Carey has been keeping a low profile in the weeks since becoming a first-time mother and was only recently snapped out in New York as she arrived at her Manhattan apartment.

But the singer had a night off diaper duty on Thursday when she let her hair down and headed to Juliet Supperclub with two female friends, showing off her post-baby figure in a strapless brown dress as she partied until the early hours of Friday (22Jul11).

Carey wasn't the only star in the club - Black Eyed Peas rapper apl.de.ap was also spotted dining there.
