Glamorous Revelry at Ashley Sutton's Newest Creation: Maggie Choo’s
July 07, 2023
Hidden in the heart of Central, Hong Kong, the clandestine bar Maggie Choo’s transports guests to the glamorous past of the Far East. Part cocktail bar, part cabaret, and part late-night party, the brand new Bangkok offshoot Maggie Choo’s is the vision of award-winning designer Ashley Sutton.
Sutton is known for unique spaces like Iron Fairies, The Mixing Room, and Dragonfly. His vivid imagination and extraordinary dreamscapes bring his creations to life with unparalleled craft. Maggie Choo’s is the latest from BOUTIQUE BARS, which creates immersive nightlife experiences worldwide.
Maggie Choo’s embodies Sutton’s storytelling concept, in which the eponymous Maggie Choo inherits an antique shop and discovers a hidden cabaret within. Dressed in leather and teak, Maggie Choo’s has a vintage clock, spiral staircases, and safe deposit boxes – reminiscent of an abandoned bank built by the East India Company in the mid-1800s. Dim lighting and velvet seating create an intimate mood – perfect for a late-night cap with friends.
Offering a range of entertainment, including choreographed dancers and live jazz and blue music acts throughout the night – Maggie Choo’s brings a much-needed unpredictable streak of fun and glamour to Hollywood Road.
Classic cocktails are given a modern reinterpretation, resulting in romantic prohibition-era inspired cocktails such as 'Driven by Her Dreams' with jalapeño tequila and 'Delusion' with thyme pisco. Try sharing pea guacamole, sweetcorn “ribs,” and a charcuterie board to pair with your tipple of choice.
Experience intrigue, dance, and enjoy creative tipples at Maggie Choo’s. Though the true story behind Maggie Choo’s remains shrouded in mystery, her spirit lives on in every aspect of the bar.
Where: Maggie Choo’s, Shop 1, 1-13 Hollywood Road, Central, Hong Kong
