The 20 most beautiful bars in London

Mr Fogg’s Salon

The brainchild of Charlie Gilkes and Duncan Stirling of the Inception Group, Mr Fogg’s Salon, above the equally eccentric Mr Fogg’s Tavern in Covent Garden, is inspired by the adventures of Phileas Fogg in Jules Verne’s Around the World in 80 Days.

With its swagged velvet curtains, Victorian fireplace, sumptuous chaise longues and shiny silver punch bowls, when you step inside if feels like going back in time. The bar is the fictional home of Fogg’s actress aunt Gertrude and her housekeeper Fanny McGee.

The story goes that aunt Gertrude bequeathed Fogg a pied-à-terre on St. Martin’s Lane in her will, which he allowed her housekeeper to turn into a tavern, keeping the salon on the first floor to himself. Old portraits, frilly lampshades and hanging hats add to its homely feel.
