A violent thug has been banned from EVERY pub and club in London after he carried out an unprovoked drunken attack on an innocent man.
Richard Bowman, 28, punched his 21-year-old victim so hard he was knocked to the ground and he lost two teeth.
Southwark Crown Court heard the brutal attack took place inside the Salvador and Amanda club in the heart of the West End in October 2014.
He was caught after a CCTV image of him inside the venue was publicised on BBC Crimewatch Roadshow.
On Tuesday he was given a suspended jail sentence, banned from all pubs and clubs in the city for 18 months and ordered to pay the victim £3,500 compensation.
