Idiot racks up £40,000 bar bill trying to impress Benicio Del Toro

What universe is impressing Benicio Del Toro a positive? Its Benicio Del Toro not Brad Pitt.

A city trader splashed out £40,000 on drinks at a swish London bar while trying to impress Hollywood star Benicio Del Toro.

The commodities dealer - who has not been named - was at a Halloween party at Raffles in Chelsea.

He arrived at around 9.30pm with nine fellow traders and kicked off the evening with a round of zombie-themed vodka cocktails, each costing £30, made from rum, absinthe and grapefruit.

But onlookers said the trader's spending spiralled after the Puerta Rican actor - who starred in Snatch and The Usual Suspects - came and sat nearby.

Del Toro's arrival at around 11pm was said to have sent the party atmosphere 'into a frenzy', prompting the traders to order more drinks.

Within a couple of hours the businessman had splashed out £24,000 on three bottles of Dom Perignon champagne costing £8,000 each.

By the time he left in the early hours of last Thursday morning, he had racked up a receipt for £40,090.73 - including a £5,229.31 tip.

Onlookers believe he got carried away while trying to impress the Hollywood actor.

One said: 'The trader was clearly getting into the spirit of the Halloween, and he wasn't holding back.

'He'd obviously had a good day at the office and wanted to treat his friends.

'Benicio del Toro was at the club that night so perhaps he wanted to show off in front of a Hollywood A lister.'
