Miami Heat comped $100,000 worth of alcohol for NBA Finals celebration
The Miami Heat’s NBA championship celebration at Story Nightclub on Thursday included 100 $850 bottles of Dom Perignon and three $5,000 bottles of Jeroboams champagne, for a total tab of $100,000.
And the players didn’t have to pay for any of it, according to ESPN’s Darren Rovell.
Club owner David Grutman comped all of the alcohol for the team, he told Rovell, saying, “I’m not going to charge the Heat.”
Grutman comped the alcohol at LIV nightclub after the Heat won the 2012 title, as well, but the year before — when the Mavericks topped the Heat in Game 6 and celebrated at LIV — he charged Mavs owner Mark Cuban $90,000 for a 15-liter bottle of Armand de Brignac champagne.
The celebration featured an appearance by rapper Drake, who joined LeBron James and Dwyane Wade at the club.
Miami will cap the celebration with a parade down Biscayne Boulevard on Monday morning.
