Reaching A-list TikTok fame before the age of twenty is the Cinderella story of the digital age.
Davis Burleson is one of these young, hilarious personalities that skyrocketed to social media fame.
Burleson has become a darling of the New York influencer scene. His viral social media show, What’s Poppin?, boasts 1.9 million TikTok followers. His hilarious interactions interviewing strangers for the show is one of the funniest bits on the streets of Manhattan.
The social media starlet has a combined following of over 2 million, but only his closest friends attended his recent birthday party hosted at Goldbar in New York City.
Wearing a Tanner Fletcher floral suit, Burleson was the chic guest of honor. Guests danced under chandeliers and a disco ball as music by DJ Firpo filled the room with a buzz.
Guests included a myriad of influencers such as Teddy Quinlivan, Serena Shahidi, Audrey Peters, and Brooks Marks.
(Cue Daisy Buchanan saying, “I like large parties. They're so intimate. At small parties there isn’t any privacy.)
Certainly, the event was a runway for TikTok's most notable personalities. Audrey Peters wore a hot pink skirt and slinky silver top reminiscent of Paris Hilton. Griffin Maxwell Brooks also embraced pink accents, sporting a bubble gum pink coat and matching eyeshadow, paired with a lacy black crop top.
The party was sponsored by the 100% vegan restaurant Beatnic, offering attendees signature cocktails and vegan dishes, including a signature birthday burger called, “The Davis.” The lentil and pea protein specialty burger will be available until April 8th at the restaurant’s Bleeker St. location.
A truly great night would not have been complete without some cocktails, of course. Speciality drinks aptly named, “What’s the Vibe,” “Chic,” and “Dangerous Dave” balanced the vegan menu.
Guests also enjoyed the party’s Glam Booth, a black and white photo booth perfect for capturing the ultimate insta post. Finally, glittering erupting from Burleson’s birthday pinata closed the sparkly night.
Burleson’s latest exciting venture is his upcoming appearance at the Grammy Awards on April 3rd. He will be hosting the @grammys backstage stream on TikTok — make sure to tune in to find out What’s Poppin at one of the biggest award shows of the year!
