Chinawhite tells BourbonBlog.com that Olympic gold medallists are being treated to an exclusive alcoholic cocktail priced at £2,012 (approximately $3, 150) at their trendy London nightclub.
Stars such as swimmers Ryan Lochte and Chad le Clos have joined a swath of fellow Olympians by descending upon the fashionable Chinawhite club in the heart of London, a popular hangout for celebrities and millionaire football stars.
During the London Olympics, Chinawhite has branded their club The Last Lap “The Athlete Entertainment Venue.”
The video segment below gives more details on how fun the paries have become recently for the Olympians!
In celebration of the Olympics, Chinawhite’s bartender invented a special golden cocktail, which is being sold, for the appropriately Olympic-themed sum.
That is, unless, course, you are one of the gold medallists invited to the club’s VIP area, in which case a lavish surprise awaits you with a cocktail on the house and more.
Any Olympic athlete is allowed in the club, needing only to show his or her Games accreditation. Olympic champions also are handed a bottle of Moët & Chandon Champagne, with sparklers coming out the top, and the partying continues until around 4am.
Leading DJs such as Paul Oakenfold have played sets — as did men’s 200-meter backstroke gold medallist Tyler Clary.
“The athletes have been preparing for this for years, so it is great for us to provide them with a place where they can let their hair down and enjoy themselves,” the club’s director James Spallone tells BourbonBlog.com
What is in the $3,000 “Gold Eater” ocktail?
The drink contains Hennessy Paradis Imperial cognac, Luxor 24-carat gold leaf Champagne, plus a set of handmade 18-carat gold rings placed in the bottom of the glass.
Chinawhite has been the most popular nightspot among the Olympians over the past week.
It is hosting its Games parties in conjunction with the Last Lap, an Australian company that provides athlete-specific entertainment at major events.
Whereas the centre of London was effectively deserted when compared to its normal bustle early in the Olympics, the crowds have returned over the past few days.
The influx of athletes heading to the city’s nightspots has certainly helped trade, with many fans venturing into the busiest areas hoping to catch a glimpse of the heroes of the Games.
