Joan immediately hit the dance floor, dazzling guests with ‘her legs for days’ and spirited dance “moves.” And Joan wasn’t the only guest feeling frisky – up and coming formidable talent Anya Taylor Joy was seen at the bar cozying it up with a hunky brunette. Meanwhile, Jay Ellis and his Italy-based actress girlfriend Nina Senicar were reunited at the restaurant’s famed beachfront, marking a rare sighting of the famously private couple.
