Open to the public daily for the first time, Helix restaurant on level 39 of The Gherkin offers sky-high contemporary dining at both lunch and dinner. With majestic views across the city.

From executive chef Daniel Loftin, the Helix restaurant menu is led by seasonal, British and local produce.

Perched above Helix on level 40 is Iris bar, offering 360° views an extensive cocktail menu as unique as the setting. As well as cocktails which pay homage to the city below, an exquisite selection of champagne and English sparkling wine is also served.

Host your event in one of London’s most enviable and inspiring locations. From board meeting buffets and wedding parties to five-course feasts and birthday dinners, the adaptable private dining spaces can be combined and shaped to fit your occasion.

Looking for something a little bigger? You can book exclusive use of both Helix and Iris for up to 150 seated or 260 standing.
