PA Life: Big breakfast results for Searcys at The Gherkin
“Searcys at the Gherkin has reported on an impressive year of events business, with the venue hosting over 1,400 events and 22,614 guests across the top four floors of the landmark building.
It says more than 15% of all the events held in 2019 took place over breakfast, reflecting an increase from 4% last year. This shift away from traditional client breakfasts sees a growing demand for breakfasts, and Searcys has introduced a new sky-high ‘Breakfast at Searcys’ meeting package for corporate and private events.
With three different packages to choose from, the breakfast menus were created by Executive Chef Shaun Rowlands to showcase the best of British seasonal fare. Menu highlights include “Norfolk smoked streaky bacon on 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, avocado”. A healthy selection of dishes such as “homemade granola, natural yogurt and honey” or a “Traditional blueberry porridge” is also on offer.
Designed to provide the best sky-high business breakfast in the City, the packages are available in The Gherkin’s suite of private dining rooms and also at the panoramic Iris Bar, at level 40.
Menus can be accompanied by unlimited 100% coffee or tea. For a lavish business experience, upgrade to include bottles of Searcys signature cuvee. Standard room hire packages include a dedicated guest registration area at the lobby reception, a fully staffed cloakroom, dedicated event manager, event staff and security.”
