NOW OPEN!

Welcoming you back

Mr Fogg is delighted to announce that The Society of Exploration is now OPEN every Wednesday to Saturday, with a new and improved ceiling adorned with the most eccentric of memorabilia from around the world. Upon reopening our fabled doors, our top priority is ensuring a safe environment for our guests and staff. Our full safety measures are available here.

Exploratory Libations

Come and encounter all means of exploration, as you bear witness to the fruits of British industrial revolution in the form of new-fangled machinery and the bold experimentations of mixology; all taking place within The Society of Exploration.

Mr Fogg's Society of Exploration

The Society of Exploration: a sanctuary for those more curious than most; those who wish to push the boundaries of the ordinary, who hope to test the limits of travel, adventure and Victorian-mechanics. Phileas J. Fogg, Esq. invites explorers, scientists and like-minded individuals to join his Society of Exploration in our united pursuit of revolutionary innovation.

You will find The Society of Exploration a stone’s throw away from the location that Mr Fogg embarked upon his infamous journey around the world: the bustling Charing Cross station. The bar will house an impressive selection of worldly libations. Society fellows may travel the world via the portals of their taste-buds, sampling elixirs sourced from the farthest corners of the globe. Explorers – past, present and future – may plan their next quests with the assistance of our in-house expert, located in the Map Room.

Venue Hire

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 Train Carriage – 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.
