– Embassy statement
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 were left stunned after two Russian businessmen spent more than £130,000 during a staggering three-hour drinking session at the Embassy nightspot in Mayfair.
