The setup allows for various layout and flow options. It features a full kitchen for guests and caterers.

This venue can host a range of wedding-related events, including engagement parties, showers, elopements, rehearsal dinners, ceremonies, and receptions.

The helpful staff strives to ensure that your planning process is easy and as stress free as possible.
The Rubi House was built for Owen Rouse and his family when Arizona was still a territory. Owen was an attorney that went on to serve as a Missouri senator before settling in Arizona in 1885. He then served as an Arizona territorial district attorney and associate justice of the U.S. district court. Both positions were appointed by President Grover Cleveland. The home was later owned and renovated by Pete Rubi, a Prima County Supervisor and Justice of the Peace. After Pete passed, the home was purchased by Tom and Susan Cassidy, who continued renovations and converted it into an art gallery. The property was recently acquired by brothers, Colin Reilly and Rob Reilly, who are eager to share this property for your special occasion.

Perfect Place for a Wedding
We found the Rubi House to be the perfect setting for our wedding! Tana was always available to answer questions and made sure everything was ready to go for our big day. The house is beautiful and the courtyard is amazing.Sent on 11/08/2019

Gorgeous space and great management
The Rubi is a beautiful venue and working with Tana was a wonderful experience. The packages were affordable and it was a bonus for us that we got to bring in our own catering (ourselves!) . Tana worked with is every step of the way and was very responsive if we had any questions. Would highly recommend if looking for an alternative to the Stilwell House or Z Mansion in Tucson if having a smaller wedding.Sent on 10/14/2019
