There have been some candidates for taking this record recently ater Tamara Ecclestone splashed out on a big night as did media personality Daniel Koh. But the record for the UK’s biggest bar bill goes to young financier Alex Hope who splashed out £200,000 on drinks at a Liverpool nightclub.

The bill included £125,000 on a Midas bottle of Armand de Brignac, plus 40 more 75cl bottles of the Champagne, which he handed out to single girls in the club.
