Founded in 1891 and now a National Historic Landmark, The New York Botanical Garden is an iconic living museum and one of the greatest botanical gardens in the world. It is distinguished by the beauty of its diverse landscape and extensive collections and gardens. The New York Botanical Garden sets the stage for an event infused with nature and is the quintessential location for gala receptions, formal dinners, corporate outings, and elegant weddings.
GARDEN TERRACE ROOM
Our perfectly redesigned Garden Terrace Room—with expansive windows featuring views of the Garden, sparkling chandeliers, and state-of-the-art lighting—lends a modern elegance to your special day. Outside the main ballroom, a beautiful tent gives guests a chance to enjoy cocktails outside while taking in the lovely surroundings.

The newly refurbished, farm chic Stone Mill offers a paramount combination of historic charm and modern comforts. On the outdoor terrace, an invigorating view of the Bronx River meandering past majestic evergreen trees creates a perfect natural backdrop for your big day.
HUDSON GARDEN GRILL
Nestled within the idyllic setting of the 40-acre Ross Conifer Arboretum, Hudson Garden Grill is the first full-service dining destination to open on the grounds of The New York Botanical Garden. This farm-to-table restaurant spotlights the innovative flavors of New American cuisine as inspired by locally sourced, ethically produced ingredients from Hudson Valley farms and other regional producers. The space is defined by accents of steel and oxidized copper that contrast with the whitewashed, rough-sawn red oak paneling reclaimed from Garden trees felled by Hurricane Sandy. Each element complements the original architecture at its heart. Low banquet seating, an expansive walnut-topped bar, and an open kitchen designed for exhibition cooking represent the vision of Bentel & Bentel, the award-winning architectural firm behind the restaurant’s design. Available for private dinners and receptions, Hudson Garden Grill is the perfect location for beautiful special events.
