To celebrate my upcoming wedding, which had to be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, five of my nearest and dearest wanted to surprise me with a day out in London. Knowing that I have wanted to visit a Mr. Foggs gin bar location for a while, they surprised me with a visit to the Mr. Foggs gin bar located in Mayfair. A table had been booked and when we got there, we were told we could not enter as we were dressed inappropriately. We were all wearing black, knee length dresses with black shoes - no trainers in sight - but were still not allowed to enter. When we politely asked the door staff to explain the dress code and why we could not enter, they described the dress code to be ‘elegant and informal’. Black dresses and smart black shoes or boots are what I would consider to be exactly that, informal but very much presentable. When pressed further, they told us that we were not the ‘target clientele that they or management want in the bar’. To make matters worse, we then saw a woman being led to the Secret Garden bar outside the premises, dressed in blue jeans, sandals and a see-through white top with her bra on show. Not something I would consider to follow the so called ‘dress code’ compared to what we were wearing. The impression we got was that some of us in the group who have tattoos and brightly coloured hair were seen as common. This sort of elitist behaviour is frankly unacceptable from any establishment in 2021, especially after a year of uncertainty and sacrifice due to the pandemic. The attitude from the door staff was unprofessional, conceited and most upsettingly, unapologetic. Thank goodness for the Be At One bar around the corner, who welcomed us and made sure we had a great time for the rest of the night.GOOGLE REVIEW

The atmosphere is amazing. We were meant to sit outside but with the unpredictable rain we were accommodated inside. All the staff are in full attire and character. It feels as though you are transported into a speakeasy. The cocktails are beautiful and perfectly crafted as well as delicious! I wish there were some more filling snacks so we could have sampled more of the cocktail menu!GOOGLE REVIEW

Edit: I visited the bar again on 22 Aug 2020. The cocktails are bad, really bad. What happened? Change of Bartenders? The classics weren’t even done decently. Disappointing. cocktails are not excellent but of very good standard. service was relatively fast and the waiters were attentive and asked for feedback of the drinks, despite busy hours. the prices are reasonable considering that it is in mayfair. homely decor, suitable for a bunch of friends but not for dating as i think it is tad bit noisy.GOOGLE REVIEW

This place was nothing short of legendary and plays tribute to noble ladies and gentlemen alike. Octavia, the waitress I had the privilege of placing my drink orders, was well organized and made sure a drink was constantly in my hand. If you like atmospheres, with a juxtaposition of the new and the old; it deserves a pilgrimage. I shall return.GOOGLE REVIEW

I’ve been on a Wednesday evening and genuinely, it’s a great place full of character, ambience, the correct amount of light and good background music. Cocktails are great, even the non-alcoholic ones, and the staff is incredibly polite and cheerful. Definitely recommend it👌🏻🍸🍹🥃 It gets busier around 21/22ishGOOGLE REVIEW
