When looking for an event venue, it’s important to consider price, location, service, aesthetics, culinary options and perhaps 20 other qualities that will ensure an unforgettable experience. Chateau Luxe is an entirely unique event venue located in far North Central Phoenix that is unlike any other. It may also be one of the coolest hidden gems in the entire Valley.

CEO of Chateau Luxe, Ben Ostro, has been with Chateau Luxe since shortly after it opened in 2015. “I still remember to this day, the first time I stepped into the building, I had this amazing feeling come over me… I call it the “Magic of Chateau Luxe,”says Ostro. “The staff, the facility, it all made me fall in love.”

He continues, “My mission here is to be a one-stop event solution and to leverage our expertise and innovation to support our clients in creating wildly successful events that make it easier for them to further their mission and create lasting memories.”

There’s nothing else like it in Arizona and is something you might expect to see in Las Vegas or New York City.

Chateau Luxe is a grand venue that includes a sweeping reception area with an elevated player piano, two massive ballrooms, outdoor patio space and a huge outdoor event terrace, complete with lighting, electricity, mature greenery, and all the support services needed to hold a successful event. Whether it’s a wedding, fundraiser, party, baby shower, family reunion, corporate event or gala, your guests will be in awe of everything at Chateau Luxe.

“Our team is focused on making sure that every detail is implemented and they’re willing to do whatever it takes to ensure that our clients and their guests have an outstanding experience,” explains Ostro. “I am also impressed how our team looks for ways to get involved in our community – from volunteering at St. Vincent de Paul, to finding nonprofit organizations who we can support through our Chateau Luxe Cares program… They have a lot of love to share!”

Chateau Luxe recognizes the importance of supporting other local businesses.

“When procuring goods and services for our company, we always look to work with a locally owned and operated business first. As a local business ourselves, we feel it is important to support other local businesses here in Arizona.”

The dedicated staff at Chateau Luxe knows there can be inherent challenges of holding an event, from space management and menu development, to centerpieces, décor and production.

Chateau Luxe is a grand choice for a quinceañera.

Whether you want to celebrate indoors or outdoors, opulence is always guaranteed, and there is a full range of colorful linens, centerpieces and customizable menu options that will allow you to orchestrate a once-in-a-lifetime celebration for that special young lady. The team at Chateau Luxe is also ready with referrals for a variety of supporting event services including DJs, décor specialists, entertainment, floral designers and just about anything else you can imagine.

Having the right menu for an event can also be a game-changer. Ostro says, “Our in-house culinary team can be as creative as you’d like from traditional to exotic and can accommodate any special requirements such as kosher, halal, gluten-free, dairy-free and nut-free, and our master mixologists can create custom craft cocktails that will have your guests talking for years to come.”

Abundant parking is a bonus. At Chateau Luxe, you can park or valet just steps from the entrance to the venue spaces, offeringboth a comfort and convenience for guests.

“For me, one of the most fulfilling parts of my work is hearing from clients about the impact their event had on them, their guests, and their organizations, says Ostro. “One of my favorite reviews I ever received was this…”

“Last night’s award ceremony was nothing short of amazing! I am not easy to impress, I have high expectations, but the Chateau team was absolutely unbelievable to work with. I have been planning events for the better part of 21 years at Visa and I have never experienced such a pleasant, accommodating, and truly lovely staff at any event center. We had a photographer who did not show up, and your team sprung into action and solved our problem within 60 minutes, and voila! There was a photographer…. We are so grateful. They tended to my every need and request within moments, and they did so with a smile. I received many compliments from our c-suite as well. It’s clear that this team cares, the staff of

Chateau Luxe is perhaps more beautiful than the venue itself. You should be very proud, and we WILL be back!”

“I love what I do!” finishes Ostro. “Each day there are new opportunities and new challenges, and we’re growing as a company, so it is always different and exciting. Being able to bring joy to others and be a part of events that are celebrating life’s precious moments with an amazing team is what keeps me going!’ Visit www.chateauluxe.com for more information or to schedule a tour.
