After-work drinks and romantic dates in the sky return, as the Iris Bar by Searcys at The Gherkin reopens its doors for all on 4th September. Set 40 levels up, offering unrivalled 360° views over the London skyline, the city’s sky-high drinking destination is back with a new menu of creative cocktails, premium wines & Champagnes, and small plates.
Back with a bang, soak up the sunset while sipping away on expertly crafted cocktails, created by the bar’s talented mixologists. A modern twist on classic serves, tipples include Café Cardamom, a blend of Grey Goose, cardamom, espresso, and coffee liqueur, finished with dark chocolate bitters; the sweet yet punchy Cookie Sour, with pisco, limoncello, Frangelico, chocolate bitters, egg white and gingerbread syrup; and the inventive Rainbow, a mix of rhubarb-infused Bombay Gin, banana liqueur, lemon, and vanilla, all topped with Champagne.
For those looking to just take in the views, there will also be the zero-proof Mad Spritz with cucumber, mint, lemon, thyme syrup and Jasmine soda; while for those who prefer some fizz, the bar will once again offer an impressive list of Champagne and Sparkling wines, available by the glass, bottle, and magnum.
Pair your aperitif with a selection of nibbles from the bar menu, including Truffle Pecorino nuts, and Padron Peppers with chilliand lime salt; alongside sharing plates of Beetroot hummus and pomegranate with garlic and herb bread; Cobble Lane cured meats, caperberries and watercress; and a selection of British cheeses with chutney.
