Sam Smith knows how to have a good time while out on tour.

The Grammy-winner, 26, was spotted partying at Candibar in Boston’s Theater District on Sunday night with a small group of friends. Dressed in black Adidas track pants, a black tee, and white sneakers, the crooner was spotted “dancing and having a good time” with his pals, and smoking a cigarette outside on the sidewalk.

“I don’t believe he was drinking,” fellow club-goer Joe Coon told PEOPLE. “I don’t think people recognized him. I would have thought people would swarm him, but it didn’t happen. The people he was with were trying to prevent people from taking photos/videos.”

That same day, Flynn celebrated the 2018 New York City LGBT Pride March with costars Tommy Dorfman and Kate Walsh, who shared a group selfie on Instagram with the caption: “Just me with a coupla sexpots @tommy.dorfman @flynnagin11 happy #pride kitties!!”
