How was your holiday weekend? Maybe you indulged a bit — say, drank a bit much, and spent a bit much in the process. Well, you can console yourself with this: At least you didn't do the kind of damage Jay-Z did on Sunday, when he spent more than $110,000 on a single bar tab. (Not that your checking account looks like his either, but...)
He was out in Manhattan celebrating the 50th birthday of his friend Juan "OG" Perez, who runs the rapper's Roc Nation Sports empire. And, as you might expect Jay-Z to do, he was handling the bill.
According to Page Six, the evening started out with dinner at Zuma, where the bill came out to a modest (ahem) $13,000. Then, the group of Roc Nation execs headed to Made in Mexico in Inwood, where they spent $9,000 on drinks — including Jay Z-'s own D’Ussé cognac — followed by a stop at the club Playroom.
And that's where the most major chunk of spending happened, even though the group was down to just six at that point. They ordered and paid full price for 40 bottles of various kinds of Ace of Spades Champagne — also owned by Jay-Z!
So how did six people drink that much? Well they didn't: He handled bottles out to other tables in the club. (Right place, right time...)
Even if this didn't exactly mark a notable level of spending for Jay-Z, it was a pretty big night for the server, who posted the check on Snapchat.
Final bill? $91,135, including a $11,000 tip — and that's not bad for a night's honest work.
Jay-Z coulda bought the night spot, but this time he just bought out the bar.
