A slice of Japan in the Lion City Pan Pacific Singapore has introduced its newest event space, a newly-constructed Garden Pavilion sequestered in its fourth floor open-air space. The Garden Pavilion sits serenely in the heart of a beautifully-sculpted Japanese garden, and is connected via a short walkway from Keyaki restaurant. The rectangular structure is clad in traditional Shoji-inspired screens, and opens up to a shimmering koi pond. The Garden Pavilion itself can seat up to 40 people for a sit-down lunch or dinner. In standing cocktail-style, the rectangular space would be able to hold around 80 pax. Keyaki itself can seat up to 140 pax, and it has two private dining rooms. Only Japanese fare from Keyaki will be served at events utilising the pavilion, and menus can be tailored and customised to any palate. Kaiseki menus for private luncheons or dinners start at S$220 (US$162) per person, while cocktail receptions start at S$80 per person with canapés. The minimum spend for the use of the pavilion is S$6,000 ++ for dinner and S$5,000 ++ for lunch. A full-day meeting experience starts at S$135 per person inclusive of a bento lunch and two coffee breaks, while a half-day meet- ing experience starts at S$90 and includes a bento lunch and one coffee break. The Garden Pavilion would certainly be a perfect place to unwind, partake in a delicious meal, and imbibe a glass of wine, after a long day of negotiations and discus- sions. Opening hours for lunch are 11.30 to from 14.30, while dinners are from 18.30 to 22.30.
