Studio Paris books Lolla headliners, Shia LaBeouf hits Underground Wonder Bar dance floor, Nicki Minaj shops on Michigan Ave.

Paris Club's upstairs lounge, Studio Paris, doesn’t need to book Lollapalooza headliners to draw a VIP crowd during the annual music festival, but the popular celeb hangout did it anyway because, well, that’s what they do.

Studio Paris will feature DJ performances by Avicii August 4 and fellow Lolla headliner Kaskade August 5. Chris Kennedy (aka “Malcolm in the Middle” actor Chris Masterson) and former Fall Out Boy rocker Pete Wentz will DJ at Studio Paris August 2 and resident DJ Vice will spin there August 3.

Masterson will DJ August 3 at Hub 51's downstairs club, Sub 51, which, like Studio Paris, is owned by RJ and Jerrod Melman. DJ Adam 12 (aka She Wants Revenge guitarist Adam Bravin) will spin at Sub 51 August 2.

Filter Magazine is also getting in on the Lolla after party fun by hosting a Passion Pit DJ set August 2 at Logan Square Auditorium (check out their two-day line up here).

He hit the floor: Shia LaBeouf hung out with a small group of people at Underground Wonder Bar in River North Sunday. The “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” actor hit the dance floor and spoke with local musicians while he was there. Actor and Evanston native John Cusack was recently spotted at Underground Wonder Bar on back-to-back nights.

Chicago shopping: Rapper Nicki Minaj shopped Monday at Bloomingdale's in 900 North Michigan Shops before her show at the Chicago Theatre. “Haven't gone out & shopped for clothes in 2 yrs...” Minaj tweeted.

On the record: "I had a good meeting today with screen writer Peter Morgan discussing a film about my life." - Playboy founder and Chicago native Hugh Hefner, via Twitter. Morgan was an Academy Award nominee for his screenplays for "The Queen" and "Frost/Nixon."

Heads up: Speaking of Playboy, former Playmate of the Year Jenny McCarthy will appear Saturday at a private Ciroc Vodka party honoring Playboy at EnV.

Sightings: Paul Oakenfold DJed Friday at Public Chicago. … The New Orleans Saints' Pierre Thomas had dinner Saturday at Homestead, located above Root's Handmade Pizza and West Town Bakery & Diner. … Singer Ryan Cabrera visited Dragon Ranch Moonshine & BBQ Saturday before hitting The Underground.
