SIX thirsty city workers indulged in a cocktail swilling session at Odette’s Restaurant in Primrose Hill last Thursday to celebrate bonus day. And their big bonus splash-out also involved a bottle of Puligny Montrachet at £90 a pop.

Ironically, the wine is known as “Scabby Hill” (Mont Rachaz) but we’re not sure this was reflected in their other indulgences, which included three classy bottles of Dom Perignon at £540 in total and a bargain-value bottle of plonk, Gevrey Chambertin, at £88.

For the service charge of £113, venison pie and battered fish was served as blotting paper, alongside some platters of smoked salmon and chicken wings.

It must have been hard to haul their overloaded bodies from the comfy sofas at 3.09pm, when the bill was paid, amounting in total to £1,020.38.
