Maggie Thatcher's Drinking Club
The club where you can party like it's 1983
Location: 329-331 Fulham Road, Chelsea, SW10 9QL
Description: This was once a Eighties-themed club inspired by Margaret Thatcher.
Once called 'Maggie's' in Chelsea, the former prime minister glareg at patrons from black-and-white photos on the stairs, her face is the main subject of a mural on the wall, and her most famous speeches are broadcast in the lavatories.
Charlie Gilkes and Duncan Stirling chose Thatcher as one of the most enduring figures of the decade.
Maggie memorabilia competes for space with other Eighties artefacts at the 150-capacity underground bar in Fulham Road.
Memorabilia includes giant Rubik's Cube tables, a Beano collage on the wall, and a cocktail menu which can be read through View-Masters. Display cases are full of everything from A-Team figures to A-ha platinum discs.
Stars from the era will play regular DJ sets. Bartenders dressed like Tom Cruise in Eighties cult movie Cocktail serve up drinks including pina coladas and Babycham.
