Love the Bates Mansion!
I knew the moment we visited the Bates Mansion that I wanted to have our wedding reception there. The venue was perfect for our wedding theme.
Kelly and her team were a joy to work including the dj, photo booth team, and the bartending staff! Kelly was easy to work with, flexible, and knowledgeable. The day before our wedding, Tucson got hit with an unusual snowstorm (I know!) and Kelly was prepared with a Plan B in case the weather was not cooperative the next day. Luckily my wedding day was a beautiful day and the patio was perfect!
The wedding packages were fairly priced and customizable. The dinner options we chose were delicious and the options we chose from were plentiful.
Our friends and family were very impressed with the Bates Mansion and we did not have to stress the day of the wedding knowing that we were in good hands!Sent on 03/06/2019

I love everything about the Bates Mansion! This is a beautiful venue and worked so well for our event. Every room has great decor but my favorite room is the dressing room. We used this gorgeous, really long table as the buffet. With the stunning mirrors and beautiful wood table, there was no need for table linens. The ornate mirrors worked well with our "Bollywood" themed party. We used every room of the venue, there are plenty of seating options. We offered inside (air-conditioned) as well as outside seating, which was perfect for an early summer evening. The dance floor was great and their recommended DJ kept the music flowing. The twinkle lights in the patio added just the right amount of lighting. There is abundant parking just across the street, making it one of the only downtown venues where you don't have to pay to park or walk several blocks in your high heels to get to. I love the Bates Mansion and would highly recommend having your next party there. Kelly will take you through the venue and as soon as you walk through the door, your head will be spinning with ideas that will make your event perfect. Thank you, Kelly, for giving us the perfect place for our family to celebrate our Aaliyah's sweet sixteen! Wish I had better pictures to show you, mine do not do this venue justice!Sent on 07/20/2018
