Tensions Are High In The Hamptons Over Escalating Champagne & Rosé Prices

Tensions Are High In The Hamptons Over Escalating Champagne & Rosé Prices

If you live in New York and have money to burn, you’re either a Nantucket person or a Hamptons person. You live for those summer Fridays off when you can head to the coast, toss on some designer shades, and get hammered off champagne and rosé until the Sunday Scaries put you into a Xanax-fueled coma until you do it all again the next weekend. It’s a religion. It’s a way of life.

But what happens when someone takes your coveted champagne and rosé and attempts to take it away from you? What happens when you have to shell over $27,000 for a 6-liter bottle of Dom Perignon when you’re trying to get faded at the new Southampton hotspot, Jue Lan Club? After all, that’s your livelihood they’re asking you to sacrifice in order to fit in with all the other WASPs looking to toss down their black cards in order to fit in.

Well that’s the problem everyone is facing as prices skyrocket. Just look at this menu.

Per Page Six.

The drinks menu at the new Jue Lan Club in Southampton includes a 6-liter Methuselah of Dom Pérignon Rosé for an astonishing $27,000, and a 3-liter Jeroboam of Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Rosé for $12,000 (usually retails at around $1,600).

Despite this, sources tell us the restaurant was so packed that “people had to wait hours for tables and someone punched the owner, Stratis Morfogen.”

However, someone at the restaurant explained, “A guy tried to punch a friend of Stratis and security threw him out.” Hopefully he paid his check first.

How dare they make these privileged people willing to pay tens-of-thousands of dollars for bottle service to wait hours to get a table. I mean, last weekend was Memorial Day fucking Weekend and you’re going to rudely tell these kids not to turn up with some $12,000 Perrier-Jouët? How dare you? These dudes came here to do three things and three things only – blackout, unbutton their shirts all the way, and spend incredible amounts of money on liquor that should cost half the amount they’re paying.

And honestly, if you’re going to take that way from them? You deserve to get punched in the face.
