Mr Fogg’s Residence
The original charming cocktail residence in Mayfair – inspired by Jules Verne’s eccentric British adventurer Phileas J Fogg – now boasts two sister locations in London, the Covent Garden tavern and the recently opened gin parlor. Expect tantalising tipples, weird and wonderful artefacts, and the audiobook of Verne’s Around The World In 80 Days playing in the bathrooms.
On Wednesday the 2nd of October 1872, Phileas J. Fogg, Esq. embarked upon his journey around the world. He had wagered with fellow members of the Reform Club that he would be able to complete this trip within eighty days. They thought him mad, but Fogg was quite the gambling man. He was well-versed in the game of whist and not one who enjoyed losing… nor to be found wrong. He was, therefore, determined to prove them wrong and complete his trip around the world in eighty days.
