Perched high above the city, Iris bar on level 40 has opened these epic 360° views to the public, from 11am to 11pm. When viewed from above, the pinnacle of the Gherkin forms an iris shape. Hence the name for the new bar, Iris.
Iris is open to all and offers an extensive cocktail menu as unique as the setting, paying homage to the London sights and neighborhoods that can all be spied below from the Gherkin’s distinctive position. Searcys’ expertise in exquisite Champagne, English sparkling wine and cocktails, alongside unrivaled London views, makes every visit to Iris bar a celebration. Open from Monday to Saturday from 11am-11pm. Iris Bar requires bookings in advance and availability is open five weeks in advance.
Please note: You will be asked for a form of picture identification at reception and will need to go through security checks before being whisked away up to bar, in the sky lifts.
Monday - Friday 11:00 - 23:00
