The Glasshouse at The GherkinSitting on the top two floors of the iconic London landmark, Searcys at The Gherkin - also known as Helix and Iris - is already one of London's coolest venues, and it's set to become even more attractive this summer thanks to botanical pop-up, The Glasshouse at The Gherkin. Created in partnership with Perrier-Jout Champagne, the pop-up brings nature to life in the heart of the city with the entire Iris Bar, located on the 40th floor, transformed into a green oasis of exotic flowers and plants, all coming together within the venue's glass walls to give the illusion of a sky-high conservatory. Guests can sip on Perrier-Jout vintages as well as specially created summer cocktails and a botanical themed food menu, served in the Helix Restaurant on the 39th floor. For special group events, a private dining room on level 38 has been transformed into a mini version of The Glasshouse with a striking floral installation in the centre of the room. A series of champagne masterclasses will also be taking place along with a programme of live entertainment.

About Helix and Iris

Previously London's highest private members' club, Searcys at The Gherkin relaunched as new restaurant and bar Helix and Iris in 2018, opening the space to the public for the very first time. Located on the 39th and 40th floors of the iconic Norman Foster-designed building, the striking space is now home to a sky-high contemporary restaurant and a champagne and cocktail bar.
