Taylor Swift recently enjoyed a laid-back evening out with her circle of friends.

Last Thursday, April 5, the renowned pop sensation, currently taking a short break from her highly successful Eras Tour, dined at Barney’s Beanery, a popular Los Angeles pub, as confirmed by PEOPLE. This well-known eatery has several branches across California, with Swift being spotted at the West Hollywood location.

According to TMZ, Swift’s visit to Barney’s Beanery was to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Candid photos obtained by the outlet captured Swift comfortably seated in a booth by the window, enjoying the cozy ambiance of the venue.

TMZ further reported that Swift’s security team took care of the bill once the group had departed from the restaurant.

This isn’t the first instance where Swift has delegated the responsibility of settling the bill to her security team. Last September, while dining out in New York City with her friends Laura Dern and Zoë Kravitz, Swift’s security discreetly took care of the tab at the conclusion of their meal.

In an intriguing feature piece from New York magazine’s Vulture section, the bartender at Il Buco Alimentari recounted serving Swift, Dern, Kravitz, and Greta Gerwig on September 19. The bartender, identified as Julius, disclosed that Swift’s security guards covertly paid the bill on her behalf to prevent her friends from doing so.

“Laura Dern was prepared to foot the bill,” Julius recounted to Vulture. “But I declined, saying, ‘No need, Ms. Taylor has already taken care of it!’”

According to Julius, Swift not only settled the bill but also left a substantial tip.
