Boston Red Sox Drop $500k at LA Nightclub after World Series Win

The Red Sox may have beaten the Dodgers in the World Series — but LA clubgoers certainly weren’t sore losers when the Sox went out after the game to celebrate. At West Hollywood hot spot Nightingale after their win, one generous VIP patron sent the team $100,000 in Champagne, LA spies told Page Six.

Hollywood nightlife sources told us that a police escort led the MLB champs straight from the locker room to the SBE club, which was hosting its Greystone Sundays hip-hop party.

Said a source, “Fans in Boston gear were jumping out of their cars to congratulate them as the Sox brigade entered the valet area.”

We hear that “once inside, the teammates took over four large VIP tables overlooking the dance floor. The whole room cheered as they walked in. There were around 50 in their group,” including Chris Sale, Mookie Betts, J.D. Martinez, Brock Holt and Steve Pearce.

The source added, “One neighboring VIP-table client was so excited, he sent over $100,000 in Champagne to the players as a gift for their win — and the players also spent thousands on their own tab, buying all the best top-shelf bottles all night.”

Also in the house were several LA Clippers and Rams players, plus Ty Dolla $ign and Jeremih — who were on the scene to celebrate their new collaborative album, “MihTy.”

On top of all that, the club had a Halloween theme. Said a guest: “The energy in the room was at another level.”

“MihTy” also features French Montana, Chris Brown and Wiz Khalifa.

Amongst the damages for the night:

  • 48 bottles of Dom Perignon champagne
  • 43 bottles of Ace of Spades Armand de Brignac champagne
  • 60 bottles of the slightly cheaper Moet & Chandon champagne
  • 5 bottles of the bright orange Veuve Cliquot bubbly
  • 12 bottles of Perrier-Jouet champagne
  • 1 bottle of Cristal (because why the hell not)
  • Don Julio tequila (amount unknown)
  • Belvedere vodka (amount unknown)
  • 17 bottles of Jack Daniels whiskey
  • 11 bottles of Jameson irish whiskey

The best part is, the players didn’t even have to foot the bill (or that massive tip). Someone from the team paid the tab. Even though LA’s home team lost, at least some folks in the nightclub business won last Sunday evening.

The Most Expensive Champagne in Las Vegas

Congratulations, Las Vegas, you are about to open the biggest bottle of rosé Champagne ever produced. Tonight Hakkasan‘s MGM Grand outpost will uncork a bottle of Armand de Brignac Rosé 30L Midas, and it is enormous. According to the press release below, the 30-liter bottle contains about the same amount of champagne as 40 standard 750ml bottles. Its dimensions are similar to that of a small human’s: the bottle weighs about 100 pounds and is over four feet tall. Three bottles of this over the top champange are available at Omnia Las Vegas as well.

Not surprisingly, this gigantic bottle of Champagne doesn’t come cheap and is priced on the Hakkasan menu at $275,000. The price apparently accounts for the fact that only eight people work on the bottle, doing everything by hand. A very limited number of bottles were produced, and shipping must be very difficult, so anyone looking to spend piles and piles of money on an expensive drink might want to consider the more readily available $10,000 cocktail. Check out the press release below:

Taking Winemaking Innovation & Handmade Luxury to New Heights

Since Armand de Brignac Champagne was first launched, we have strived to do things distinctively. We are therefore excited to announce the release of our groundbreaking 30-Liter Rosé “Midas” bottle. Equivalent to 40 regular-sized 750ml bottles, weighing 100 pounds (45kg) and measuring over 4 feet high, this colossal bottle is the world’s largest bottle of Rosé Champagne ever produced!

We are further excited to announce that, on 13th December 2013, the first ever Armand de Brignac Rosé Midas will be uncorked at Hakkasan Las Vegas located at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino.

Yvonne Lardner, Global Director of Brand Communications for Armand de Brignac Champagne comments, “From our insistence upon using grapes from the most historic villages of Champagne to our requirement that every step of the process be done by hand, everything about Armand de Brignac is done with an eye for quality and uniqueness. We are proud to be setting new benchmarks with our incredible large-format bottles and thrilled to be unveiling our one-of-a-kind Rosé Midas Champagne experience at Hakkasan Las Vegas.”

Armand de Brignac Champagne, instantly identifiable by the distinctive pewter Ace of Spades insignias on its bottle, exemplifies unmatched winemaking expertise and a true passion for the art of Champagne. A staff of just eight people crafts each bottle of Armand de Brignac by hand at our family house, established in 1763 in Chigny-les-Roses, France. Armand de Brignac counts among its accolades a score of 98 points from world-renowned wine critic José Peñín and a glowing review from UK critic Jancis Robinson. Armand de Brignac’s flagship Brut Gold cuvée was ranked No. 1 by Fine Champagne Magazine in their “100 Best Champagnes for 2010” blind tasting. Armand de Brignac is currently available in more than 110 countries worldwide.

Hakkasan Las Vegas, a restaurant and nightclub complex, offers a unique convergence of modern Cantonese cuisine and an all-encompassing nightlife experience, featuring world renowned talent such as Tiësto, Calvin Harris, Hardwell, Steve Aoki and many more. The immersive 80,000-square-foot, five-level space offers a variety of environments, including the restaurant, private dining room, Ling Ling Lounge, Ling Ling Club, main nightclub, pavilion and mezzanine, and was recently named one of “America’s Best New Clubs” by Rolling Stone and awarded the title of “No. 1 Nightclub in the World” by Playboy Magazine.

Due to the labour-intensive production methods involved in making Armand de Brignac Champagne and the highly skilled expertise required in creating our large format bottles, only an extremely limited number of Armand de Brignac Rosé 30L Midas bottles will be made available. The Rosé Midas will be listed at Hakkasan Las Vegas for $275,000.
