Bunga Bunga at Queens!

By | News | No Comments

This summer it was game, set, match for Bunga Bunga, as we popped up at the internationally renowned Queens Club. The Bunga Enclosure became the perfect player’s lounge, with an Italian courtyard, miniature tennis tables and of course a good dose of tongue-in-cheek decor. Guests could sit back and relax, in between watching the pros. Partnering with Grey Goose we had a selection of refreshing signature serves, such as the Grey Goose Le Grandissimo Fizz.

Three new Mr Fogg’s bars to open in 2018

By | News | No Comments

It’s a very exciting year for Inception Group as we prepare to double the amount of venues currently under the Fogg’s brand, with three opening this year alone. The first, ‘blooming’ around June, is Mr Fogg’s House of Botanicals – a bright, spacious bar, bedecked in flora and fauna and housing Mr Fogg’s vast collection of botanicals acquired on his many trips around the globe.

The second will be opening its doors around September in the heart of the City, in Broadgate Circle, Liverpool Street. It will be a twist on the Mr Fogg’s brand, called Mrs Fogg’s, and is a tribute to Mr Fogg’s wife Aouda who originated from India. The venue will incorporate touches of India, reflecting the culture both in its decor and in its menu; the bar will also serve delicious Indian small plates.

Then, in autumn, the exciting and highly experiential Mr Fogg’s Society of Exploration will be opening in Bedford Street, Charing Cross – near the location where Mr Fogg initially set off on his journey around the world in 80 days. The Society of Exploration will be exactly that – a venue dedicated to exploring. It will focus on travel, housing a Map Room where guests can plan both short and long trips. It will also be taking guests on an exploration of the senses, with an exciting and unique drinks menu. And, hints of the impending industrial revolution will be largely prominent in the venue, with automated contraptions and an incredible cocktail creating machine.

By | News | No Comments

On the 15th of January 2018, all members of Inception Group were invited down to our newest venue Bunga Bunga Covent Garden for The Inception Group Company Conference 2018! Reflecting on a brilliant 2017, we discussed plans for the upcoming year, alongside some interesting motivational activities. Engaging in a group-wide Mexican wave, a 9am ‘Bunga Bunga’ dance and an incredible lesson on Ghanaian drumming, it was quite the day! It’s safe to say, when 150 people are up doing a Conga line by 11am, it’s been a successful day for company morale…

With live music, magician, and face-painter, alongside delicious canapés and lip-smackingly good cocktails, the ‘Inceptionauts’ were able to pat themselves on the back and let their ‘beach-waved hair’ down after the madness of Christmas and New Year!
