Is he responsible for the bill? (why/Why Not)A stag party guest is suing Spearmint Rhino after spending £7,500 on strippers while he was ‘drunk’.
Gil David, 34, said he consumed more than 30 alcoholic drinks in just 12 hours when he was in Bournemouth, in August 2013.
When he woke up the next day he found a large credit card bill in his hotel room, which included £1,800 in tips for the women he had been with at the club.
Mr David, a business manager from Portstewart, Northern Ireland, said he couldn’t remember much of the night but was told by staff he was constantly surrounded by strippers.
He claimed the club had ‘exploited’ his drunkenness when he represented himself at Central London County Court.
‘I wasn’t in control of my faculties and didn’t realise what I was doing and what I was spending,’ he said.
‘I was coerced into spending what turned out to be a third of my salary in five hours.
‘I’m not an oligarch or a footballer.’
Mr David was attending a friend’s stag party and had downed beers and Jagermeister shots all day.
He said the club continued to serve him alcohol even though they saw he was drunk.
