London, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle and Liverpool are the most popular destinations for UK dress hire this month at Girl Meets Dress so we’ve decided to take you through the best rentals for each. This blog will feature our most popular city London.
What’s going on in London?
Hitting the Town: Maggie’s
Maggie’s is a 1980s themed boutique members late-night bar in the heart of Chelsea, named after Prime-Minister-turned-icon Maggie Thatcher who was in power throughout this ten year period.
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 resident Maggie’s DJ plays a fantastic range of classic 80s music from this vibrant decade as bartenders dressed in neon coloured t-shirts, sweat bands and 80s gear, serve up a range of drinks from Piña Coladas and Daiquiris to the unforgettable Babycham. The waitresses, meanwhile, are dressed in union jack and Rubik’s cube dresses and serve guests sat at giant Rubik’s cube and old school cassette tape tables.
