Victoria and David's close friends Gordon Ramsay and his wife Tana Ramsay, who enjoyed hiking with the Beckhams in LA over the last few weeks, were also seen leaving the venue at the end of the night.
More famous faces on the guestlist included newly-single Coldplay star Chris Martin, who has recently split from Gwyneth Paltrow.
Madonna's ex-husband Guy Ritchie and his heavily pregnant fiancée Jacqui Ainsley also made an appearance at the swanky Notting Hill venue, when Jacqui showed off her burgeoning baby bump in a fitted black lace Amelia Dress by British maternity designer Tiffany Rose.
Victoria's younger sister, Louise Adams and her father, Tony, also headed out for the occasion.
The birthday girl wore an all-black ensemble, a pair of black heels and a black coat over her shoulders for her party, which appears to have been a huge success, judging by the fits of giggles that came over the former Spice Girls as they made their way out at the end of the evening.
Emma and Melanie C were seen laughing hysterically as they sat in a car when the celebration had come to an end at around 2am.
The pair had both opted for monochrome outfits for the evening, Melanie going for a black and white minidress and Emma opting for a stylish black trouser suit with white detail.
On her actual birthday, Victoria took her "beautiful babies and wonderful husband" on a trip to the Grand Canyon - and included her social media fans, regularly tweeting and updating her Facebook page throughout the day.
"Good morning LA, it's my birthday!!!! x vb", she tweeted with a link to an Instagram video which showed Alice from Disney’s Alice in Wonderland blowing out a candle, before later tweeting an Instagram snap of her basking in the sunshine and showing her followers how she was spending her day.
