About Searcys at the Gherkin

SquareMeal Review

Panoramic views of London’s skyline instantly make any private dining event that little bit more special, and when it comes to breath-taking views, few venues in the capital have such outstanding ones as those you’ll find at Searcy’s at The Gherkin. Sitting high above London on the thirty-eighth floor of this Norman Foster-designed skyscraper, Searcy’s is renowned for its expertise in the luxury events industry. Here high-end design is paired with vintage cuvées and contemporary cooking, in addition to those unique views from the top three levels of this iconic building located in the heart of the City.

Fittingly named after clouds, the five spaces – Cirrus, Stratus, Nimbus, Alto and Cumulus – can be hired as individual spaces, or combined to make larger double rooms, depending on the number of guests attending your event. This flexibility allows Searcy’s to cater for both large and small events with ease. Ideal for between 24 and 60 guests, dependent on the layout (boardroom, banquet, theatre or standing), the rooms all come with stunning vistas as standard and a dedicated events team primed to provide catering excellence and impeccable service.

All of the rooms offer multiple screens, lapel mics and docking stations, as well as an on-site engineer who will ensure presentations go smoothly. If it’s private dining you have in mind, you can rest assured that the menus, whether for a celebratory breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea or dinner, will reflect Searcys’ passion for British produce and seasonality. Perhaps you’re after a space for pre-dinner drinks followed by a dazzling dinner, in which case you might like to start in Searcys’ gorgeous Iris Bar, before retiring to your exclusive space. Whatever your celebration, meeting or event, the team at Searcy’s will be happy to help make it go off with a bang.

Aptly named after clouds, Searcys created these contemporary and versatile rooms so guests can look forward to an even more exceptional experience. Open for daytime functions, the spaces are ideal for dining as well as small, targeted conferences in the heart of The City. Able to adapt to suit the size and style of any event, these interconnecting rooms are as practical as they are eye-catching. The oversized glazed doors between the rooms allow a more open circulation and maximize natural light whilst brass and a specialist ‘shimmer’ wall finish add a subtle touch of luxury. The rooms also offer multiple screens, lapel mics and docking stations, as well as an on-site engineer on hand to ensure presentations go smoothly. Booked individually, the private rooms are ideal for weddings up to 15 guests or to corporate meetings for up to 30 attendees.
