Zac Efron celebrated turning 21 with a dinner party attended by friends, family and his girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens.
The High School Musical hunk came of age on Saturday (18Oct08) and enjoyed a two hour meal at Los Angeles' Pace restaurant with pals including Disney co-stars Ashley Tisdale and Monique Coleman.
Amanda Bynes, Brittany Snow, Michelle Trachtenberg and singing sisters Aly and AJ Michalka were also in attendance at the party, according to
Efron received gifts including bottles of liquor - as he is now of legal drinking age in the U.S.
Hudgens reportedly helped plan the bash and the happy couple was seen leaving the Italian eatery hand-in-hand just before midnight before disappearing into a waiting car.
The celebrations continued at a nearby hotel, where the birthday boy hosted an afterparty with some of his guests.
