Tucson Wedding Rehearsal Dinner ideas needed

hans Sep 5, 2007 07:35 AM

We need a spot for about 30 people for a wedding rehearsal dinner in Tucson. Any ideas? Downtown/central would be best given the large number of out-of-town guests and the wedding being held downtown.

Poca Cosa is great but does anyone know if they have a private area for that size group? We also thought about getting a private room at El Charro downtown for a true Tucson experience. Further away but certainly appealing is Hacienda del Sol.

Any thoughts on these or other locations would be very much appreciated. What else should I be considering?

    I'd highly recommend Hacienda del Sol. They are "tops" for group events, and make the planning process a dream. I don't know about rooms at Poca Cosa. Certainly El Charro is memorable, but their party facilities are cramped and don't make for a nice group setting. I love Kingfisher, and the room is OK, but just OK. Another possibility--nice room, good food and central--is Cuvee, located on Speedway east of Country Club. They are also great to work with!

      If you're willing to get as far east as Cuvee, they ARE terrific! I'm also wondering if any of the 6th ave / south central mexican places have party facilities. Mariachi music, margarita's and Sonoran could be a nice stress reliever for a rehersal dinner.

      I don't think Poca Cosa has a facility for that many, unless they'll set aside their patio for you... that MIGHT seat 30. Downtown El Charro does have that kind of space, as I recall, but I don't know what their group policy is.

      Pastiche has nice group facilities, you might check them out.

      Kingfisher is a little less downtown, but also has a nice group room.
