Venue of the Month: Searcys at The Gherkin

On the 19 February The Event Works had the privilege of visiting Searcys at The Gherkin, one of London’s most iconic buildings.


The Event Works’ expert team of event organisers travel all over the UK, hosting everything from conferences to intimate parties, and have experienced some of the best venues the country has to offer. This month’s Venue of the Month, Searcys at The Gherkin, is no exception.

The Gherkin – or 30 St Mary Axe as it’s officially called – stands 180m tall, with a breath-taking 360 degree view over the city’s skyline which makes this London venue so impressive, and the ideal location for high profile events. Notably, Searcys has been selected as the backdrop for filming of Hollywood blockbusters such as Thor and Red 2, TV programmes like The Apprentice, as well as being the venue of choice for major product launches for Elizabeth Arden, One Direction and Jimmy Choo!

Occupying three floors of the iconic London landmark, Searcys comprises a two-floor venue space and bar within the spectacular Lord Foster-designed glass dome at the top of the building, as well as a private members club, featuring an exclusive lounge, restaurant and bar with private dining rooms.

An ideal venue for unique high-end product launches, business meetings to impress, special events and award ceremonies. A very quirky, modern and versatile space with the ability to adapt to any requirements – TEW can’t wait to start hosting events here!

Capacity: 260 standing reception, 140 seated dining
