There are few spots on the London landscape as striking as Searcys at The Gherkin, where HELIX restaurant has reopened to the public for the first time. Pair high-end design with a range of carefully selected champagnes and contemporary cooking, all while enjoying panoramic views from the top level of…
Moroccan Sky Riad
Usually a strictly-operated private members' bar; Searcy's at the top of the Gherkin have never opened their impressive venue to the public, let alone thrown their own spectacular event.
Well, until now that is.
They have exclusive access to this sought after and breathtaking space for a 7 week pop-up over the summer. This is your one chance to experience 360 degree, unparalleled views of London; right up in the glass domed roof of the iconic Gherkin.
Amidst the hustle and bustle of the city you will find an idyllic Moroccan hideaway, elevated 180 metres above street level in one of London’s most recognisable skyscrapers. Level 40 at The Gherkin will become a Moroccan Riad for the summer. You'll experience traditional Moroccan entertainment, enjoy authentic cuisine and sip on delicious drinks from the renowned Searcy's bar. The Level 40 experience has been designed to create the ambience and character of traditional Marrakesh nightlife, souks and bazaars with the more chic, tranquil and serene style of Riads and retreats. Design influences such as jewel coloured finishes and rich purple satins against simple and sophisticated hessian and distressed wood, fuses together to totally encapsulate the essence of Morocco. A number of seating options will be available on the top floor, including Sultan Beds for four to eight people, and Gem Booths to seat four.
Whether it's a date night, birthday or engagement - this is an unforgettable and jaw-dropping pop-up experience, not to be missed.
