Patriots’ Rob Gronkowski Reportedly Racks Up $100,000 Bar Tab
When you’re set to make $4 million next year, it stands to reason that you can afford a few lavish nights out. But a bill for $102,407 during a random weekend in June seems a little much.
New England Patriots’ tight-end Rob Gronkowski appears to have done just that, after spending a night at the Foxwoods Resort Casino’s Shrine nightclub in Connecticut, according to TMZ, which obtained a copy of the itemized receipt from the night.
Gronkowski has denied having racking up such an audacious bill, tweeting, “Don’t always believe what you read. This is where 100k+ would go to before that.” The “where” Gronk was referring to was the Boston Children’s Hospital, to whom the football player donated $110,000 to back in February.

A photographer working for Shrine night club was the first to make the receipt public, posting a photo of it to Instagram with the caption, “And this is how you party.” Although the photo has since been deleted, pictures of Gronkowski partying still remain.
The bill has several glaring charges on it including a $27,000 charge for 15 bottles of Dom Perignon Rose and a $18,000 charge for 18 bottles of Ace of Spades Rose.
The receipt also claims Gronkowski and his crew bought 16 bottles of Grey Goose for $10,400 and $250 worth of Voss water bottles.
Twitter users have noted that the receipt appears to be altered when considering that the suggested tip amount is only $184.33 where the suggested 15 percent tip normally appears. If this is the case, the total bill would be a little less than $1,250.

Gronkowski has gained a reputation in the past for being a wild partier. After the 2016 NFL season, Gronk put together a four-day trip on a party cruise to his own island in the Bahamas. “It’s time to PARTY, it’s time to ROCK, but more importantly, it’s time to get GRONK’D,” the cruise’s website read.
