Best Experience Ever!

We just had our wedding at Red Mesa in March of 2023 and it was absolutely incredible! From the start of the planning process Leigh was more than amazing. She answered every email or phone call promptly and with the best attitude. The venue itself is stunning, we got married on the rooftop and rain came through during cocktail hour and the team was quick to pull the walls down. It was great! The ballroom is beautiful and the staff was so helpful and nice. The food was OUTSTANDING! We had many people say it was the best wedding food they've ever had, my husband and I would agree! We had the perfect experience and would highly recommend to anyone looking!

Amazing Rehearsal Venue!

My husband and I got married in July 2023 and we had our rehearsal dinner at Red Mesa Cantina. We absolutely loved the space and our guests had such an incredible time! We rented the De Santo rooftop area and the views were incredible. Anastasia and Leigh were so helpful in the planning process. They made the whole process stress-less and enjoyable for me. They even let me drop off my decor the day before, which was so convenient. Their team decorated the space and packed it all up for us. The food and drinks were VERY delicious!! We would absolutely recommend this venue to anyone looking to host a private party or event.

Amazing wedding venue in downtown

Red Mesa was the most beautiful backdrop for our wedding. The event space is stunning and it was so unique to get married on the rooftop overlooking the city.

I cannot rave enough about the service we received during our wedding and planning process. As all the reviews state, Leigh is amazing as the event coordinator. She was with us every step of the way and was incredibly responsive to any questions. Jenni was great the day of, and made sure everything went off without a hitch.

We chose the venue for the food and drinks and they did not disappoint. Loved the margaritas! The ballroom was the perfect space for 90 guests where we danced the whole night.

So grateful for such a wonderful experience!
