Music’s biggest awards night calls for an impressive bash to follow—and an afterparty is only complete with good eats.

Ahead of the 60th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, PEOPLE received an exclusive first look at the array of bites and cocktails guests will be choosing from at the official afterparty at the Marriott Marquis in New York City.

The menu includes a variety of cuisines inspired by a few of the Big Apple’s neighborhoods like Spanish Harlem, Chinatown, Williamsburg, and Union Square.

The Spanish Harlem station will be serving up a seafood paella loaded with clams, mussels, chicken and shrimp, along with a mojo-braised pork belly paired with sweet plantains, and an herb-roasted forest mushroom salad with cremini, button, portobello and oyster mushrooms.

For guest with a hankering for Asian cuisine, the Chinatown station will include seven dishes to choose from like sweet-and-sour chicken, chicken lemongrass potstickers, vegetable shumai, pork dumplings, Chinese chopped salad, and a salad made up of rice noodles and roasted sweet potatoes.

Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood is known for its food scene, so including its famous cuisine only makes sense. Stars can expect to be eating spicy chicken, BBQ braised short rib, homemade coleslaw, fresh sea salt potato chips, and three-cheese mac ‘n’ cheese, all of which you can find at many of the neighborhood’s local eateries.

The Union Square Market, often bustling with people, vendors and tasty food during the holiday season, has inspired a spread of quick bites. Here, hungry celebrities can find reuben sandwiches, a prosciutto and cheese bar, an ancient grain salad, rustic potato salad and a wood barrel pickle sampler.

No meal is complete without something sweet! The celebration will also have a diamond jubilee-themed dessert collection offering up treats as follows: peanut butter cake pops covered in coconut, chocolate caramel truffle pops, hazelnut wafer cones, s’mores sticks, rocky road mini cupcakes, handheld apple pie, French macaron pyramids, New York original cheesecake, and chocolate dipped strawberries.

Drinks, of course, will be flowing too, featuring signature cocktails made with Absolut Vodka. This is where you should join in while watching the show—invite everyone you know over and sip like a pop star all night long. Get the official recipes below!
