time making a birthday wish because her friends used trick candles!” the source adds.
