Passenger was going to las vegas with a woman and ready to have fun! Drank 5 minis of liquor, which we thought were purchased to share with his date. He drank them all and was slurring by landing. He got up on final descent. We were strapped in jumpseats, wheels were down, to use lavatory. I advised (through door) to take his seat for landing to avoid injury. When he came out of lavatory, cigarette smoke and odor poured out with him. He had arrogant attitude from beginning of boarding. 1) he wanted cocktails before departure. 2) used the lavatory on taxi out, even though we advised him not to. 3) wanted cocktails as soon as we took off. 4) very demanding. 5) then, smoked in lavatory on final descent. Issued him the warning. Auths met plane. We were advised by agent he would be barred from flying with my company again.
