We celebrated our 4th birthday at Sky Garden which really was the perfect place to celebrate – not only amazing views of London but also delicious food by Rhubarb, flowing drinks, amazing service and hosts!
Sky Garden is located in the heart of the City at the top of the “Walkie Talkie Building” (20 Fenchurch Street) which offers the most amazing views of London from a variety of positions – one side you have the river view and the other side you have the city view of St Paul’s and other iconic London sights. Sky Garden is literally an indoor park which provides a unique and beautiful setting for your events all with an amazing view from every angle you look! You can hire the venue exclusively, but for day hire the venue is only available for a small number of dates throughout the year which makes it even more exclusive, for up to 700 people. As well as exclusive hire for up to 700 people, the City Garden is a dedicated events platform for up to 300 guests and Fenchurch Terrace (where we held our event) is a secluded terrace for up to 120 people. All food and drinks are provided by Rhubarb who are the exclusive caterers. As the building is an indoor garden there are limitations on what can be held in some spaces during particular months due to temperatures but the amazing team will be able to advise on this to ensure it doesn’t impact your event.
As well as event spaces for drinks receptions, conferences, launches, large dinners etc there are also two restaurants within Sky Garden – Fenchurch Restaurant and Darwin Brasserie. Fenchurch Terrace offers modern British dishes all created by Head Chef Daniel Fletcher, previously of Two-Michelin starred restaurant The Square, London. Within the Fenchurch Restaurant there is a beautiful private dining room which can accommodate up to 16 guests, the terrace outside the restaurant provides the perfect space for pre-dinner drinks before enjoying dinner. The restaurant can also be hired for up to 45 guests. Darwin Brasserie is a more relaxed offering which includes a chef’s table for up to 20 people or you can hire the entire restaurant for drinks or a exclusive dinner. Both restaurants offer great options for smaller meetings over breakfast or dinner as well!
We enjoyed the views and celebrated with our members on Level 37 the Fenchurch Terrace which is a terrace outside the Fenchurch Restaurant. Lovely lounge furniture with a private bar and poseur tables were beautifully positioned within our semi-private area whilst we were able to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the live music from the band performing in the main space below us. Throughout the evening, we enjoyed delicious and innovative canapes all prepared by Head Chef Daniel Fletcher – they honestly were so yummy and all presented beautifully. As well as canapes, we enjoyed lovely platters of fresh salads, meats and cheeses and seafood which all went down a storm with our guests – if you hold an event at Sky Garden your guests will certainly love the food! The team also added some magic touches with a bespoke cocktail which was very Instagramable as well as drinkable (maybe drinkable a bit too much, haha!) and a goody bag for all our guests. A very special magic touch was our own birthday cake with candles and singing – we were so surprised and touched!! Thank you so much Sky Garden for making our birthday one to remember!!!
Not only were we blown away by the hosting, the venue, food and drinks but we were also blown away by the support and love in the room from our members who were all just as excited as we were to be celebrating our birthday! Our 5th birthday party has a lot to live up to if it is to beat this year’s!!
For all your Sky Garden needs, Sarah Tregoning, is your lady! Let her know that we sent you….
