  • Melbourne’s newest pop-up venue, the Botanica

    August 17, 2021

    Considering where to host your next corporate event or work celebration? Look no further than the edge of the city centre set in the beautiful Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne, is the new exciting new pop-up venue, the Botanica.

    In what feels like a world away from the city buzz, a floodlit venue that is a collaborative result between Blakes Feast and Dann Event Hire, boasts stunning views of the lush green lawns, beautifully landscaped gardens and exotic plants.  

     “The Botanica is a contemporary glass-walled marquee structure, nestled in the backdrop of one of Melbourne’s most iconic locations – The Royal Botanical Gardens. The Botanica’s most striking feature is its marble service bar that stands in front of a 5.3m high curved textured backdrop,” said Blakes Feast CEO Neredah McIntosh.

    Matching this spectacular venue is a menu celebrating seasonal produce created by Melbourne’s premier boutique catering company, Blakes Feast.

    Accommodating 400pax for a cocktail event and up to 280 sit-down banquets complete with a dancefloor, the Botanica is perfect for large corporate groups. After your colleagues have finished their meals, they can enjoy networking on the deck or celebrate the end of the work year by hitting the dancefloor.

    As the days grow longer and the weather warms up, this inner-city oasis venue will come into its own. Start planning your next event today as it's only available to host events for a limited time from 29 October until 17 December 2021.
