Inception Group - the company behind Mr Fogg's, Cahoots, Barts and other concept bars - has announced Mr Fogg’s Apothecary will launch this June in Mayfair.
Following the Victoriana, exploration theme, Mr Fogg's Apothecary aims to “showcase the vast array of potions and elixirs that Jules Verne’s most well-loved fictional character, Phileas Fogg collected whilst on his epic 80 day voyage around the world”.
The Brook Street venue, directly opposite Claridge’s, will see a “grand staircase” lead guests down to a room decked out in in Victorian-era décor, with decorative features including a long apothecary-themed bar, with weighing scales, grandfather clocks and walls lined with portraits of scientists, botanists and pharmacists
It joins the group’s other London venues: Mr Fogg's Residence and Mr Fogg’s Secret Garden in Mayfair, Mr Fogg’s Gin Parlour, Mr Fogg's Society of Exploration and Mr Fogg's Tavern in Covent Garden, Mr Fogg's House of Botanicals in Fitzrovia and Mrs Fogg's Dockside Drinkery & Distillery in Liverpool Street.
Among the cocktails at Inception Group's latest venue will be The Traveller’s Tonic, a mix of Hennessy XO cognac, Woodford Reserve Rye whiskey, Carpano Antica Formula vermouth, Grand Marnier orange liqueur and Mr Fogg’s Apothecary bitters while the Rose Remedy sees Secret Garden Apothecary Rose gin, Lillet Blanc, Apothecary shrub, rose water, lime juice and egg white.
Opening Tuesday to Saturday, 4pm-midnight initially, Mr Fogg’s Apothecary can be found at 34 Brook Street, London, W1K 5DN.
