Party in the Tropics

Dine, drink and dance the night away in our tropical paradise.

Gather your friends and head to Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens for a healthy dose of revelry and rejuvenation as our Tropical Forest Conservatory transforms into one of the city’s most unique nightspots. At this reoccurring party, you can make our paradise your own as you indulge in sweet and savory morsels, taste unique cocktails and seasonal beer selections, dance to the beats of a live DJ, and unwind amidst lush greenery and rushing waterfalls. You won’t find a venue like this anywhere else in the ‘Burgh!
