Squaremeal Review of Mr Fogg’s Residence ?

With every junior royal, rich Russian and gossip-column rake on speed dial, those purveyors of Sloaney good times Charlie Gilkes and Duncan Stirling (Cahoots, Bunga Bunga, Bart’s) are high-society lynchpins worth cultivating. As avowed theme-bar aficionados, the boys play a blinder with this convincingly staged interpretation of Phileas J Fogg’s madcap Mayfair mansion, stuffed to the gunnels with camp caboodle from the eccentric Victorian explorer's derring-do foreign forays. The whole fantastical set-up is a hoot: Eton boys in dapper period livery dispense plates of top tucker with 'tipsy teas' (ie. gin or Champagne cocktails in teapots), while Passepartout (Fogg's imagined French valet) preps hooch-charged puncheons, crustas, cups and long-lost recipes with colonial roots. Other wheezes include a summer garden veranda, guest bartenders, vaudeville turns and talks from adventurers such as Sir Ranulph Fiennes. As we say, these chaps are connected.

Possibly London's finest

by   platinum reviewer (125)

Oct 2014

The decor is a matter of taste, but the 'theme' is followed to the last detail. Mr Fogg's is a true rarity in London, it is not a nightclub, though much more than a mere cocktail bar. This, I guess, makes it a night spot, the kind of place many of like so much when we travel out of town. The only possible criticism is that the booking process requires a bit of patience but the atmosphere, service and drinks make up for it many times over. Around the world in 80 cocktails, as they say.
