What is it?
This April, as part of their renowned Explorer Series, Mayfair-based bar Mr Fogg’s will team up with award-winning adventurer Alistair Humphreys.
Humphreys will be visiting Mr Fogg’s on Monday 24th April, to reflect on his incredible four-year bicycle journey around the world. Guests of Mr Fogg’s will be invited to mentally escape the busy streets of London and transport themselves to more remote territories; as Humphreys tells his tales collected from far away lands, and reveals exactly how he became crowned National Geographic Adventurer of the Year 2012.
Mr Fogg’s is a recreation of the Victorian home of Jules Verne’s most famous adventurer, Phileas Fogg. Modelled on the very Mayfair house in which Fogg would have lived after travelling Around the World in 80 Days, the bar is refined but at the same time truly off-the-wall, breathing liveliness and fun into the area.
