Drake was recently in New York for his two-night stand at the Apollo Theater, and it looks as though the Toronto-based rapper made the most of his time in The Big Apple by staying at a $75,000-a-night hotel suite.

The rapper delighted fans with his setlist at the Apollo, taking those in attendance on a journey through his studio albums. Although they weren’t delivered chronologically, Drake performed 42 different songs.

Rather than travel from club to club, Page Six reports the rapper travelled with his entourage from one private party to another.

After one of the Apollo shows, Drake rented out the Upper East Side members club Casa Cruz for a party that had just his friends and family in attendance.

He pulled out all the stops with food, drink and gifts to thank them all for their unwavering support over the years,’ an insider told Page Six. “It was extremely exclusive.”

After the other show he and a smaller group dined at the Cucina Alba in Chelsea.

Drake’s lavish hotel suite

During his time in New York Drake stayed at the Mark Hotel, coughing up $75,000 a night for one of the hotel’s 10,000 square foot penthouses.

The Mark’s Hotel listing for the room says it has “more than 10,000 square feet including 2,500 square feet of rooftop terrace overlooking Central Park, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and beyond.”

Designed by French interior designer Jacques Grange, the room includes five bedrooms, six bathrooms, four fireplaces, two powder rooms, two wet bars, a steam room, a dining room that can accomodate up to 24 people, a full kitchen, a grand piano and a balcony.

If that wasn’t enough, Drake also rented rooms for his entourage at the hotel. Sam Smith was also staying at the hotel for his appearance on ‘Saturday Night Live’, but he reportedly had to deal with fans and paparazzi every time he went out due to Drake’s presence.

Drake also spun tunes

To round out his stay in New York, Drake headed to the private club Ned on Thursday and showed off his DJing skills in the Magic Room atop a baby grand piano.

The party, which was hosted by Richie Akiva, began at midnight and continued into 3 a.m.
