Saguaro Basin

Scenic Desert


The Arizona desert is defined as the exclusive home to the saguaro cactus, and the Saguaro Basin venue celebrates its beauty in spectacular fashion. Native plants support the abundant, mature saguaros that serve as a striking backdrop for any event or featured event element — from bars to head tables to ceremonies. Benefitting from the McDowell Mountain horizon, Saguaro Basin feels remote while remaining accessible, offering cell service alongside open space for 250 guests who might want to celebrate into the night.

Near Scottsdale, Arizona

Venue Only

Memorable moments are anchored by their setting. At Open Venues, we understand that celebrations have the ability to imprint themselves on those who experience them, and the sights and sounds of a venue plays a vital role in that. It’s why we make our scenic venues — from legendary outdoor lands and architectural gems to urban lofts and studios — available on their own. Think of it as a blank, but beautiful, canvas for the unforgettable moment you’re hoping to create.

Best of Both

Events don’t just come together on their own. This package allows you to reserve your scenic venue of choice along with the furniture needed to make your event a memorable one. Choose chairs and tables in a wide variety of styles to ensure you find a look that perfectly matches the tone you’re hoping to set. And if you need help sourcing other elements for your event, we’re happy to share our trusted referrals.


Every event requires its own soundtrack. And most call for some type of culinary element. With this package, minimize the time it takes to secure furniture, catering, entertainment and beverage service from individual vendors by rolling all of these necessities into one. We’ve curated a trusted network of preferred vendors, because we love the way they work and the work they do, and with this package that network is available to you to bring the vision you have for your event to life in the most memorable way.
