Located on Brook Street directly opposite the iconic hotel, Claridge’s, the elegant and witty space transports guests into Phileas Foggs wonderfully eccentric world. A grand staircase leads to an impressive well-stocked long bar with the main drawing room decked out in eccentric faux Victoriana with grandfather clocks, large armchairs and sofas and curiosity cabinets.
The Apothecary sets out to showcase the vast array of 'potions and elixirs' that Jules Verne’s most well-loved fictional character, Phileas Fogg collected whilst on his epic 80 day voyage around the world. Expect carefully crafted classic cocktails and concoctions served from costumed staff.
With its own separate entrance is the Elixir Room which houses 24 Hennessy cabinets, each with their own unique key locks available to regulars to house their own bottles of spirits within. It can be hired privately but within the cabinet wall there is also a secret door into the main space. This cosy backroom has three large wallpapered booths which offer a perfect place to hide away and sample Fogg’s most restorative tipples.
The Traveller’s Tonic made with Hennessy X.O. Cognac, Woodford Reserve Rye whiskey, Carpano Antica Formula vermouth, Grand Marnier & Mr Fogg’s Apothecary bitters and the Rose Remedy with Secret Garden Apothecary Rose gin, Lillet Blanc, Apothecary shrub, rose water, lime juice & egg white.
