Grammys 2023: The Ultimate Party Guide

With the 2023 Grammy Awards a little more than a week away, invitations for the hottest pre- and post-Grammy parties and events have already begun to circulate around Los Angeles ahead of the big show at the Arena on Feb. 5.

From the annual, and coveted, Clive Davis soiree on Saturday night to Spotify’s annual best new artist showcase, the L.A. edition of Grammy Week, returning to the city in earnest for the first time since the pandemic, will have several celebratory stops for every genre. And with a show lineup that includes nominees Bad Bunny, Mary J. Blige, Brandi Carlile, Luke Combs, Steve Lacy, Lizzo, Kim Petras and Sam Smith, the 65th annual Grammy Awards are shaping up to be an exhilarating display of today’s expansive music landscape.
