A Christmas soirée

A place of exploration and adventure, Phileas J. Fogg invites thirsty adventurers to indulge in worldly Yuletide libations inside the Drawing Room  and Victorian Train Carriage. Sip on a warming Negroni from our marvellous Mechanical Mixologist contraption, as you sit back and enjoy the festive exuberance of The Society and its explorers. Boasting wood-panelled walls, warm leather seating and a ceiling adorned in eclectic memorabilia, the new and improved Society of Exploration is simply the perfect setting for your Christmas soirée!

Private Christmas Parties

Guests can enjoy festive gatherings in the Train Carriage – the life-size model of a Victorian train carriage is perfect for seated and standing Christmas parties, complete with banquette seating, brass lamps and windows overlooking the bar area.

Full venue hire: From 20 to 200 guests

Explorers Den hire: Up to 40 guests
Train Carriage hire: Up to 25 guests

New Year's Eve

Passepartout invites yours truly to join us for a tipple at The Society of Exploration. Sip on a complimentary welcome libation and enjoy a late-night light bite to keep you going into the new year – with the option of The Society’s usual food menu and a special NYE cocktail menu also available to order.

Bunny Nightingale will be performing her marvellous melodies throughout the evening. And just after the stroke of midnight, we have a live DJ set until the early hours, starting with a joyous rendition of Auld Lang Syne and a countdown into the new year. The doors to The Society will remain open until 3:01am!
