The New York premiere may have kicked off at 6 p.m., but the cast and crew of Sex and the City: The Movie partied ’til three in the morning, with two after parties!

After Sex‘s big New York homecoming at the Radio City Music Hall and an after party at the Museum of Modern Art, the film’s inner circle – including Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, Jason Lewis and director Michael Patrick King – celebrated the night away at an exclusive after-after party at The Carlyle hotel.

Around midnight, with husband Matthew Broderick, Parker escaped the MOMA, arriving at the hotel’s legendary Bemelmans Bar, which she requested (she had her honeymoon at The Carlyle in 1997). They intimately enjoyed cocktails and mini-burgers before the arrival of some of Parker’s closest friends and colleagues.

Nixon, who arrived at 1 a.m., held hands with her partner Christine Marinoni all night, while sipping the night’s signature drink, The Bradshaw (check out the recipe here).

Other SATC staples included Mario Cantone, costume designer Patricia Field and Willie Garson – who seemed shocked by the size of the crowd, announcing, “I thought this was supposed to be a quiet and intimate little get together!” But he eagerly joined the party goers as they danced to jazz and old standards played by the Loston Harris Trio.

Despite being the only ones left in the room at 3 a.m., Nixon, King and producer John Melfi chatted away. According to a source, King, who wrote and directed the big screen reunion, looked like a kid in a candy store, saying, “This was THE party of the night!”
