Halloween haunts in London

The capital is the place to be for Halloween this year. Hetty Chidwick discovers some of the spookiest establishments in which to celebrate.

Dr Frankenstein at Mr Fogg’s
The Mayfair bar, hidden off Barclay Square on Bruton Lane already has its fair share of theatricals. This week, they welcome a new visitor through its heavy oak doors in the shape of Dr Frankenstein for a week of entertainment and wildly experimental cocktails, all with a spooky twist. You can expect bubbling concoctions in cauldrons, bell jars brimming with brain parts and barman dressed in Victorian scientist garb with a trick or two up their sleeves.

From Tuesday October 28- Saturday November 1
Mr Fogg’s, 15 Bruton Lane, London, W1J 6JD

MoMix the molecular cocktail mixologists, are set to transform the bar into an “eerie and smokey futuristic science lab”.
