A vast terrace on the traffic-free piazza at the foot of the Gherkin is the not-so-secret weapon toted by this slick City of London Bar. In fine weather it turns into one of the most coveted spots for alfresco drinking in the heart of the City. Like its siblings in the chain, The Sterling makes much of its funky decor, easy atmosphere & versatile food. Sharing platters & 'swimmers' (daily fish specials) are a feature at lunchtime, along with diverse dishes such as butternut squash & goats' cheese ravioli, crab cakes with lemongrass & chilli oil, & Norfolk pork belly with glazed baby carrots & roasted beets. From 4pm expect nibbles, burgers & the like. The Sterling is an ideal venue for events be it corporate, product launch or promotional, the list is endless, and who can resist a party in London's most iconic building. A social hub for the City the Sterling is open Monday to Friday from 7:30 to 23:00 with the weekends available for events and private hire, whatever the occasion.
Balls Brothers is responsible for the easy-to-navigate wine list catering for every occasion. Big screens, Champagne breakfasts & Nintendo Wii also form part of the package as do big personalities and a team that strive to make any visit memorable
