Located on downtown Phoenix’s Van Buren Street, which was once the route for multiple highways and home of Arizona’s first drive-in movie theater, The Van Buren is a new addition to the local music and arts scene. Originally built in 1939 as an automotive showroom for the Phoenix Motor Company, the historic space is the perfect location to host your next corporate event, private concert, wedding, reception or business meeting. Located less than a mile from the Phoenix Convention Center, The Van Buren accommodates 150 to 1,500 guests. Our talented staff handles every detail, so you don’t have to!

With access to the world’s greatest musical entertainment, full-service event production, state-of-the-art lighting and sound, custom menus and mixology, this unique 20,000 square-foot venue will exceed expectations of even the most discerning guest. The venue is comprised of four distinctive event spaces: the outdoor Patio and stunning Lobby, the Showroom and the exclusive Mezzanine. The outdoor Patio and stunning Lobby offer a great setting for registration, cocktail hours and smaller events, while the Showroom is ideal for large seated banquets or receptions, and the upstairs Mezzanine level serves as an exclusive space for VIP events.
