Mr Fogg’s Residence
Mr Fogg’s Residence arrived in Mayfair in the summer of 2013. A recreation of the actual home of Jules Verne’s most famous adventurer, Phileas Fogg. Mr Fogg’s was the first West End project from Inception Group. Modelled on the very Mayfair house in which Phileas Fogg would have lived after travelling Around the World in 80 Days, the bar is refined but at the same time truly off-the-wall, breathing liveliness and fun into the West End. Guests are able to encounter all the wonders of the world without setting foot outside of London.
As a private man, Mr Fogg’s home is of course well hidden down a small side street off Berkeley Square thus maintaining an element of secrecy like The Inception Group’s bar, Barts, the first speakeasy to open in London in 2009.

Mr Fogg’s Gin Parlour
Accessed through a secluded side door on New Row, Mr Fogg’s Gin Parlour and Salon was once the refined parlour and salon to Phileas Fogg’s beloved late aunt and acclaimed actress, Gertrude Fogg, who left her humble abode to her nephew. The Gin Parlour is home to London’s largest gin collection, consisting of more than 300 of the most unique, interesting and rare gins from all around the globe.
