Square Meal Review of Mr Fogg's ?

In lesser hands, the idea of theming a bar around ’eccentric British adventurer Phileas J Fogg's Mayfair mansion’ might have been a Hi-de-Hi! horror, but Messrs Gilkes and Strong are old stagers at this kind of thing – witness Barts and Bunga Bunga. Filled with wacky booty, supposedly from Fogg’s colonial forays, this (almost) convincing Victorian gentlemen’s club is great fun, particularly when it comes to cocktails with evocative names like Penny-Farthing and Platinum Pocket Watch (vodka, pink grapefruit juice, Cointreau and maraschino). Drinks are proffered to guests by their own personal Passepartout, one of a battalion of Eton-fringed boys in period livery. Prices are distinctly un-Victorian: Crimean Cup (a sharing punchbowl) requires an investment of £110, while a half-bottle of Krug with a couple of toff’s toasties or similar tiffin weighs in at £95.

  1. Someone I know has a date tonight, and was planning to head out in Mayfair, seeking out a bar that was nice but nothing too fancy schmansy, something quirky too. Different. Of course, they asked me for recommendations (who wouldn’t?) and in a heartbeat, I had just the place.

    Bruton Lane is probably the grimmest part of Mayfair, winding its way off the South-Eastern corner of Berkeley Square. If you head down there, you’ll come across Mr. Fogg’s, but keep your eyes peeled because the place is missable, with only a couple of windows, invitingly glowing away, and an immaculately tailored doorman to give you...
