Jay-Z sure knows how to party. To celebrate the birthday of Juan “OG” Perez, the Grammy Award-winning artist and a group of friends reportedly spent more than $100,000 during a night out in New York City—and a photo of one pricey receipt is now going viral on social media.
Page Six reports that Jay-Z and a group of executives from Roc Nation hit the town to celebrate the Roc Nation Sports president’s birthday. On Sunday, they started their evening at Zuma, a high-end Japanese restaurant, where they spent $13,000 on sushi, lobster and steak. The group then spent more than $100,000 on drinks between stops at Made In Mexico and the Playroom nightclub. According to the report, he “was seen handing bottles out to other tables in the club.”

A server later shared an image of the receipt from the Playroom on Snapchat. The group, which included Perez’s wife, Jay-Z’s cousin and Roc Nation executives, spent more than $80,000 on drinks—plus an $11,000 tip—for a total of $91,135 in one night. At the nightclub, they splurged on 40 bottles of Ace of Spades champagne, a brand that was acquired by Jay-Z in 2014.
The Playroom reacted to the rapper’s visit on Instagram, writing, “First of all Thank God for everything!! What happen last Night has become the topic of discussion on social Media but for us was more then the money!! Having the GOAT #jayz #rocnationin the building was priceless!!! Thanks to everyone that came out and behaved!!!” In the video, the bottles can be seen being delivered across the room.
Many people were shocked to see how much the group spent on drinks. Some social media users joked about wanting to earn the same $11,000 tip, while others questioned why Jay-Z didn’t tip 20 percent. See how social media reacted to the pricey night out below:

40 bottles for 6 guests? It’s either time to have an intervention or Jay-Z is drinking out of the world’s tiniest bottles and we’re all dumb and poor for drinking out of our regular sized bottles. https://t.co/E8CFTJ7tSy

The crazy thing is Jay-z owns the brand so he’s literally paying himself. This level of finesse ain’t fair. https://t.co/0iMqZUAQqs

Jay-Z Tips Less Than 14% https://t.co/3zmil2YMam

I was a server for many years, waited on tons of celebrities/rich folk, not leaving 20% is just not right. $11,000 is a lot of money, but if you have money to spend 90k like it’s nothing, you have money to tip 20%. https://t.co/KD8SCq9fw4

If Jay Z is only tipping 15% I’ll never have enough money to tip 18-20%

Imagine Jay Z randomly comes to your work 1 day and leaves you that tip, Jesus be my inhaler I would actually pass out. https://t.co/1WTMuBhJsm
