FX Trader Spends $323,483 At Liverpool Night Club

Tyler Durden's picture

In what could be the largest (known) bartab in history, an unknown gentleman spent £203,948.80 ($323,483 at the closing GBPUSD spot rate) at Liverpool nightclub PlayGround - a purchase which included a £125,000 bottle of the world's most expensive champagne, Nebuchadnezzar of Armand de Brignac Midas, as well as a whole lot of other drinks, including among them 42 instances of "Pussy" at a low price of £3.00 (the Dire Straits definitely had that part right). The man "was there with about ten friends on a private table but after the big bottle came in they were mobbed by gorgeous girls." As for the man's background: an FX trader believed to be "in his early twenties." Sure enough, this will hardly help bridging the already uncrossable chasm between the 99ers (of whom virtually all can live for this amount for at least one year) and the "balance." Naturally, every hedge fund will now scramble to find and hire said generous patron, who due to his age one can assume was not former SNB head, and comparable FX trading whiz-kid, Philipp Hildebrand.

From The Sun:

Clubbers watched in shock as the man, believed to be a foreign exchange currency trader in his twenties, ordered it.


Nightclub boss George Panayiotou ordered the DJ to play the iconic opening music to the film 2001: A Space Odyssey — Richard Strauss' Also Sprach Zarathustra as it was ferried to the trader's table.


One clubber said: "The club went wild when he popped this huge bottle of champagne, and they were handing out glasses of champagne to everyone in the VIP room.


"There must have been about 60 of them at any time vying for his attention and he then ordered shots for every single woman in the club."

And that kids, is why going to college is overrated, and everyone should start frontrunning central banks at the earliest age possible.

Those curious what the club is like, here is a clip from the opening:

But did he get shagged?


Yeah, but strip clubs are not included in the CPI.

He clearly has much more money than game.

Odds are that he'll be broke sometime in the next few years and then will lie awake at night wishing he hadn't blown £200k in a shitty nightclub buying drinks for ugly tarts...

Like a lottery winner.  US$300,000 just isn't enough!

Pussy at least was cheap!  

If I had that much cash, i would immediately fly to Bangkok and do my coke and hookers there and save 90%

Rule for life: Never believe what a stripper tells you. Ever. She is not on your side. Ever. Remember this. It is essential to be on your guard when at strip clubs, and generally speaking I do not recommend going to strip clubs at all. Remember, as Chris Rock says, there is no sex in the champagne room (unless you’re in Thailand, the Dominican Republic, etc)

"Rule for life: Never believe what a stripper tells you."

In other news, researchers find shocking evidence that the Earth is round.

Next time, stop at the hookers and blow in Bangkok act. That was at least halfway funny.

Young foreigner FX trader who goes bezerk with booze and nekkid women.

Sounds like a proper gulf state young moslem FX trader.  He probably was nostalgic for his harem back home.

He will never be broke.

Wait til he finds out about german FKK clubs.

doesn't islam forbid sex outside of marriage?  i'm sure he is a very nice boy and would not do such.

except maybe with infidels?   :)

This trader will someday curse karma.

Pussy is cheap and champagne pricey in that joint.  Either way, if you get the quality of pussy shown in the video 42 times the tab was probably worth every penny.

That bottle is way cool

I would have been on a mission to add that to my collection that night....

125000.00 thats sick

All those prices seem ridiculously inflated.... 1000 per liter of Grey Goose?

I see Gratuity has no amount visible, what would be the % in Liverpool?

Whata chump....

Took a look at the Playground web site.  Skanky ho's a'plenty.  Snooki would fit right in.  Is a Liverpool spinoff of Jersey Shore in the works?

Fucking outsourcing!

Well, in any case, score one mark for "trickle-down economics"...

BTW I think "Pussy" is the new Red Bull - obviously a product specifically designed for moneyed D-bags in nightclubs to yell out for in really witty/creative ways.

The guy who came up with that marketing concept can keep this receipt on his resume forever.

Yea I miss Ron as well.  I dont care for all this contentious "99%" or "1%"  bullshit.

Look up "Sum Poosie." It is/was (don't know if it still exists, can't be bothered to look it up) an energy drink that was designed solely for that purpose -- giving douchebags a chuckle while they order it at the bar. There's also a place in LA called "Pink Taco" whose only claim to fame is the suggestive name. Marketers FTW!

Did Bernanke do that when he was 23?

Nah, the Schmuck was too busy studying the Great Depression.

Pussy was only $3?

Interesting dynamic going on at that club.

ACP's picture

Ugh, sounds about as appetizing as a 35 cent taco.

I ate quite a lot of those when I visited Mexico. They were very tasty..."muy, muy rico!" I can´t really promise that they were FDA approved but on the other hand NutraSweet is so that argument is pretty much out the window any way.

In Soviet London, 35 cent taco eats you!

I am pretty bearish on "Pussy"

marketblip's picture

I like the way he also ordered 42 pussys at £3 per pussy

He sounds like a classy guy.

Hookers and blow generally cost a lot less.

Don't know if I'd trust $3.00 pussy.   Yeah, humanity is "winning" for sure.

I don't know if I'd hump 3 dollar pussy with Paul Krugman's dick.
