Botanico at The Garage: The Perfect Venue For The Garden Wedding of Your Dreams

Spacious and full of light, Botanico at The Garage is the perfect space for nature-loving couples seeking a garden wedding.

Located within Singapore’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Singapore Botanic Gardens, just a stone’s throw away from Orchard Road, The Garage by 1-Group is the latest addition to our sunny island’s offering of unique alternative wedding venues.

Formerly a garage for college professors and residence for their drivers, as well as a school of ornamental horticulture and office space for the Horticulture Department, the two-storey pristine white Art Deco building is styled with a botanical theme as a tribute to its history. With plush furnishings that give off a homey, relaxed vibe and a charismatic exposed wood-beam ceiling, The Garage is the perfect venue for couples seeking a unique space that reflects their love for horticulture for an intimate wedding celebration of a lifetime.

Charmingly nestled among the gardens’ lush greenery, the elegant structure consists of two exceptional dining spaces. The second level of The Garage houses Botanico, a gorgeous air-conditioned contemporary space for one-of-a-kind celebrations of up to 130 guests. The cavernous rectangular space is pillarless and features a high exposed beam ceiling and windows on both sides that open the room up to the outdoor greenery and sunlight, offering a spacious and captivating area for your guests to mingle at ease and enjoy the celebrations without limitations. Botanico also boasts an outdoor courtyard with lovely wooden floor paneling that runs the length of the upper floor, perfect for an outdoor garden solemnisation and reception.

Situated on the ground floor is Bee’s Knees, an all-day dining garden café and bistro that serves up warm hospitality, genuine service and a menu of breakfast staples like eggs and waffles as well as heartier selections like pizza and pasta. The building’s former seven half-round arched entrances have been transformed into beautiful floor-to-ceiling glass windows that bath the café in an abundance of light and offer diners a spectacular view of the greenery outside.
