In October 2019, we expanded our subterranean 1940s bar, Cahoots, with two new unique spaces located right next door on Kingly Street – Cahoots Ticket Hall & Control Room! Inspired by an abandoned train station, The Ticket Hall pays tribute to what previously lay there, with a giant station clock, old split-flap timetables and fading train maps and vintage advertisements peeling off the wall. Hidden beneath the Ticket Hall sits the Control Room. Head down the ‘danger’ marked staircase and into what was once an ‘out-of-bounds’ area for all passengers, that has been transformed into an industrial, quirky speakeasy-style bar, perfect for entertaining and throwing illicit shindigs!

We are very proud to announce that Mr Fogg’s Tavern has come first place for ‘Best Pub in London’ in the London Lifestyle Awards 2019! Inspired by Phileas Fogg’s fictional travels around the world, our Victorian-style pub in Covent Garden is famous for its lively atmosphere, draft beers & ales, hearty lunches and our Instagrammable seasonal flower displays.
Our 80s-themed Chelsea nightclub, Maggie’s, has also won ‘Runner-Up Best Late-Night Venue’ and Mr Fogg’s won overall ‘Runner-Up Best Venue’ for all six venues!
