There is a hidden gem in Old Town Chinatown that lies within a walled city block, bursting with blooming orchids, perky bamboo, and over 400 other species of perennials, shrubs and water plants. The Lan Su Chinese Garden houses some of Portland’s most unique features and also boasts some of downtowns most jaw-dropping views.
This is not a banquet room in a hotel, nor is it a dance hall in a historic landmark building, but Lan Su’s 40,000 square feet of beauty subtly infuses functionality that makes it an ideal space for groups wanting an element of nature and culture at their next event. How many soirees have you attended where you mingle on a walk-bridge overlooking a lake stocked with koi fish, or get lost amongst bamboos alongside a waterfall? Look up, and you’ll see eastern architecture juxtaposing Portland’s city skyline. The space is perfect for intimate weddings, corporate social events, and unique celebrations of any type.
Food in Bloom Catering is proud to be an exclusive caterer and can assist you with the details to “wow” your guests. We customize our menus to fit your vision and pair it to complement the natural garden aesthetic. Grab a sweet potato wonton near the Tower of Cosmic Reflection, then head across the walking bridge to the Moon Locking Pavilion to sip on a sake-tini cocktail. Wrap up your journey in the Celestial Hall with a lemon tart or an earl grey truffle, all the while taking in the organic, natural beauty of this hidden garden located in downtown.
