On Thursday 5th February, Maggie’s 80s club in Chelsea will be partnering with luxurious beauty institution, MichaelJohn, in Knightsbridge, to help dust off those closet cobwebs after a ‘dry Jan’, blowing them and your hair into seasonal style, with an event that honors the ultimate 80s fashion statement, BIG Hair.
On arrival those whose hair is not already too big to fit through the door, will be whisked off to have either their hair, or make-up, (or why not both) done by an expert team of stylists at their various stations, courtesy of Michael John and L’Oreal.
Not wanting to waste the ultimate #ThrowbackThursday #selfie opportunity, guests will then be encouraged to tweet or instagram pictures of themselves and their #BIG80shair looks to @Maggies club and @___MichaelJohn, to be in with the chance of wining a luxury goodie bag, jam packed with pampering delights.
For those that have really gone to town and can’t see the UV menu through their own personal hairspray cloud, fear not, just ask one of bar staff for a CIROC Vodka special, guaranteed to make your hair stand on end even if the hairspray doesn’t.
Maggie’s is named after 1980s Prime-Minister-turned-icon Maggie Thatcher, club-goers can hear her famous speeches playing in the loos, while Thatcher memorabilia vies for space on the walls along with other iconic 80s images and paraphernalia. The music is a mixture of classics from the 1980s and modern pop, with cocktails ranging from Pina Coladas and Daiquiris to the unforgettable Babycham.
Maggie’s is owned and operated by The Inception Group whose founders Charlie Gilkes and Duncan Stirling have also created Chelsea speakeasy Barts, Bunga Bunga, an Englishman’s Italian, Bar, Pizzeria and Karaoke venue, which achieved widespread acclaim and Mr Fogg’s, a Mayfair bar modelled on the home of Jules Verne’s most famous adventurer, Phileas Fogg. Last year they also opened Cocobananas, a Brazilian beach party themed nightclub, and Beaver Lodge, a cabin bar and dance saloon based on the winter cowboy log cabins found in Wyoming.
