Society of Exploration


For adventurers and like-minded folk who wish to push the boundaries of the ordinary.

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.

Past Midnight Society

Every Thursday to Saturday until 2.01am

As the clock strikes midnight, The Society of Exploration comes alive! Open until the early hours, step foot inside Phileas’ low-lit subterranean speakeasy bar in London’s Covent Garden.

Perfect for those with a penchant for the world’s finest libations, Phileas J. Fogg invites you to clink your glasses and make merry with your Society fellows late into the night. From enchanting smoking cocktails to the most extraordinary vessels, drink your way through a truly imaginative menu of spirits and elixirs from the farthest corners of the globe.

Revel in the lively buzzing atmosphere of the dimly-lit Drawing Room, our life-size Train Carriage and the adventurous Map Room – a place where famed explorers have frequented throughout the years, and where their spirit of adventure still remains!
