FOOD AND EVENTS

I have just recently added food and events to this group thought it would be a great addition to have meals together and attend special events, it's not all about holidays. For dinning and some events there will be a contribution fee to the host, or how else will i be able to afford to host with you lovely lot, especially if am out every week as a host. Thanks to all who understand this, really appreciate it, i spend lots of time posting, researching and creating lovely eatery venues for you all, also running this meetup site is costly.
All meals will be paid up before we dine, as this weeds out the time wasters, who often RSVP, however have no intentions of attending. Looking forward to meeting you all xx

Welcome to another of the exclusive event

Mr Fogg's Apothecary is home to an adventurous collection of curative tonics, restorative remedies and compounded libations from around the world. We truly love the design of this venue, it is centrally located, it is cool, and, we will have a reserved area for us.

This event is designed for London based professionals and entrepreneurs to get together, mix and mingle, and build long lasting relationships. As always with our events, you will find a mix of regular guests and new comers.

The hosts will be on site to make introductions and some of our regular guests also enjoy doing that. The overall vibe is relaxed, informal, and at the same time, valuable connections are being made. It is a very simple formula, and it does work each time.

We expect to reach full capacity for this event before the event date, early booking is highly recommended. The majority of our events sell out in advance, and this will be one of those for sure.

A bit more about the venue, located on Brook Street opposite the iconic Claridge’s hotel, the elegant new Victorian Apothecary transports guests into Phileas’ wonderfully eccentric world. Follow a majestic grand staircase leading down to an impressive long bar, stocked to the rafters with his extensive apothecary collection. Here, Mr Fogg’s Apothecary team prescribe, formulate, measure out and dispense the perfect cocktail serves, with precise weighing scales at hand.

The full address of the venue is: 34 Brook Street, London, W1K 5DH, United Kingdom
