Here comes a not so careless whisper: this Sunday (10.30pm-3.30am), Maggie’s nightclub leads a resurgence in shoulder pads at Shoulder Pad Sunday, a night where power, seduction and excess fabric dominate. Dynasty-style shoulder pads are required for entry; she or he who sports the largest receives a suitably stylish prize. In keeping with the club’s identity (Margaret Thatcher’s speeches play in the loos, walls are crammed with A-Team paraphernalia, A-HA platinum discs etc), music is suitably 80s-themed, whilst bar tenders dressed like Tom Cruise in ‘Cocktail’ serve Like A Virgin and Purple Rain cocktails. glass of Babycham, anyone?
Maggie’s, 329 Fulham Road, SW10 9QL (020 7352 8512); RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org in advance (entry £15 pp).
