WHERE A TASTE OF THE HIGH-LIFE AWAITS

There are few spots on the London landscape as striking as Searcys at The Gherkin, where a taste of the high-life awaits. Pair high-end design with vintage cuvees and contemporary cooking, all while enjoying panoramic views from the top three levels of one of London’s most iconic skyscrapers. Searcys introduces HELIX Restaurant and IRIS bar; now open to the public for the first time.

 

PRIVATE DINING ROOMS

Open for daytime functions, the sky-high rooms by Events at The Gherkin are ideal for dining and celebratory gatherings in the heart of the City. Sitting high above London on the 38th floor of this Norman Foster-designed building, the rooms were aptly named after clouds:  Alto, Cirrus, Stratus, Cumulus and Nimbus offer stunning vistas, catering excellence and impeccable service.  Designed with flexibility in mind, the recently refurbished rooms provide a space for small, targeted conferences for 18 delegates or larger parties of up to 100 guests. Events, private dinners or conferences at The Gherkin are lavishly catered for with bespoke breakfast, lunch and dinner menus that bring to life Searcys’ passion for British produce and seasonality.

Booked individually the cloud-inspired rooms are ideal for up to 50 guests dependent on the layout, while double rooms or whole floor booking allow for larger gatherings of up to 130 guests. Each rooms offer multiple screens, lapel mics and docking stations, as well as an on-site engineer on hand to ensure presentations go smoothly.
