Meeting Offers

Discover our cutting-edge meeting rooms on the 38th floor of the Gherkin. A nod to its elevated position, each one is named after the clouds surrounding them: Cirrus, Stratus, Nimbus, Alto and Cumulus. And much like the clouds, four of them join to create an even bigger space – Cirrus and Stratus to form Cirrostratus, and Alto and Cumulus make Altocumulus.

With multiple screens, lapel mics and docking stations, each space is designed with style and intuitive practicality in mind. There is even an on-site engineer there, to ensure your event runs smoothly.

Great staff, incredible views and a lovely private room perfect for our event

Could have done with a bit more space around the table - a buffet breakfast was offered but wasn't really much room for people to walk around

Great service and delicious food.

Wall partition blocks part of the room so tables need to be arranged to avoid this causing an obstruction.

The view, the staff and the food were all great. Thoroughly enjoyed my afternoon/evening.

Some guy I paid at the bar probably a manager at the iris bar at the top, almost double charged me for the bottle of champagnes I purchased and already paid for that evening without even checking. I also found him a bit condescending, as he kept insisting that I hadn’t paid and prior to that was constantly looking over at the area reserved for me that day.

The communication was always amazing, clear & thorough. There was never any confusion as to what to expect. The room in itself was absolutely beautiful and was a hit with all guests! The viewing platform was perfect for pictures and getting to the room was very easy with a very kind staff facilitating this process! The staff who attended to us on the day were also very helpful and understanding!

Booking Contract is extremely strict and leaves no room for flexibility especially when dealing with large numbers who are prone to last minute changes. These changes would not be reflected and would still result in a high fee regardless. Food orders were also mixed up on the actual day.


There are few spots on the London landscape as striking as our special venue. Pair high-end design with vintage cuvees and contemporary cooking, all while enjoying panoramic views from the top three levels of one of London's most iconic skyscrapers.

The top two floors of this breathtaking venue can be hired exclusively for breakfast conferences, celebratory dining and evening receptions. The exclusive hire of Helix and Iris is ideal for events up to 260 guests.

For smaller and more intimate events, the five private dining rooms on level 38 offer unforgettable views of the London skyline. Designed with flexibility in mind, the cloud-inspired rooms can be booked individually or can be combined to fit your occasion. The private dining rooms are ideal for targetted conferences, meetings, networking and dinners for up to 60, whilst whole floor bookings allow for events up to 130 guests.

Events at the venue are lavishly catered for with bespoke breakfast, lunch and dinner menus that bring to life passion for British produce and seasonality.
