Mr Fogg Society of Exploration includes a full-size Victoria train carriage

Mr Fogg's Society of Exploration

What: Mr Fogg's Society of Exploration

In a nutshell: Trains and cocktails

Summing it all up: It's the fifth Phileas Fogg inspired bar to hit London, this time just off the strand. Expect mad cocktails and a recreation of the Victorian era Orient express too. 


The low-down

Mr Fogg is on the move again - not long after opening the House of Botanicals in Fitzrovia, another Mr Fogg's bar is incoming. This time it's Mr Fogg's Society of Exploration, just off The Strand (taking over the spot left by Bedford and Strand). 

Expect the place to be given the Mr Fogg makeover, with a bit of late 1800's decor in the shape of the main Map Room bar in the basement. And one thing does strike us about the design - apparently, they'll have a "life-sized model of a Victorian Orient Express, complete with banquette seating and gleaming brass lamps". That's pictured above and yes, it does look rather unique.

And another addition is "The Bombay Sapphire Rube Goldberg Machine" which apparently lets you mix the drinks yourself and you can expect more mad concoctions along with that. And as for food, we're told to expect toasted crumpets, croquettes, meat and cheese boards and - if you're feeling up to it - snacks of crickets, mealworms and grasshoppers.
