About

$6k - $8k For 100 Guests

The Historic Bates Mansion is a vintage wedding venue situated in Tucson, Arizona. Owned and operated by husband-and-wife duo David and Allie Lazarus, this enchanting property provides celebrations of all shapes and sizes with a rustic hacienda-inspired backdrop. The mansion was once occupied by businessman C.T.R Bates and was the meeting place for the prestigious local institution, the Mountain Oyster Club. David and Allie first fell in love with it when looking for a venue to host their own wedding festivities. Upon purchasing the property, they began redesigning it to provide private events with an inviting old-pueblo-style atmosphere right in the heart of downtown Tucson. It has been fully renovated for a feeling of both comfort and convenience and features inviting event spaces, invaluable amenities, an in-house caterer, and more.

It is perfect for hosting every stage of your celebration, from your joyous engagement party to your fun-filled reception and everything in between. The entire space is fully-furnished to radiate a unique sense of character, with stunning views of the Tucson City skyline and the Catalina Mountain Range. For added convenience, get-ready rooms are also available, allowing you to prepare for your special day in secluded peace and privacy.

    Beautiful, intimate and just what we wanted

    Bates mansion was the first and only place we looked at while shopping for a venue. Kelly was so welcoming and helpful through our entire planning process. More even when trying to navigate a pandemic.
