Towering 40 floors above the streets below, with panoramic views of London's most iconic landmarks, the normally members-only Searcys at The Gherkin will be transformed into a Sky High Summer outdoor playground for six glorious weeks this summer: Normally reserved exclusively for members only.

A collaboration with Tanqueray 10; on top of the impressive vantage point, guests can also expect chic five-star décor, sun loungers, olive trees, a "pool" and even a temporary village market, evoking a quintessential 1950s summer scene of high-end holidaying.

Snack on fresh oysters, a huge selection of authentic cheeses and charcuterie bites, and sup on Searcys' signature champagnes and bespoke cocktails.

The venue will ooze glamour, classic chic and sophistication. The decor will evoke an evening spent by the summer Provence waters in a luxury star resort, decorated with olive trees, lavender plants and sun loungers, complete with a cheese and charcuterie market and “swimming pool”. Enjoy bespoke cocktails, champagne and unforgettable London views for 6-weeks only.

Book from 6-8pm as it's less crowded and you get the spectacular sunset. It gets crowded later in the evening and you will be asked to vacate when this happens. I was expecting more from the theme - it turned out to be quite simple with some deck chairs, the fresh food stall and the waitresses in themed dress, but the view is undeniable, and food (oysters and charcuterie board) was good. Drinks were mediocre but you're there to experience the venue more than anything else!

I highly recommend this! Really relaxed and such an amazing view and atmosphere. Well worth going, but it really is expensive. Worth it for one of those once in a lifetime type experiences!

A very enjoyable evening sipping cocktails and eating cheese & charcuterie bites whilst eyeing up the fabulous views of London. Food and drink is expensive but worth every penny to experience an evening in one of London's most iconic buildings. Best time slot is 7pm to 9pm as you're able to watch the sun go down and see London light up when it gets dark.

Very relaxed, non-fussy atmosphere. And of course, the view!!! Food and drink expensive but, you know, save up your rainy day pennies and make the effort. Because, when else will you get to sit right at the top of that great big Gherkin??
