BILL OF THE WEEK

THE CHAMPAGNE lounge at Kensington members club Amika is described as “the home of extravagance and indulgence”. And no-one reading this week’s bill would argue with that, because if two jeroboams of Cristal at £5,500 apiece don’t justify the description, then nothing will. Also making an appearance over the four international financiers’ £15,900 Saturday night out were a £1,840 bottle of Grey Goose vodka and a £940 bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label King George V – a blend of spirits produced only from distilleries that operated during the reign of the House of Windsor’s first monarch. So The Capitalist is sure the eight Cokes on the bill were for refreshment and not for pouring into the “exquisite” whisky, made from malts so rare some of them no longer exist. After all, the club that styles itself as “the bedrock of elegance and sophistication” would expect nothing less.
