What is it?
The team behind the 1980s-inspired Chelsea nightclub Maggie’s will create the ultimate retro player’s lounge complete with astro-turf, oversized wooden tennis rackets and ball-shaped bean bags at the internationally renowned Aegon Championships at The Queen’s Club.
For their debut year at The Queen’s Club, the Maggie’s Enclosure will be open from the moment the Championships start on Monday 10th June until its conclusion on Sunday 16th June. Guests will enter the quirky space with features including Rubik’s cube tables, a feature floor complete with tennis court markings, a vintage umpire’s chair and even rollerskaters kitted out in tennis whites and Maggie’s branded visors. The talented bar team will serve the nightclub’s favourite signature drinks such as the Maggie’s Mugs, Fishbowls, and Watering Cans while dressed in homage to the great 1980s tennis stars such as John McEnroe and Boris Becker.
Andy Murray, who was appropriately born in 1987, will be bidding for his third Aegon Championships title at The Queen’s Club this summer. After watching Britain’s number one hope battle it out on court, guests can retire to the Maggie’s Enclosure for a welcome dose of nostalgia where footage of legendary matches from the 1980s will be shown throughout the day.
The Maggie’s nightclub in Chelsea is named after 1980s Prime-Minister-turned-icon Maggie Thatcher. The music is a mixture of classics from the 1980s, and stars from the era play regular DJ sets while guests enjoy drinks ranging from Pina Coladas and Daiquiris to the unforgettable Babycham.
