BILL OF THE WEEK

TWO things are in plentiful supply at the 1980s-themed club Maggies in West London: bad taste and Russian Standard vodka. Combine the two, as one City boy did when he turned up to “start Christmas early” with seven friends, and you find yourself wearing the Miner’s Cap – a hat adorned with the Iron Lady’s face that dripfeeds cocktails as you dance. Elsewhere on the Thatcher-era drinks order were the Maggie’s Fishbowl – vodka, Malibu, Midori and champagne – and the larger sharkbowl version called Brewster’s Millions, pina coladas, Grey Goose vodka and Rubiks Cube shooters.
