We are delighted to announce that our new Victorian Pawnbrokers will officially be opening this Wednesday 22nd February, welcoming walk-ins and taking bookings every Wednesday to Sunday – and opening seven days a week very soon.

Located at 50 Dean Street, this adventurous new Soho cocktail bar will be the mysterious Victorian ‘pawn shop’ of Phileas Fogg’s wayward half-brother, Frank Fogg. Made up of three spaces – The Pawnbrokers Counter, The Strong Room and The Textiles Store – it will exhibit an extraordinary collection of eccentric cocktails, cabinets of second-hand curiosities and peculiar pledged possessions collected from around the world. Bookings are now open from Wednesday 22nd February HERE.
We look forward to welcoming you to our very first Mr Fogg’s site in Soho!
A few years ago, we sent cocktails to space. This year, we dropped them to the bottom of the sea for 193 hours – presenting Mr Fogg’s first ever sea-aged cocktail! Joining forces with Hendrick’s Neptunia Gin, the Inception Group Marketing Team had lots of fun producing this video in Devon this summer and overseeing the activation from start to finish.
This limited-edition nautical cocktail was available exclusively throughout October at specific Mr Fogg’s venues, served inside small treasure chests – just like the one Mr Fogg had ‘discovered’ under the sea! Thank you to all the adventurers who tested the waters and tried it themselves. Read more about the story behind Mr Fogg’s nautical discovery here.
In August 2022, we were overjoyed to have become the new leaseholders of 50 Dean Street, Soho, where we will be opening a NEW Mr Fogg’s in early 2023.
We are very excited to be bringing Mr Fogg’s to such a prime location in Soho and we can’t wait to reveal the very unique concept that we’ve imagined for this space.
Stay tuned in the new year to find out more about our eighth Mr Fogg’s venue!
Mr Fogg’s was proud to pop up once again in London, this time the household of Phileas J. Fogg erected a Safari Camp in Regent’s Park for the world’s greatest restaurant festival with a British-colonial style tent filled with globes, maps and a taxidermy collection from various safari’s in Africa. Guests at the festival enjoyed World Class libations and a separate gin & tonic tent where a specialty barman from Mr Fogg’s Gin Parlour imparted his knowledge on the fine art of concocting the perfect gin & tonic with several flavoured tonics and botanicals.
We look forward to returning to Taste Of London in 2017!
Photos from the launch of the Safari Camp can be found on Mr Fogg’s Facebook page.

This summer Victorian-inspired Mayfair bar Mr Fogg’s will unveil a quintessentially British garden overflowing with beautiful blooms, botanicals and bric-a-brac. The Hendrick’s Botanical Garden will be the perfect place for ladies and gentlemen to take the air and while away the long summer evenings beneath the stars. The Hendrick’s Botanical Garden will be a secret oasis, tucked away down a secluded side street in Mayfair, where guestswill encounter all the wonders of the world without setting foot outside London.
Avid botanists will marvel at the plants, artifacts and oddities collected by the eccentric explorer on his travels in Around the World in 80 Days. A bijou space, the new garden will feature lush foliage, herbs and classical Italian terracotta, so popular with Victorians returning from their ‘Grand Tours’. Dainty ratan-aged and marble-topped garden furniture, colonial blinds and ceiling fans will transport guests back to the days when plant enthusiasts such as Mr Fogg scoured the British Empire for new and exotic flora and fauna to send home. Guests will enjoy an elegant al fresco drinking adventure on each occasion with an enticing array of Hendrick’s Gin cocktails. This marvellous spirit is infused with the twin essences of rose and cucumber to create a delightfully floral aroma, the perfect tipple for a summer garden. Teapot sharers will include: A Symphony of Peculiar Deliciousness made with Hendrick’s Gin, rose-infused jasmine tea syrup, Briottet bergamot liqueur, lychee juice and lime juice; and We Have Them By The Junipers! A zingy concoction of Hendrick’s Gin, Isake Classic sake, St Germain elderflower liqueur, apple juice, lime juice and fresh cucumber.
