FOUR bankers celebrating a promotion in the group managed to celebrate in style with a school night blow-out a couple of weeks ago – dropping over £1,000 on a Wednesday night at Kingly Court members’ hotspot The Bureau Club.

Between them, the high-spirited quartet sank two bottles of vintage Dom Pérignon over the evening, at £370 a pop, alongside a selection of exotic cocktails, including the intriguingly named Red Amex – a two-person sharer spiked with Cointreau, Courvoisier XO and Laurent Perrier Rosé. Chased down with lavender mojitos, the party kept its energy levels up with a couple of food platters to offset the effects of the colourful drinks. Stomachs were lined by a selection of cheeses plus mini British classics – pies, hamburgers and fish and chips.

We’d imagine there were a few sore heads, not to mention abused-feeling credit cards, come Thursday morning.
