Future's $12k Strip Club Tab Before Lap Dances

EXCLUSIVE

Future hosted the official Summer '16 After Party at ACES New York Thursday night ... and he got LIT in the VIP section.

Future was seen throwing around handfuls of cash, and we're told he bought 12 bottles of Ace of Spades champagne -- those are a grand each -- and spent $30k overall.

To make things even more tasty ... Pastry Chef Nerwan Khalife provided 6 dozen cupcakes for the VIP that were loaded with Hennessy and topped with pics of Future and Drake.

It was a packed house for Future, who was there for a couple hours until closing time. Young Thug also rolled through.

After-parties are the best parties.
