The inimitable Maggie Choo’s in Silom is celebrating its 3 year anniversary tonight with a The Spy Who Loved Me party.
For most, Maggie Choo’s legend started just 3 years ago.
The story really began in 1931, on the fateful night that Margaret Choo – then a cabaret dancer in Shanghai – met a Japanese officer with whom she fell in love, then later murdered after finding out he was a spy.
Her exile to Bangkok led to the opening of her own cabaret. This tale of love, lust and murder is the backdrop to the jazz club’s 3rd anniversary celebrations.
Hosted by Pangina Heals, the party starts at 8pm and boasts a ‘dress to kill’ dresscode.
The DJ lineup features sets from Fred Canal, Alex Fischer and Scott Hess while you can enjoy buy 1 get 1 free promos on bottles of Belvedere Vodka, Johnnie Walker Blue and Moët & Chandon (until midnight).
It’s free entry until 10pm and reservations can be made via firstname.lastname@example.org.

Maggie Choo’s – located under the Novotel Fenix at the end of the Silom Road – is one of Bangkok’s most beloved bars. Sporting incredibly lavish decor in the style of 1930s Shanghai with a touch of colonialism – it’s supposedly in the underground vault of the East India Company Bank – it’s another bar from the mind of design maestro Ashley Sutton, the man who brought us Iron Faeries.
An impressive cocktail list and adjoining Chinese noodle restaurant – through which you enter the bar – complete the scene.
The crowd is usually a mix of the hiso party crowd, expats in the know, and the Silom execs craving an after-work escape. We’re sure they’ll all be out tonight in celebration.
