Talk about the room where it happens.

Fanatics mogul Michael Rubin and Super Bowl host committee chairman Casey Wasserman hosted a private A-list lunch at Spago on Friday before the Super Bowl.

We hear that guests at the gathering included Peyton and Eli Manning, Kevin Hart, Alex Rodriguez, Shaquille O’Neal and Russell Wilson and Ciara, among others. A source told Page Six that, “Shaq was talking to Kevin Hart and Steve Aoki,” while Patriots owner “Robert Kraft sat with [rappers] Meek Mill and Lil Baby.”

The lunch has become an annual pre-Super Bowl tradition to bring together 100 top stars, athletes, execs and power brokers together.

Rubin posted a pic from the party with the caption, “Great way to kick off Super Bowl weekend! Hosted a lunch with Casey Wasserman for incredible people in sports, business, entertainment and culture. I’m surprised they let me stay!”

But two stars of the show were apparently the Manning brothers. “Everybody was talking to Peyton and Eli,” said a source. They host the hit “ManningCast,” and just extended their deal with ESPN and Disney.

Also at Rubin and Wasserman’s fête, we hear, were Hollywood bigwigs Scooter Braun, David Zaslav, Ted Sarandos, Jeff Shell, and David Geffen, as well as Eric Schmidt, Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg, Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon, Robert Smith, Gayle King, Maverick Carter, J Balvin, NFL boss Roger Goodell and Brian Rolapp.

Rams owner Stan Kroenke, Panthers owner David Tepper and countless other NFL and pro league owners were also on the scene — as well as NFL Players Association head DeMaurice Smith and NBA Players Association head Tamika Tremaglio.

Rubin is also a co-owner of the Philadelphia 76ers. His Fanatics brand is hosting a larger private bash on Saturday where Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat and Lil Baby will perform.
