He’s been hanging out in New York for a few days, and already Owen Wilson is becoming a familiar face at city hot spots – from lunching downtown at Café Habana to dining at Graydon Carter’s Waverly Inn with Sting and Lance Armstrong.
And that was just Tuesday.
On Thursday night, the recovering star made an appearance at the Gramercy Park Hotel’s swanky Rose Bar after midnight. Says an observer: “He was chilling out, having some ginger ale.”
The night before, it was a Halloween party at the home of nightclub owner Chris Barish (one of the forces behind Marquee and Martini Park lounges), where he hung out with art dealer Tony Shafrazi. Wilson went as, well, himself, looking “rested” and “radiant,” and generally charming as he chatted with guests and didn’t drink, an observer tells PEOPLE.
Later that night, the actor was spotted hitting up Bungalow 8 – and it was a packed house, with stars like Mary-Kate Olsen, James Gandolfini and members of the Police (who performed earlier at Madison Square Garden). Also there: female dancers in police uniforms, gyrating under a tent.
