Why We Love The Big Tin Cotton Gin
As an Arizona Native, I have found that many of the venues of Arizona feel like they could be in another place. That’s where the Big Tin Cotton Gin shines.
It captures one of Arizona’s Five C’s (all you natives know what I’m talking about): Cotton. And really gives you a reminder that you’re in Arizona.
Not to mention that the MOSO team is the best. Julie is so kind and helpful, your guests will feel like they are home. This is what you want in a venue. – DJ Javier Carlos
