Top Gun 30th Anniversary Bash at Maggie’s
When: 12th May 2016, 10.30pm – Late
Where: Maggie’s, 329 Fulham Road, London SW10 9QL
£: Admission £15
What is it?
To celebrate the cult classic that made aviators cool, Chelsea’s 1980s-inspired club Maggie’s, is hosting an Official Top Gun 30th Anniversary Bash on Friday 13th May.
Guests who arrive before midnight will be handed a special mask of their favourite character to wear. Partygoers are encouraged to dress up in fighter pilot jumpsuits and rock their best pair of aviator shades and dog tags. Guests that don their Maverick-style costumes will receive a complimentary Top Gun-inspired cocktail for their efforts.
Partygoers can jam out to the best hits from the soundtrack including Danger Zone and Take My Breath Away, and can even have a dance with the handsome Maverick himself, the ultimate wingman. Maggie’s staff will be decked out in Top Gun style gear, and the best-dressed guest will win membership for one year and a complimentary fishbowl to share with friends for the evening.
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 alongside other iconic ‘80s images and paraphernalia, from A team action men to A-Ha platinum discs.
