New event spaces open at The Gherkin

Five rooms with cloud-inspired names are on the 38th floor, offering great views of the capital.

Searcys at The Gherkin has opened several private dining, meeting and events spaces.

The five new spaces are named after clouds: Alto, Cirrus, Stratus, Cumulus and Nimbus and offer spectacular views of the capital for 18 delegates or larger parties of up to 100 guests.

Newly open for daytime functions, the cloud-inspired rooms are on the 38th floor. The interconnecting rooms offer multiple screens, lapel mics and docking stations. Booked individually the rooms are ideal for 18 to 50 guests, while double rooms or whole floor booking allow for numbers up to 130 guests.

"In response to a move towards inspirational flexible spaces that can host all event styles – from business meetings, informal celebrations or a full-day conference, we were tasked with creating a series of multifunctional private hire spaces at level 38," said Harriet Helps, project manager at Soft Rooms, the company behind the design.
