Mrs Fogg’s Maritime Club & Distillery
Mrs Fogg’s is inspired by Mr Fogg’s better half - his Indian wife, Aouda. On the ground floor sits The Maritime Club, which pays homage to India with its delicate decorative touches and sophisticated, elegant furnishings.
Perfect for walk-ins, The Maritime Club is a space where weary sailors or thirsty patrons can dock their boats, wet their whistles, and even take a seat in the Club’s lifeboat. Anchored next to the Club is the life-size Rangoon Steamer. Complete with beautiful curtained compartments and equipped with its own bar, passengers can board the ship and step back in time onto the Steamer that Aouda and Phileas Fogg entered London on.
Hidden away below deck is The Engine Room and Distillery. Below deck is where the crew play havoc, as precious cargo is unearthed by the Stowaways and the floor is transformed into a raucous speakeasy-style bar with live entertainment. Guests can revel on the main floor, or for some privacy, frolic with friends in The Engine Room. Inside this, sits The Distillery - an industrial beauty and a vision of Victorian innovation. This fully-functioning machine will create Mrs Fogg’s very own gin elixir.

Head below deck for this Gin Distillery adventure.
Sneaking past the upper-class gentry on Mrs Fogg’s Victorian steamship, you’ll be led by a team of stowaways to the Engine Room, which has been fashioned into a highly illicit gin distillery. After a welcome cocktail and an introduction to gin production from the grumpy Engine Master, you’ll work together to earn your safe passage aboard the ship, tasked to produce your own gin using a miniature engine distillery. With different flavours and botanicals, you’ll create a unique batch of hooch. Test its quality in a G&T, before taking home a personalised bottle of gin – an evocative reminder of life below deck.
This experience runs at Mrs Fogg's in Broadgate Circle every Saturday at 1:01pm and again from 3:31pm. Prices start at £60pp.
