Mr Fogg's House of Botanicals Review

Top 10 things to know about Mr Fogg’s House of Botanicals:

1) It’s inevitable that the ever-intrepid traveller, Phileas Fogg, would encounter, collect and amass a vast collection of the world’s most exotic plants on his worldly expeditions. Naturally, Phileas has found an establishment in Fitzrovia to house his vast collection of botanicals.

2) Large windows allow the avidly inquisitive among us to marvel at Phileas’s stunning hoard. Let your eyes wander the high ceiling, which allows the tallest of stems to soar.

3) Mr Fogg welcomes all; even those without a reservation. Walk-in, perch yourself at the bar downstairs and observe the beauty of the botanicals around, tipple of choice in hand. If you have an appointment, Mr Fogg invites you to sample some of his exotic libations upstairs. Up the spiral staircase you go, where you’ll be welcomed into a cosy Victorian-style drawing room which is decorated with antique chandeliers, ornate lamps, and walls adorned with oil paintings of great Victorian botanists. Sink back onto your plush armchair and make yourself at home.

4) Detail is everything at the Fogg household: the beautiful Victorian furnishings; the elegantly designed menu; the pleasant household staff, welcoming in every way.

5) Mr Fogg’s botanists conjure up some of the most interesting libations. These liquid refreshments are inspired by exotic plants, and with idiosyncratic names to boot. Ask Anna for assistance in picking the right drink. There are 60-odd to choose from. Audacious explorers who have visited Mr Fogg’s Residence bar in Mayfair will be pleased to see their favourite tipples feature on the menu. However, challenge yourself, take a risk, browse the special menu that is only available to patrons with a reservation at the House of Botanicals.

6) The Cherry Blossom and the Red Rose are the popular choices, but the Viola hits the sweet spot too with it’s creamy and sour taste of gin, herbal liqueur, crème de violette liqueur, yoghurt powder, chamomile, lemon curd and egg white. For something a little potent, the Clock Tower is reserved for those who thirst for a woody, earthy drink. Observe, linger even, over the floral concoction before enjoying a swig.

7) The Victorians loved theatrics so prepare to be awe-inspired. Besides the quirky cocktail names, the presentation is a true wonder. Some drinks arrive in quaint teacups, much like the creamy and rich Seal the Deal; some arrive smoking at your table, such as The Illusionist; others have a tall stem glass, such as The Emperor’s Honeymoon.

8) The blooming collection of Mr Fogg’s Victorian cocktail bars in London has always been made for the adventurous at heart. Soak up the atmosphere and the sound of your fellow botanists chattering excitedly around you. Thankfully, the noise level is not overwhelming so you can have conversations with your drinking partner without bellowing - ideal for a tete-a-tete with old (and new) friends.

9) Mr Fogg is a generous host. Larger groups of friends are well cared for. Plant enthusiasts can telegram (or email/ring, if you prefer), to reserve an entire floor for a special party.

10) With so much to learn, and being the bold explorer that I am, this is one safe haven for all adventurers and insatiably curious to escape to. Mr Fogg’s is a delightful addition to the central London bar scene.
