Celebration Spaces

Set the Scene for a Romantic Wedding and Reception

The Refinery is the ultimate wedding venue in Oklahoma that’s able to host your entire event from rehearsal dinner to reception, all in one place! It boasts two floors of flexible events space that’s ideal for large weddings, though corporate parties, private galas and more intimate events are beautifully hosted here as well. We even offer five private hotel suites in the adjacent historic Jewel Box Hotel that allows you to stay at the venue with your family and friends. Any event is highlighted by the historic architecture, authentic details and industrial style found throughout, and the iconic views of downtown Bartlesville can be admired from our oversized windows or private rooftop.

“I loved the fact that we could have our big day all in one place. 
It has unique little side rooms that was perfect for catering
and for photo booth set ups, and plenty of space for dancing!”

Flexible Reception Space

For larger weddings, couples wed on the second floor, and host their reception on the third. Each floor offers ADA bathrooms, catering facilities and elevator access – for an ideal one-location venue!

Single Level Celebrations

Smaller weddings and events can take place on the third floor only, which offers the same locations for ceremonies and seating, and looks lovely with guests seated at tables for a different feel.

Get Ready for Your Big Day or Stay On-Site in Private Suites

The “Jewel of Downtown Bartlesville,” as listed in the National Register of Historic Places, is a 115-year-old historic building on the main street of downtown Bartlesville. Now named the Jewel Box Hotel, it was fully restored in 2015 and the apartments were added in 2017. All of our private accommodations include a queen-sized bed, renovated bathroom, a full kitchen, workspace, and all the comforts of home. Along with an elevator and keypad entry, these second-floor units offer convenient access through a private hallway in the historic Johnstone-Sare Building, where some of the biggest oil deals were struck, and historic figures like Frank Phillips and J. Paul Getty had their first offices.
