Spaces available for rental

 

Cabaret

The Cabaret Theater is where Wright’s love of Asian art is most elaborately illustrated, with a large Chinese dragon motif emblazoned on the double doors and the central display of a Ming Dynasty cast-iron Buddha head. The cabaret allows your guests to make use of original Wright-designed chairs, seats, and tables, while the unique shape and construction of the space create optimal acoustics so that someone sitting in the back row can hear a faint whisper from the stage.

Indoor space seated 50/standing 60

Cabaret Terrace 

Your guests will savor their time on the Cabaret Terrace surrounded by Wright’s famous organic architecture. The panoramic views overlooking the Sonoran Desert and the lights of Scottsdale create the perfect intimate setting for your event.

Garden Living Room

The Garden Room was and remains the showpiece of Taliesin West, with its dramatic canted roof. It’s the space where Wright, his family, guests, and apprentices would casually socialize every weekend. Designed and remodeled continually by Wright, it evolved from an open patio facing the original vegetable garden into a spacious enclosed room furnished entirely with Wright-designed furniture and original accessories. This is the perfect space for discerning guests desiring a uniquely Wright experience.

Indoor seated 25; standing 40

Garden Room Lawn 

Facing the Garden Room, and originally the vegetable garden that provided fresh produce for the community, this Japanese-inspired garden now comprises a beautiful lawn flanked by historic Wright-designed Sprites from Midway Gardens.

Outdoor seated 70/standing 90

Garden Squares 

‘Aiming for the Mark’, a bronze sculpture of an archer created by Wright’s apprentice Heloise Crista, welcomes you to the Garden Squares. This vast event space at the heart of Taliesin West is surrounded by the Pavilion, Wright’s office, and the Drafting Studio, so that your guests are immersed in all things Frank Lloyd Wright. This space is large enough for any event you can dream up.

Outdoor seated 400/standing 550

Kiva 

The Kiva, which gets its name from an underground chamber used by Pueblo Indians for religious rites, was one of the first structures built on the property. It has served as a dining room, movie viewing room, lounge, and library. This hidden treasure has five different lighting techniques designed by Wright which create an inviting ambiance for any select event.

Indoor, seated 15/standing 20

Music Pavilion

Opened in 1957, this is the last structure Wright added to Taliesin West. A symphony of red seats, curtains, and carpeting celebrates what Wright believed to be one of the life-giving colors of creation. The Pavilion continues to function as a multi-purpose hall for exhibitions, concerts, parties, and public meetings.

Indoor seated dinner 120-150/standing 200/theatre 126

Pavilion Terrace 

Situated just outside the Music Pavilion, the Pavilion Terrace features Wright’s former apprentice Heloise Crista’s many sculpture masterpieces. Take in breathtaking views of the Valley from this serene space.

Outdoor seated 50/standing 65

Prow & Sunken Garden/ Sunset Terrace 

The Sunset Terrace is a triangular terrace that steps down gradually to the Prow. On the east, the terrace faces the garden room (1940), the Wright family’s living quarters. At the front of Wright’s desert laboratory masterpiece is the Prow, a triangular garden and lawn with geometric beds filled with native plants that extends out to the view that Wright called “standing on the rim of the world.” There is no better view in the Valley than the Prow at sunset, while the main buildings Taliesin West and the backdrop of the McDowell Mountains softly change color as day flows into evening. The Prow is a full 360 degrees of splendor and awe.
