At Least One London Banker Is Still Living It Up
You'd think that the days of London bankers going crazy with the champagne would be a relic of a previous era but the Telegraph has a receipt for a bill at Maya, a club in London's Soho area that shows a £43,067.50 bar bill from this week. The bar bill shows that a banker bought two methuselah of Dom Perignon champagne at £9,000 each, four jeroboam of Crystal champagne costing £4,500 each, five bottles of Louis Roederer Cristal 99 champagne at £350 each, three magnums of Cristal Rose champagne at £1,900 each and four jeroboam of Belvedere Vodka for £750 each. A 15 percent service charge added another £5,617.50 to the bill. Was this some sort of bubbly last hurrah? The Telegraph's sources says the banker is a regular at the trendy club. He paid with a credit card.
