This stylish, low-key jazz lounge and speakeasy will make you feel like a 1950s high-roller à la Mad Men. The entrance is concealed behind an elegant and rather eccentric gentleman’s umbrella store, selling real handmade Fox Umbrellas from England. Access to the bar is gained by pressing a discreet button, a sanctum of midnight-blue leather seats and a stunning cream-colored sculpted ceiling.
The bar’s owners claim that they were inspired by the globe-trotting adventures of a fictional English gentleman by the name of Frank Minza. Luxury travel is a major theme of the 4,300 square foot space — the main lounge, consisting of a restaurant, bar, and stage, is modeled after a first-class airplane cabin from the Golden Age of Aviation, with a replica of a 1940s Gloster jet mounted behind the stage.
A smaller dining room to the side is reminiscent of a first-class train car from the famous Orient Express train.
In addition to the plush surrounds, Foxglove offers a uniquely sophisticated cocktail menu divided into four eras, such as the spirit-heavy ‘Homage to Prohibition’ section and the Far East-inspired ‘Taste for the Exotic’ section. It also offers lunch and dinner menus, as well as nightly live music performances.
