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:

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)

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.

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!

One of many reasons why the world is so fucked up is that women get wet for these assholes.  Money, power, superficial charm, and the attitude of the entitled alpha male.  This is like the peacock's tail:  A trait that is detrimental to the species yet becomes ever more decadent and draining.  Chasing the peacock's tail becomes a Darwinian imperative simply because all other females are chasing that tail, but this is a doomed strategy.  The peacock will eventually become extinct because of its tail.  If a species is to achieve great things, sexual selection must align with the traits that allow it to exploit its niche.  For example, the falcon's record feats of speed and acrobatics are due to its courtship ritual, which in turn enhances its predatory niche of attacking other birds in mid-air.

Imagine a world where women chased alturism and intelligence.  These traits would increase and ultimately bring disaster for the elites.  This is one reason for the constant stream of consumerism, keeping up with the Joneses, celebrity worship, stupidity worship, etc.  The elites define status, get everyone chasing it, and decide who gets the fake paper to fulfill their fake dreams.  I think women are more easily manipulated by status, fads, consumerism and TV, the elites know this, and they use it to selectively breed out the men who they have marginalized through economics.  And pussy, even the ever-receding mirage of potential pussy, can be a great conformity enforcer.  It is one of the reasons I have a house and a mortgage.

well, blame men for that.  It is we who provided a safe environment where women can put on a pants suit and go sit in an office and pretend to work and they get a real paycheck for it.

So women no longer need a decent man.  They can use men as sex objects and the ones that are the highest desire sex objects are those who are alphas who treat women like shit.  The caveman, high test guys.  The worse you treat hoez the more they like you.

You add in the divorce law situation and the lack of stigma...why should a woman not go for the high status guy?  it's zero risk.  Now, a little age and wisdom shows that this tendency just gets them dipped and flipped and served like flapjacks by guys like me, but wtf eh?  The system makes you HAVE to be a douchebag or else you just get stepped on.

I feel bad for the low test beta dudes without big dicks and fat stacks and who ain't been had $ can either have an average girl at best or get sloppy 30ths from some girl who's gotten past prime enough that alphas won't give her the time of day any longer and all of the bitterness and jadedness that comes with that

Truth with the abusive alpha chimp thing.  We are our own worst enemies, both men and women, and Darwin probably deserves as much blame as the elites.  And it cuts both ways.  Guys need to stop falling for girls with tit sizes higher than their IQs.  The end of the story is that so many people end up disappointed in this fucked up game and we don't even have the self-awareness to figure out why.  I'll probably end up waiting for silver to blow up and then, knowing that American women are the most shallow and money-grubbing in the entire world, I will get a mail-order bride from Thailand who will turn out to be a scammer or a tranny crack whore or something.  That will be my punishment for being disgusted with the game.

Wow, that is one of the saddest comments I've read on this site. Truly I hope you are being sarcastic. There are people of quality to be found, perhaps you are looking in the wrong places? I guess I should thank you for reminding me how fortunate I am to be in such a passionate, mutally respectful relationship. Oh yeah, just FYI, I have 2 friends that got philappino mail order brides that got screwed royally... just not in the way they wanted.

Fitting that the bottle is named after Nebuchadnezzar. Wonder if this trader has ever heard the story about his son...

They don't even sell that champagne in the top clubs or restaurants in London!  What the fuck is Liverpool? Some northern oik city where everyone has a stupid accent like frikkin Ringo Starr? If you were such a hot shot, why would you even be there, of all places?  Doesn't make sense.

  • NASDAQ  hits magic 3,000
  • S&P hits 2 year high
  • largest (known) bar tab in history?

Is the top in or will Ben print us into prosperity and rainbow shitting unicorns?

Top is in and sell is on.  Nasdaq bubble popping, Oil crunch dropping (divergence from equities is frightening).  ECB has f*cked up EZ bond prices and added confusion to the CDS market.

and China...

Print jobs might not be able to do much now but add to volatility.

Credit card? Only Amex would likely let something go through at that level.....even then.......

Lets see, I'm young, just blown away my career on some stupid trade/mistake/overleverage whatever and (somehow) I have a tab or some other means to be billed for some ridiculous amount at a silly bar that I'll never be able to repay. I'm toast, so what the hell? 

There's a fraud in here somewhere I wager.....

hahaha grey goose Vodka?  Any club that doesn't have Polish Belevdre is no good in my books.

FX traders running 300K plays is so 1980's.  Half, no 90% of the market is HFT gaming. 

Anyways the UK/North is a deadzone.  Looking forward to the 2012 riots redux, in fact the whole of the EZ.
