The rise of business breakfasts
After an exceptional year of events, we are looking forward to the new decade. In 2019 alone, we hosted over 1,400 events and 22,614 guests across the top three floors of The Gherkin. More than 15% of all events held in 2019 took place over breakfast, reflecting a 4% increase from 2018. With a shift away from traditional dinner events and with a growing demand for breakfasts, we have introduced a sky-high ‘Breakfast at Searcys’ package for corporate and private events.
With three packages to choose from, our breakfast menus were created by our Executive Chef, Shaun Rowlands, to showcase the best of British seasonal produce. Menu highlights include Norfolk smoked streaky bacon on a brioche bun, a breakfast board of cheese, with assorted Suffolk cold meats and Searcys smoked salmon, or a vegetarian full English, with field mushrooms, grilled plum tomatoes, spinach, baked beans and avocado. A healthy selection of dishes, such as granola, natural yoghurt and honey, and traditional blueberry porridge is also on offer.
Designed to provide the best sky-high business breakfasts in the City of London, the packages are available in our five private dining rooms and also the panoramic Iris Bar, located on level 40 of The Gherkin. For a lavish business experience, guests can upgrade to bottles of Searcys signature cuvee. Packages include a dedicated Event Manager, a guest registration area, a fully staffed cloakroom, event staff and security.
