Mr Fogg’s Society of Exploration

OPENED 66 DAYS AGO

The award-winning Inception Group adds another bar to its Mr Fogg’s empire: Mr Fogg’s Society of Exploration.

This time, travel is the central theme running through the cocktail bar, so it’s only fitting Mr Fogg’s Society of Exploration is located just a stone’s throw from Charing Cross station – the start of Phileas Fogg’s adventure.

The Spot:

Taking you on an adventure across the world, the new Mr Fogg’s Society of Exploration is a true travel hub. A rotating globe greets you at the lobby, while downstairs boasts an eclectic selection of souvenirs, maps and comfortable banquette seating (travelling can be tiresome, you know). But this wouldn’t be a Mr Fogg’s establishment without some not-so-unexpected twists. With just one click of a button, a mechanical machine triggers a train reaction that makes your drinks – look at you, Rube Goldberg 2.0.

The Food:

Mr Fogg’s Society of Exploration serves shareable bites rather than large mains, including meat and cheese boards, croquettes and toasted crumpets. Feeling adventurous? Help yourself to a selection of crickets, mealworms or grasshoppers – yes, you read that right.

The Drinks:

Presented in an innovative, multi-sensory menu, cocktails are globally inspired and dedicated to nine extraordinary areas of the planet. Mr Fogg’s Society of Exploration promises to bring the heat of the Sahara Desert (think rum-based cocktail with apricot and fig ketchup, cinnamon and paprika or vodka with absinthe and burnt lemon) and take you into the depths of the rainforest (with Mancino Rosso Amaranto vermouth, pandanus leaves and chocolate bitters or Oxley gin, pale ale beer and citric solution). Whatever you choose, it’s definitely going to be a memorable trip.

The Damage:

Prices range from around £9.50 to £12.

In a Nutshell:

It’s safe to say Inception Group has big plans for London’s cocktail scene; Mr Fogg’s House of Botanicals launched not too long ago, and now they’ve added Mr Fogg’s Society of Exploration to their sought-after collection. We’re extremely happy we could host two weeks of exclusive soft launch evenings for Just Opened readers, and want to thank you for your excitement and support! Stay tuned for more…
