Welcome to the Urban Grove!
Entering the Urban Grove through a gated-entryway with date palms lining a long driveway, offers an atmosphere resplendent of the ”old world charm” of a Spanish Colonial territorial home. Original Mexican Saltillo tile and stone floors throughout the home, wood beamed ceilings, a dedicated round dining room– with 18-foot-high ceilings and a huge beehive fireplace are a few of the elements that enhance this wonderful 1970s home, that has been maintained to perfection while carefully preserving the original charm and details from a bygone era which create an authentic Southwest ambiance that is unmatched.
The Urban Grove hosts and collaborates with local and visiting chefs to come into a space to teach cooking classes while using the latest and most up to date equipment. The grove kitchen’s open layout lends itself to entertaining with an easy flow from inside to a large outdoor covered patio.
The Urban Grove has the ability to accommodate parties of up to 120 guests outdoor for seated and up to 200 guests for standing cocktail parties; its layout also has the unique ability to allow an intimate ambiance for smaller indoor and outdoor parties of under 60 guests. The outdoor space features the perfect space for outdoor dinners, client experiences, and outdoor cocktail parties.
We also offer to local chefs who would like to create delicious intimate pop-up dinners cooked in our kitchen and served to their guests in a farm to table setting.
The Urban Grove is available as a perfect setting for your next meeting, celebration or unique one of a kind events. Our outdoor and indoor spaces offer a variety of settings for social events, family reunions, fundraisers, a small intimate wedding or just your own special party. We welcome and collaborate with local event planners who know how to incorporate the grove into your special event.
About The Grove
The Urban Grove is a private residence located on the Northwest side of Tucson, AZ. Once part of a historic 450 acre citrus grove dating back to the early 1920’s founded by Mr. M.L. Reid. Mr. M.L. Reid was an amateur horticulturalist of the original citrus groves and father of Gene C. Reid (first director of Tucson City Parks and Recreation) later to become the namesake of Reid Park in Tucson. Today The Urban Grove continues to thrive as a small but intimate citrus grove, date palm oasis and home to other varieties of fruit trees and gardens. It now opens its doors as an exclusive event space.
