Garden Parties & Rooftop Venues

Published: July 01, 2016


Host your event under the stars and/or above the city lights! The Hyatt Place at Oakway Center has a beautiful rooftop deck complete with their "Sky Bar". The Ax Billy restaurant in the Downtown Athletic Club has a rooftop terrace and the Graduate Eugene now provides rooftop event space!

Or hold your event at ground level in a garden. From the magical gardens at Belknap Hot Springs Lodge on the McKenzie River to the twelve theme gardens at the Village Green in Cottage Grove, to local city gardens featuring roses or rhododendrons, there are many beautifully manicured courtyards, patios and gardens just right for outdoor meetings or social events. Gather in the outdoor children's courtyard at the Eugene Public Library or the Cascade Courtyard with its lovely fountain on the University of Oregon campus. For an unusual twist, book event space at BRING recycling in their "Garden of Earthly Delights". This magnificent example of repurposing, showcases unique art and architecture using cast-offs and their programs include tours and green-living demonstrations.

Beyond hotel and restaurant rooftops, finding access to private garden or deck spaces may be more difficult. Our staff may be able to help you identify and connect with some of those lesser-known garden and deck options found at luxury housing units, private estates, businesses, private clubs or on the University of Oregon campus. Contact us today, so we can help you find the best garden setting for your important function.
