Nobody could quite believe what was happening - the two clients seemed to be trying to outdo each other.
One ordered five bottles of champagne, so the next one upped it to six, then to seven, and so on.
It was incredible. The men didn't end up drinking that much of it themselves - it was mostly consumed by the lady friends they had met inside on the night.
Bar staff in Mayfair have been left stunned after two Russian businessmen spent more than £130,000 during a staggering three-hour drinking session. The two men left staff at the Embassy nightspot in Mayfair with big tips after going head-to-head to see who could accrue the larger bar tab.
There was so much alcohol - including vintage champagne - that around one-third of the bar bill ended up being poured away when the men left at 3am today.
