Clients were invited to the launch event, held last night (August 23), giving them a preview of the work undertaken before they are officially re-opened. The Gherkin’s Private Dining Rooms form part of the iconic tower’s unique offering and have seen unprecedented demand with a substantial increase in occupancy rates.
The exciting refurbishment project has seen both rooms given a fresh new look whilst retaining synergy with the Perrier-Jouet and Chivas brands. Each room has been beautifully decorated to reflect each individual brand, whilst offering guests a vista that stretches across London.
As part of the evening, guests were treated to a range of new and creative items from the canapes menu created by Executive Chef Barry Tonks including Perrier-Jouet macaroons and Chivas whisky truffles, while sipping on Perrier-Jouet Grand Brut and Rose champagnes. A Chivas whisky tasting rounded off the evening in style.
Charley Taylor-Smith, Sales and Marketing Manager for Searcy at The Gherkin comments; “The Gherkin’s Private Dining Rooms provide guests with a refined and secluded offering which has proven increasingly popular. Our occupancy rates have hit an all-time high, and we are finding their popularity means they are often in use up to three times a day for different events. The refurbishment of our Private Dining Rooms is part of a strategy to keep their look as fresh as possible, and changing it seasonally in line with Perrier-Jouet and Chivas means guests are given a different experience each time they visit.”
The Chivas room can accommodate 18 guests in a boardroom style and 24 people for a theatre set-up, whilst the Perrier-Jouet room has the capacity for 24 people in a boardroom configuration and 32 theatre style.
