Beyoncé racks up 17k bar bill in London

Beyoncé blew £17,000 on booze at the Andaz Hotel in Liverpool Street last Sunday to celebrate finishing the London leg of her tour.

According to The Sun newspaper, the star shelled out the sum on drinks at the hotel’s Champagne bar following six nights performing at the capital’s 02 Arena.

“Beyoncé wanted to say thanks to all of the backing dancers, crew and everyone else involved with putting on the six shows,” a source told The Sun.

“Between the lot of them they managed to drink their way through more than £17,000-worth of booze in just a few hours.

“They got stuck in as they knew they had a few days off afterwards. They were still in there at closing time at 4am.”

Despite the large sum spent on drinks by Beyoncé, the bar bill appears small in comparison to previous db reports of celebrations by bankers and sports celebrities, as well as US rapper Jay-Z, who lavished US$250,000 on drinks last new year’s eve.
