If you thought you’d collected a lot of crap on your holidays, wait until you see Mr Fogg’s. This place is literally stuffed with the detritus of the fictional Victorian explorer of the name: every wall is covered with hunting rifles, stuffed animals, weathered flags and maps. All right, these are just the imaginary souvenirs of an imaginary traveller, but that doesn’t make the profusion of clutter any less dazzling – or any less fun.
It'd be easy for cocktails to take second place with an interior like this, but at Mr Fogg's the seriously knowledgeable bar staff make sure they're punchy, exciting and altogether sensational. It’s not cheap – this is Mayfair, after all – but for sheer spectacle Mr Fogg's is hard to beat.
