Like the legendary Maggie Choo herself, Maggie Choo’s at 101 serves bold dishes that are full of gusto and that adventurous spirit. Step past the streetlights and the dark doors and into an abundance of textures: coloured tiles and intricately sculpted wood. The bar itself is vast and stocked with top class liquor. The bar is dotted with an impressive amount of detail that gives the place its soul. Maggie Choo’s is a free-spirited celebration of bright colours, outlandish textures and extravagant florals. Here, blues, yellows, reds and greens rule the roost with colourful chairs, a bar that glows a vibrant green, luxurious velvet drapes and walls entirely covered with flowers. It’s a party for all the senses.
If you hear whispers of secret passageways behind the walls,
secret cocktail bars or secret gardens — know that it’s all true.
Daily specials, lunch and brunch are available, along with party platters and bottle service. Brunch is served from 12-6pm on Sunday’s while the daily food offerings are served from 12-9pm with dishes such as garlic prawns or calamari that comes with a lemon and basil dip. You can move on to some guilty pleasures, like the breaded buttermilk chicken or why not go the whole way with a beef, chicken or veggie burger.
Our tip is to also get your hands into the “Durty” Fries (Options such as Crispy fries with taco beef, garlic mayo, mixed peppers, melted cheese or Bacon and Cheese Fries, Jalapeno Fries, they are sinfully fantastic).
In a fun-loving place like this, it’d be rude not to order an equally fun cocktail. Their own imaginative creations include a “Most Unusual Daiquiri”, “Terry’s Dream” and “Sin-Less” which is a fragrant mix of lavender, strawberry and lychee.
