OG Juan, the President of Roc Nation, and close friend of Jay-Z, celebrated his 50th birthday in style. The overly expensive night included $13K on dinner at Zuma, a Japanese restaurant in Midtown. The dinner included shrimp, lobster, and steak.
OG Juan’s entourage next went to Made in Mexico, a restaurant and nightclub. Jay-Z endlessly ordered D’USSE, a cognac that he is the partial owner of. The group spent $9K on drinks there before heading to their final stop. At Playroom Nightclub, Jay-Z handed out $91K on 40 bottles of champagne. They ordered 20 bottles of Ace of Spades Gold champagne and 20 bottles of Ace of Spades Rose. Ace of Spades was also purchased by Jay-Z in 2014. Although this may seem like a lot of champagne for a few individuals, it is said that they were handing bottles of champagne out to other tables as well.
This story went viral when a server of the club posted their tab on Snapchat detailing some of the expenses for this lavish birthday party. The receipt included $74K worth of champagne, over $6K in taxes, and over $11K for gratuity. Now that’s a nice tip!
Although some people commented on Twitter saying that they were ridiculously spending money on waste, it was really a smart decision by Jay-Z by spending the money on brands where he is at least a partial owner. This amount of spending will eventually land back in his bank account.
After 20 years of friendship, it is not to crazy to think that Jay-Z would spend this much money on OG Juan’s birthday party. Not only is OG a trusted friend, but a 50th birthday is an important milestone in life.
