Bar Of The Week: Absinthe Aperitifs At Mr Fogg's

Phileas Fogg has returned from his travels and he’s set up camp in Mayfair… well thats sort of the idea.

Charlie Gilkes and Duncan Stirling, owners of nightclubs Bunga Bunga, Barts and Maggie’s have opened their latest venture - Mr Fogg’s.

Laden with artefacts collected from his travels, drinkers can try Absinthe Aperitifs, Gin Fizzes and Stirrup Cups in surroundings most notable for the stuffed Indian tigers and crocodiles.

'Bacchanologist' Mark Jenner (formerly Bar Manager of The Coburg Bar at The Connaught Hotel) likes to throw in the rare and unusual into his drinks to keep things interesting.

Mr Fogg’s, 15 Bruton Lane, London W1J 6JD
