The Gherkin Private Dining, Restaurant Level 39

Levels 39+40 - Helix & Iris

Helix restaurant on Level 39 of The Gherkin is famed for its contemporary British menus and panoramic city views. When combined with Iris Bar on Level 40, together they present stunning opportunities for events like wedding receptions and seated dinners for a maximum of 260 and 140 guests respectively. Natural light floods both levels during the day lending a fresh, contemporary vibe. After sundown and as the rest of the city lights up, the space assumes a more dramatic character.

Level 40 - Iris Bar

The Iris Bar on Level 40 of The Gherkin is the ultimate cocktail bar. Count on the bar’s mixologists to whip up delicious cocktails using fresh ingredients and fine liquors as you enjoy a 360-degree view of London. The expansive bar with a domed glass ceiling can be hired exclusively for corporate events, seasonal parties, wedding receptions or even award evenings. Iris Bar can also be hired semi-exclusively for a reception-style event with 70 guests.

Named loftily after different cloud formations - Cirrus, Nimbus, Cumulus, Stratus and Alto - the rooms cater for a range of celebrations from board meetings, five-course feasts and Champagne brunches to intimate wedding dinners, Christmas dos and business breakfasts.
