Summer SafariTake a trip to Africa via Covent Garden this summer with the Summer Safari at Mr Fogg's Society of Exploration. Just as the weather starts to, hopefully, get a little warmer, the theatrical cocktail bar is also raising the temperature by transforming into a setting reminiscent of the African Sahara. Created in partnership with Whitley Neil gin, the immersive experience will see the venue decked out in vines, plants and traps while staff will be appropriately dressed in full safari khakis and pith helmets. After being issued a tourist visa upon arrival, adventurers will then need to ensure all the correct vaccinations, which on this occasion come in the form of tasty liquid libations, have been administrated before being free to sample the tastes of Africa. The Big Five cocktail menu features African-inspired botanicals while a food menu features dishes such as biltong, curried tempura grasshoppers and cricket powder brownies. During the safari, adventurers will also be encouraged to try and spot The Big Five animals, which will be dotted around the venue in miniature form.

Mr Fogg's adventures around the globe (well, London, more like) continue apace with the opening of Mr Fogg's Society of Exploration on The Strand just two months after Mr Fogg's House of Botanicals launched in Fitzrovia. More about Mr Fogg's Society of Exploration
