Summary

“The view – ground-level to zenith – is breathtaking”, sitting on the 39th-floor of this London landmark: “go if you need to impress, especially an out-of-towner”. And – though “security to enter is (understandably) Draconian” – all-in-all performance defies the usual rules about rooms-with-a-view: it’s “so uplifting to combine great vistas with very competent standards”. Until recent times, entry was restricted to employees within the building, but the caterers rebranded and relaunched the space (fka ‘Searcys at The Gherkin’) in summer 2018, and it’s now open to all (including the top-floor ‘Iris’ bar).
