A Private Celebration Space
Our Good Stock Garden is a stylish, serene, and accommodating outdoor space made for folx to celebrate any and all milestones.

Bridal and baby showers, rehearsal dinners, corporate retreats, birthdays, and the like infused the space with joy, connection, possibility, and creativity.

If you’ve been to our storefront, Good Stock, you know we are passionate about ambiance and aesthetics. Our garden is an extension of this lovingly maintained, peaceful, and inclusive environment. A soapstone bar, farm table, cafe lights, and lush greenery all accentuate the garden but also leave ample opportunity to make it your own. Our 1200-ft. garden is accessed through our storefront (there is no rear access to the garden) and can spaciously and comfortably host up to 50 guests.

The garden space has been thoughtfully designed to host the ideal party, and here is how:

Complete with a farm sink, refrigeration, and a commercial dishwasher, the bar area is ready to serve whatever you’re pouring. Professional bartenders love the bar set-up, and our guests rave about the look, ease, and convenience of having this essential event element ready to be stocked onsite.

At the opposite end of the bar, there is a sweet and small dwelling, which we call “The Shed.” This area is ideal for a catering set-up. You are welcome to bring any outside food, as well as cook on-site, from an open grill to a paella slow gas burn; we can accomplish a lot.

Additionally, we’re always happy to help connect our clients with recommended caterers—it's completely up to you!

You also have access to our sister cactus garden. Featuring an arched gate that opens elegantly into the garden, this enchanting space can be easily added to the cost of the Good Stock Garden rental. If you choose to include this option for your event, your hourly rate will increase to $300. Details are provided upon request. Be sure to check out the photos in the listing; the ones with cacti in them reference this option.

Once your booking is confirmed, we will meet with you, discuss your event, and help you plan and design your day to your heart's content.
