Russian Billionaire's Son

Drops $100,000 on Champagne

... for Zac Efron & Pals!

10/5/2011 2:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Zac Efron Champagne bill
Zac Efron went to Chicago ... and all he got was a $100,000 bottle of champagne from the son of a Russian billionaire!!!

Efron was at the Board Room nightclub Tuesday night -- for an event organized by Elite Entertainment -- along with Heather Graham and other people from a movie they're working on together.

Sources at the club tell us ... the Russian saw the actors and wanted to send them a gift, so he fired over a 15 litre bottle of Armand de Brignac Nebuchadnezzar Champagne, also known as "Ace of Spades."

The Russian also bought some stuff for his OWN table, including 2 magnum bottles of Grey Goose, 2 magnum bottles of Dom Perignon, 4 bottles of Cristal and 3 magnum bottles of Laurent-Perrier Brut Rosé.

The total bill -- $112,550 ... PLUS -- dude dropped a $22,510 TIP for his server, Jasmine -- 20%.

Not bad for a Tuesday night.

If you got it like that you can use it like that. Dude is a billionaire...that money he spent was his pocket money.

Wealthy people have to have something to spend their money on. Why waste it creating jobs and opportunities for the peasants.

Who cares what wealthy people spend money on. This does create plenty of jobs. $100k just went from a billionaire to a club. The club hires people. One or a bunch of servers split a 20k tip depending on how tips are shared. All these people will respend this money instead of having it sit in the billionaires savings account. So the billionaire may have been wasteful, but he very much was redistributing wealth (admittedly in a flashy way). Since we are in a liquidity trap it only really matters that the money gets away from its liquidity trap and into hands of people who will begin rapidly spending it.

I should just waitress and hope someone who wants to waste a lot of money gets seated in my section and I get a really fat tip. Oh yeah now I remember...bc I want to contribute something positive to the world. Not saying waitresses don't.

Whats crazy is that the club is profiting over 400% on what the bottle is actually worth (around $25,000)...whats even worse is someone that will actually allow themselves to get ripped off like that just for some drink...

TMZ, a note: "Nebuchadnezzar" is not a part of the name of the champagne. It's the size of the bottle.

Sometimes when people report things they do a little research to find out what it is they're trying to say. Sometimes.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Since when does 3 @ 160... = $4800? If they didn't abbreviate the others they shouldn't have abbreviated that. If that bill wasn't questioned he deserved to get ripped off.
