The Rubi is a wedding and event venue in Tucson, Arizona. It is a family owned business located in the heart of the historic downtown Tucson. The two-story Italianate Victorian revival-style manor was built in 1903 and combines an intimate venue space with lodging for friends and family. It is a stylist, sophisticated venue with a modern minimalist approach.

The Rubi staff is helpful and accommodating so that your planning process is easy and stress-free.

HIstory
The Rubi was built when Arizona was still a territory for Owen Rouse and his family. 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 it was purchased by the current owners, Tom and Susan Cassidy who continued renovations and converted it into an art gallery.
