Maggie's 80s-themed enclosure to open at Aegon Championships

The team behind Maggie's nightclub in London's Chelsea are to create an 80s-themed enclosure at the Aegon Championships at The Queen's Club, London, in June.

This will be the second year for the nightclub-inspired enclosure, which opened for the first time at the 2013 tennis tournament.

It will have themed décor in line with its original nightclub namesake, including Rubik's cube tables, a floor with tennis court markings, a vintage umpire's chair, and rollerskaters wearing tennis whites.

Drinks on offer will include Tanqueray No. Ten-based cocktails, as well as Moët champagne and Asahi beer.

It will be open during the entire event, from Monday 9 June to Sunday 15 June.

Owned and operated by the Inception Group, which was founded by Charlie Gilkes and Duncan Stirling, the original Maggie's nightclub is named after the later Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, whose speeches can be heard playing in the toilets.

It also plays 1980s music and serves classic cocktails such as pina coladas and daiquiris.

The group's other restaurants and bars include speakeasy-style bar Barts, pizzeria and karaoke bar Bunga Bunga, Phileas Fogg-inspired site Mr Fogg's, and underground 1970s-themed club Disco.

The group also plans to launch a Brazilian beach party-themed nightclub named Cocobananas, and a dance "saloon" based on log cabins in Wyoming, USA, named Beaver Lodge, this summer.
