    A place of wonder and imagination, Mr. Fogg's Residence in the heart of Mayfair welcomes you to embark on a remarkable journey into the adventurous world of Phileas J. Fogg. As you approach this hidden gem, tucked away just behind Berkeley Square, the sense of exclusivity is palpable, reminiscent of a private members club, with the closed front door that demands a knock or a pull of the bell.

    Once inside, you step into the famous Drawing Room, a realm where time seems to stand still. The room is adorned with polished wooden panelled walls, setting the stage for the breathtaking backdrop of a vast and rare collection of artefacts. These treasures have been gathered from the far corners of the earth, and they adorn the walls, shelves, and even the ceiling of his London residence. The room feels like a living museum, a testament to Fogg's global adventures, featuring everything from exotic creatures to intricate statuettes. It's a visual feast that sets the tone for the unique experience that awaits.

    The adventure at Mr. Fogg's Residence begins with their impeccable selection of cocktails. For my first, I chose the “Burlington Martini”, a refreshing concoction comprising Grey Goose L’Original vodka, crisp cucumber, zesty fresh lime juice, a hint of sugar, and the invigorating essence of fresh mint. This cocktail was a delightful start to the evening, perfectly balanced and refreshingly crisp.

    "It's a place where every sip and every sight is a testament to the art of storytelling through cocktails and decor, making it a must-visit for anyone seeking an unforgettable evening of exploration and indulgence."

    My partner's initial choice was “The Royal Albert Hall”, a majestic creation blending Bombay Sapphire gin, Chambord black raspberry liqueur, pineapple tepache, pomegranate juice, and the effervescence of Moët & Chandon Impérial Blanc N.V. Champagne. The Royal Albert Hall was a regal and effervescent libation that captured the essence of celebratory luxury.

    For our next round, I opted for the “Spicy Rupee”, featuring Vanilla-infused Smirnoff Black No. 55 Small Batch vodka, a touch of chilli-infused elderflower cordial, freshly squeezed lime juice, and honey water. The Spicy Rupee brought a delightful heat to the palate, balanced by the sweetness of elderflower and honey, creating a uniquely enticing experience.

    Meanwhile, my partner indulged in a classic “Negroni”, masterfully composed with Gordon’s London Dry gin, Campari, and Vermouth. This classic cocktail was expertly crafted, embodying the timeless appeal of a Negroni.

    For our final choices, I savoured the “Accendit Cantu”, a captivating blend of Secret Garden Apothecary Rose gin, Choya sake, lychee wine, homemade raspberry and cider cordial, fresh lime juice, and the alluring essence of pandan leaf syrup. The Accendit Cantu was a symphony of flavours, offering a delightful fusion of floral and fruity notes.

    Concluding the evening, my partner delighted in the “Perfect Timing”, an exquisite mixture of Patrón Silver tequila, Cointreau orange liqueur, pink grapefruit juice, freshly squeezed lime juice, and the intriguing touch of chipotle chilli-infused hibiscus syrup. This cocktail was a perfect crescendo to our evening, with a delightful hint of spice complementing the vibrant citrus notes.

    In all aspects, Mr. Fogg's Residence excelled in delivering an exceptional and immersive cocktail experience. The detail in both the drinks and the decor created an ambiance that transported us to the world of Phileas J. Fogg's adventures. Each libation was a work of art, masterfully crafted and perfectly balanced. The staff at the residence demonstrated a profound knowledge of their craft and a passion for delivering a memorable evening.

    For those seeking a truly unique and enchanting cocktail adventure, Mr. Fogg's Residence in Mayfair stands as an unrivalled destination. With its opulent ambiance, a remarkable collection of artefacts, and an array of delectable libations, it offers an experience that transcends the ordinary and allows guests to journey into the fantastical world of Phileas J. Fogg. It's a place where every sip and every sight is a testament to the art of storytelling through cocktails and decor, making it a must-visit for anyone seeking an unforgettable evening of exploration and indulgence.
