Revealed: Andy Murray’s bar bill after US Open win

Andy Murray celebrated his first Grand Slam title at the US Open last night with a visit to a trendy New York venue, and the drinks were on him.

The Scot went to Hakkasan with around 30 friends to toast his triumph, and quickly racked up a bill of $6,448 for the evening - around £4,000.

There were bottles of champagne ordered, as well as 17 'Zesty' Martinis.

But actually, Murray's spend at the restaurant's Ling Ling bar is moderate given the fact that it includes 30 of the signature meals, which account for $5,040 of the bill.

Not something most of us would spend at a single sitting, perhaps, but given that Murray had just pocketed $1.9m after winning the tournament, it won't have been too much of a blowout.

And as for Murray's share of the bill? If you want to drink like the Scot after the biggest win of his life, the good news is that it is not out of your price range.

Murray, who signed the bill and a menu for the restaurant, had only a single lemon soda, which set him back $6.
