Top 10 biggest bar bills

16th April, 2013 by Andy Young

1 – Big city spender

PlayGround Bill

The record for the highest bill ever paid in a club was set in April last year by a young financier, who splashed out £200,000 on drinks on a night out in Liverpool.

Alex Hope, 23, was another who enjoyed a Midas bottle of Armand de Brignac during his expensive night. Hope added a further £80,000 to his bill as he bought other Champagnes, vodka, beer and mixers for guests including Manchester City footballers Joe Hart and Adam Johnson and Manchester United star Wayne Rooney’s wife Coleen at the PlayGround nightclub at Liverpool’s Hilton Hotel.

Hope also ordered a further 40 75cl bottles of the Champagne, which he handed out to single women in the club. The day after the party, Hope boasted on his website: “Just opened the world’s largest Ace of Spades bottle at the PlayGround. Great night! Miami Next!”

    I suggest you do some research on Sam Bernstein aka King Beatz who single handed boosted the economy in Miami Beach from November 2012 – January 2013. The biggest spender in LIV history!!
