Society of Exploration

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

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. 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.
