Mr Fogg's Society of Exploration opens in London's West End
The Inception Group have opened their fifth Mr Fogg's venue, The Society of Exploration on Bedford Street, just off the Strand in London’s West End.
The new venue will celebrate exploration and adventure, taking guests on a journey inspired by Around The World in 80 Days.
The Society of Exploration is located just a stone’s throw away from Charing Cross station, where Phileas J. Fogg embarked upon his journey around the world.
A place of exploration and adventure, the Society of Exploration boasts wood-panelled walls, warm leather seating and shelves laden with eccentric artefacts. Guests can enjoy intimate gatherings in the Map Room, housing an impressive collection of antique maps, travel books, souvenirs and more.
Alongside the bar lies the Orient Express – the life-size model of a Victorian train carriage is perfect for seated and standing events, complete with banquette seating, brass lamps and windows overlooking the bar area.
The full venue can hold 220 guests, the map room 35 and 25 people in train carriage.
