A Night of the Dark Arts at Mr Fogg’s Residence

On 10th November Ladies and gentlemen can go around the world in 80 days to explore the darker side of magic at Mr Fogg’s Residence. The bar based on the home of Julius Verne’s most famous explorer hosts an evening of Dark Arts, showcasing Mr Fogg’s brand new ‘Tails of the Dark Arts Cocktail Menu.

For one night only, guests will be transported back to the ‘Golden Age of Magic’. Join Mr Fogg in his period drawing room adorned with Victorian artefacts and trinkets, as guests experience an evening filled with sleight of hand and alluring Maleficium. Throughout the night not one, but three magicians will take our guests on an odyssey of spell-binding sorcery and wicked wizardry.

Some of London’s finest magicians will captivate and bewilder including, Mr Siegffried Loew, a talented vintage style French magician with tricks and illusions that surprise and fascinate. Followed by multi-award winning dove magician, Mr Oliver Tabor. Winning his first award at 15, Oliver has appeared regularly on the London cabaret circuit, including repeat bookings at the Cafe de Paris and as headliner in 'Magic Night'. Finally, Mr Fogg’s very own resident magician, the infamous Mr Dee Riley, The Great will be the host for the night keeping guests enthralled with mesmerizing magic tricks up close and personal throughout the night. Live shows will take place at exactly, 8:01pm, 9:01pm and 10.01pm on the dot.

But be not fooled for this is no ordinary hocus-pocus, this is a magic show that will beguile all of the senses. Over the course of all three acts magic will meet music, creating a unique experience by combining the two to fill the room with ethereal beauty and opulent mystique. Guests will be taken further into the unknown with a chance to try Cocktails from Mr Fogg’s ‘Tails of the Dark Arts Menu, an elaborate selection of tipples inspired by mystical magicians, nefarious necromancers, maleficent mediums, stupefying sorcerers and bewildering witches.
