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.
