Gordon Ramsay to open UK’s highest restaurant and bar

AXA IM Alts selects Gordon Ramsay Restaurants for the UK’s highest restaurant and bar

 AXA IM Alts, a global leader in alternative investments with €183 billion of assets under management, makes the announcement that Gordon Ramsay Restaurants will open what will be the UK’s highest building top bar and restaurant offering at 22 Bishopsgate in London.



Gordon Ramsay Restaurants has taken a 20 year lease and the five culinary experiences will occupy floors 58M, 59, 60 and 61 and will sit above Horizon 22, the recently opened free public viewing gallery.

The offering will also include an open-air terrace, private dining concept and a central location for the Gordon Ramsay Academy.

The 24,361 sq ft space will welcome  existing GRR brands Lucky Cat by Gordon Ramsay, an Asian inspired restaurant, influenced by Tokyo’s 1930s kissas and Shanghai’s drinking dens, and the contemporary British cuisine at Bread Street Kitchen.



The Lucky Cat open-air rooftop terrace will be the destination for cocktails and entertainment until 3am.

22 Bishopsgate will also feature a new 14-seat Chef’s Table concept born from the Gordon Ramsay Restaurant’s first establishment, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, which has maintained a 3-star Michelin rating for 22 years.

Meanwhile the acclaimed Gordon Ramsay Academy will open its first central location where passionate cooks can hone their culinary skills.

Each venue will have views of the London skyline, with vistas of iconic landmarks including Tower Bridge and St Paul’s Cathedral across the various levels.

This new leisure offering represents another first for 22 Bishopsgate, having already opened London’s first climbing window, in the 25th floor gym, and Europe’s highest free public viewing gallery on level 58.



This unique ‘vertical village’ also incorporates over 100,000 sq ft of integrated amenity and social spaces including a fresh food street-market style restaurant offering on the second floor, an innovation hub, wellbeing retreat and spa, curated ‘art walk’, business club as well as a c. 1,500-space active commuter park and cycle hub.

22 Bishopsgate is a people-led smart building, designed to meet the changing needs of the modern occupier and embody the structural and cultural shifts in how people work and live.

Its occupier and consumer offering demonstrates a continued commitment to grow a thriving community, bringing together a diverse range of tenants and visitors across numerous sectors and walks of life in the heart of the City of London.
