Bar operator Inception Group is planning to open a bar within a hot air balloon under its Mr Fogg's brand this summer. 

Mr Fogg's Hot Air Balloon Bar is due to open in London in August, where it will give a select number of guests the chance to drink cocktails while flying above the capital. 

Inspired by Jules Verne's novel Around the World in 80 days, the balloon will circumnavigate London in 80 minutes while guests are offered top quality spirits served in Thistle Gold crystal pitchers.

Food served on-board will include chicken satay and marshmallows, roasted in the crown of the balloon with guests seated at miniature tables. 

Inception Group said all guests would be issued with a custom-made parachute and given a crash course in safe landings before the balloon takes off from its launch site in Shoreditch Park. 

Inception Group's Charlie Gilkes said: "Inception Group are really excited about their latest venture the Mr Fogg’s Hot Air Balloon Bar. It’ll be quite the experience, although we have had to carefully select our bartenders ensuring they are not scared of heights or prone to motion sickness, for obvious reasons."
