Gin-lovers, Meet Mrs Fogg
Londoners with a penchant for mother’s ruin will be long-acquainted with Mr Fogg, intrepid adventurer and the name behind Covent Garden’s renowned gin parlour. Well, it turns out Mrs Fogg is also something of a gin fiend, and this winter she will be sailing into East London with a new bar at her maritime club and distillery. Inspired by Aouda, Phileas Fogg’s wife in Jules Verne’s classic Around the World in 80 Days, Mrs Fogg’s will serve up inventive cocktails and innovative dishes inspired by her nautical travels. The bar, complete with its own gin distillery and steamer ship, will be located in Broadgate Circle and will take guests on a fantastical adventure aboard the Rangoon Steamer. The Maritime Club will be filled with curiosities collected on Mrs Fogg’s travels, featuring cocktails inspired by the exotic flavours she encountered on her travels. In true steampunk fashion, revellers can shake their own cocktails using a custom-designed Rickshaw in the engine room. Masterclasses will also be available in the fully functioning gin distillery, with the opportunity to take home some of the in-house gin as a souvenir.
Mrs Fogg’s will open from 11am, serving up small Indian-inspired dishes until late. On Saturday afternoons cocktail enthusiasts can book into a Tiffin Tea experience, with sweet and savoury nibbles, live entertainment and eclectic cocktails.
