Award winning bar brand, Mr Fogg’s is hosting a quintessentially British pop-up abode throughout the festive season – serving an array of World Class cocktails, transporting guests into the heart of a truly Dickensian Christmas, complete with Victorian-inspired decor and hearty honest fare.
Expect a magnificent Christmas trees covered in the finest Victorain decorations, a shimmering yuletide garland draped around the bar and the grandest of homemade chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. Reminiscent of Mr Fogg’s Residence in Mayfair, the walls are adorned with everything from taxidermy to an array of eccentric ornaments collected during his Around the World in 80 Days voyage. Elsewhere a cosy fireplace serves as a refuge from the more clamorous hurly burly of the festival outside.
Guests are taken on an elegant world-class experience from the moment they step forth on their sojourn journey inside the fine establishment, featuring wonderfully restorative cocktails including Hot Buttered Rum and Hot Toddy tipples as well as Mr Fogg’s morning libation of choice, Bloody Mary’s. There will also be an array of signature serves inspired by his travels around the globe and comforting brews including Lagers, Ciders, Ales and Luscious porters.
From Monday-Thursday afternoons, guests may partake in Phileas’s favourite Victorian past-time, afternoon tea, infused with Tanqueray No. TEN of course, alongside an array of sandwiches, cakes and pastries, beautifully presented on traditional three-tiered stands and served on embossed china. During the day, budding cocktail connoisseurs will have the chance to learn more about the craft of cocktail making with master classes and one-on-one sessions with a team of talented mixologists.
