U.S. Gambler Paid $190,000 On World’s Most Expensive Bottle Of Champagne In London Nightclub

A bar bill that runs into six figures might cause more than a headache the next morning for most people.

But when you’re a millionaire American gambler buying the world’s most expensive bottle of champagne it’s just a case of using up small change.

Gambler Don Johnson, 49, broke the world record at a London nightclub for the most expensive bottle of bubbly ever bought during a night that saw him spend £170,000 ($271,000) on drinks.

Mr Johnson paid a whopping £120,000 ($191,000) for the extravagantly decorated 45kg bottle holding 30 litres of bubbly over the weekend.

The businessman made the purchase while chalking up a £168,118 bill during a trip to Park Lane’s swanky One For One nightclub.

The star, who was in town visiting rock star pal Bon Jovi, started the night with a relatively cheap bottle of Dom Perignon Luminous Magnum 2002 for £750. This was followed by a bottle of Grey Goose Magnum at £420.

After four complimentary bottles of soda water and four cans of red bull for £5, Mr Johnson splashed out with a £25,000 Armand De Brignac Methuselah.

But then the atmosphere, and perhaps the previous drink, appears to have brought out the big spender in Mr Johnson

He heard the nightclub had recently commissioned the biggest bottle of champagne ever made, the Armand De Brignac Midas, and he ordered the bank-breaking bubbly.

Taking to the stage, Johnson grabbed a microphone and popped the cork.

He then sprayed the room with champagne and glugged from the bottle.

The generous gambler then offered swigs of the classy drink to thrilled revellers.

However, according to a friend, themillionaire – known as The Champagne King – doesn’t even like the taste of the French sparkling wine.

A single litre of the alcohol is worth £4,000 and would fill eight champagne flutes, each worth £500.

The previous record for most expensive bottle of champagne was held by the Armand De Brignac (Ace of Spades) Nebuchadnezzar, a 15 litre bottle.

The champagne was bought by an anonymous customer at One for One for £80,000.

Johnson, who has become notorious for his partying lifestyle, is set to host Pamela Anderson’s Birthday Party in Las Vegas this summer.

Earlier this year Mr Johnson beat the Tropicana Casino and Resort in Bensalem, Pennsylvania, for $5.8 million at blackjack.

The win was part of a spectacular roll that also saw him beat Caesars Atlantic City for more than $4.2 million and the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa for $5 million.

It was the first time a casino has lost money in blackjack over a sustained period since gambling in the city was legalised in 1978.
