Maggie's 80s Nightclub

It's often the case that the further you get away from a decade, the better it starts to look. Listen to how people still go on about how great the 60s were, and even the 70s seem to be missed by many.

But the 80s, well, they still look a bit naff, don't they? Was there anything cool about that decade? Ten garish years that saw the likes of Kajagoogoo, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, and Rick Astley in the music charts.

Baywatch was big on TV in those days, and so too was Dallas (can you remember who shot JR?). A rat called Roland saved ITV's ailing breakfast television show from extinction, and Countdown appeared on our screens for the very first time, with the late Richard Whiteley at the helm. And there was one prime minister the whole way through - a woman by the name of Maggie Thatcher.

And that's where an 80s-themed nightclub located in Chelsea got its name from. Maggie's invites you to step back in time and enjoy all the smash hits from the decade while sipping a Pina Colada or possibly a Babycham.

Drink at specially designed Rubik's Cube tables and be served by waitresses wearing permed wigs - if that doesn't remind you of the 80s, nothing will.

Meanwhile, at the bar, Maggie's promises you'll find "bar tenders dressed like Tom Cruise in the cult movie, Cocktail."

And the extensive drink menus includes a range of interestingly-named cocktails, including a Pacman Martini and a Like a Virgin which is, according to the menu, "Del Boy's favourite." There's a Purple Rain too, named after Prince's hit song, of course.

Other drinks are available too, including shooters (Maggie's Shooter, Back to the Future, Walkman etc).

You'll find plenty of things around the nightclub to remind you of the 80s, and the walls of the toilets echo to the sounds of some of Margaret Thatcher's most famous speeches - just what you want to listen to you when you're going about your business.

Maggie's is open Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10.30pm to 2.30am, and Fridays and Saturdays from 10.30pm to 3.30am.

And by the way, it was Kristin who pulled the trigger (on JR).
