The Miami Beach Botanical Garden is a hidden gem in the urban setting of South Beach, situated across from the Convention Center. The garden offers various options to accommodate events of all types and sizes. Larger parties may have use of the entire garden, including indoor spaces, and guests can wander freely through the tranquil beauty of this unique location.

The Japanese Garden showcases a small pond surrounded by bamboo plantings and accentuated by a bright red bridge and stone lantern sculptures. The Japanese Garden is a wonderful site for intimate weddings and the  wooded surroundings and waterscape create a natural boundary for smaller gatherings.

The Butterfly Room accommodates 40 people for classes, seminars and meetings, while The Banyan Room is a versatile indoor/outdoor option which includes the adjacent terrace, great lawn and courtyard.
