A handsome Spanish Colonial home, the West House, with its plant-filled courtyard and welcoming patio is home to the Tohono Chul Park Tea Room and Museum Shop. The Tea Room can be rented and makes a unique setting for weddings and receptions. As many as 200 can be accommodated for a reception site. The Chul Room provides an intimate setting for small (up to 16 guests) private daytime parties such as bridal/baby showers. The Park’s Tea Room caterer must be retained when renting these areas.
Also in the West House is the newly-renovated Wilson Room, a perfect spot for multipurpose use with a seating capacity of 60 - 70. Added on its western side, a tile-roofed porch with gorgeous sunset views will create an outdoor setting for a variety of events. The Park’s Tea Room caterer must be retained for all food and beverages when renting this area.
Renters have access to nineteen 42-inch round tables and 70 wooden dining chairs. A limited number of folding chairs and rectangular tables are also available upon request. All additional rentals are the responsibility of the renters. For weekend evening rentals, the Wilson Room is included with the Tea Room Rental which adds seating for a total capacity of 200 guests, 125 of which can be seated in various sheltered areas.
