The Government advises people should not regularly drink more than the guidelines of three to four units of alcohol for men a day, and two to three units of alcohol for women a day.
The bar bill included:
- 84 bottles on Dom Perignon
- 12 bottles of Dom Perignon rose
- Several shots of 18-year-old Glenmorangie single malt whisky
- Champagne-based cocktails and bottles of Peroni lager
- It also featured soft drinks, 44 cans of Red Bull and 14 bottles of water

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.

A central London church holds its final mass for gay and lesbian Catholics this evening.
The services at Our Lady of the Assumption Church in Soho have been held fortnightly for the past six years.
Last month, the Archbishop of Westminster Vincent Nichols said the services were not consistent with the church's central teaching on sexuality.
– Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster. Speaking in January.
The moral teaching of the church is that the proper use of our sexual faculty is within a marriage, between a man and a woman, open to the procreation and nurturing of new human life.
The move has "saddened" members of the congregation and gay rights groups.
Pastoral care for gay and lesbian Catholics will continue to be offered on Sunday evenings at the Church of the Immaculate Conception on Farm Street in Mayfair.
