Mrs Fogg's Maritime Club and Distillery

November sees the newest addition to the Mr Fogg’s family and this time it’s inspired by his other half, Phileas Fogg’s Indian wife - Aouda and her nautical travels. Complete with it’s own gin distillery and steamer ship, right in the heart of Shoreditch, we’re expecting this new bar to be as popular as the other Mr Fogg’s residences.

You’ll find Mrs Fogg’s Maritime Club and Distillery in Broadgate Circle, just a short sail from Liverpool Street. Step aboard and be taken on a fantastical journey aboard the Rangoon Steamer, which the adventurous Aouda has travelled back to England on, bringing with her exotic flavours, ingredients and relics to add to her Maritime Club’s collection of curiosities.

The main bar is on the ground floor is surrounded by lush foliage, large wooden fans and antique nautical items where they’ll be serving up Indian-spiced cocktails to share your traveller tales over.  

Downstairs, guests will discover the engine room - a secret space filled with all sorts of cargo, crates and stowaways. Taking center stage will be a custom-designed Rickshaw, courtesy of Monkey Shoulder, for cocktail-enthusiasts to pedal and shake their way to cocktail bliss and create their own signature concoctions. Also tucked away below deck will lie Mrs Fogg’s fully working gin distillery, which will be modelled on the underground Victorian distilleries of the period. Having learnt the secrets of botanicals, herbs and ingredients involved in the distillation process whilst on her travels, Aouda is keen to pass on her knowledge to groups who will help her to produce her own in-house gin, which can also be taken home as a souvenir as a part of the regular masterclasses available.

The menu at Mrs Fogg’s will evoke Aouda’s memories of home, with all the flavours and fragrances of the Asian continent. Her household staff, clad immaculately in authentic yet contemporary naval attire, will offer a cocktail menu that will ignite curiosity, shake the senses and warm the soul. Lush libations will include new discoveries such as, Ta-Ta’s Margarita, a twist on a classic with turmeric-infused Cabrito Blanco tequila, Rinomato Americano Blanco, Chili-infused Honey, Lime, Starfruit & Grapefruit Tonic and A Mumbai Donkey, a mouthwatering mix of Cardamom-infused Russian Standard Vodka, Pear, Parsley and Ginger beer.

Small plates inspired by the continent will also be on offer, so you can tuck into Keralan Fried Chicken and Mini Mango Salads, to Sweet Potato Pani Puri and Jackfruit Biryani presented in traditional Indian tiffin boxes. On Saturday afternoons, a Tiffin Tea experience comprised of sweet and savoury bites served in Dabbawala tins, live entertainment, and eclectic cocktails will be available to book. An expansive outdoor terrace with aged canvas umbrellas, warm wooden furniture and exotic plants will provide a verdant oasis in the middle of bustling Broadgate.
