We were so happy we chose Five Event Center as the venue for our wedding. We liked the fact that it could host both the ceremony and reception easily. It was perfect as guests could head downstairs for the cocktail hour while they transitioned the upstairs space. The building is unique, has a cool history, and is in a great location in uptown. Five were wonderful! Al- ways so friendly and happy to answer my many questions. They accommodated everything we needed and helped to make the day go super smoothly. It’s a beautiful and fun space with excellent service that made the night perfect!

FIVE was a great venue for our wedding. The location was perfect in Lyn/Lake, and the modern, urban space suited our wed- ding wonderfully. FIVE was so helpful throughout the planning process – getting back to me promptly when I had questions and being extremely flexible as we were figuring out the schedule. I loved that I didn’t need to add a ton of decor to make the space feel special, and there were tons of layout options for us to use. It was great to have a live band play our reception as we danced the night away – not necessarily an option at all venues. Finally, I LOVED that we had the choice of what caterer we wanted (for a small fee). That added flexibility plus the great space was what clinched the decision for us.

The whole team at FIVE Event Center was AWESOME for my March 2014 wedding! They had tons of suggestions for how to best utilize their space, how to set up the reception, and how to schedule the evening. Kevin and I also had our ceremony at FIVE, and their team was able to turn the ceremony space over into reception space very quickly while we had cocktail hour downstairs. The space is beautiful and has a lot of really unique photo opportunities. They are also very close to Uptown, which gives you a ton of flexibility for cabs or shuttles to nearby hotels after the reception is over. I would highly recommend using FIVE Event Center!!

I found FIVE Event Center on TheKnot.com and it was the only venue my husband and I chose to see. FIVE was great at showing us around the venue and extremely helpful in answering all of our questions (and the many emails I sent afterward, very promptly). We loved the history behind the building, and thought it was unique compared to other wedding reception venues we had been to for other weddings. We also loved that free parking was offered to our guests. We loved that there were two floors, and it’s perfect for a mix and mingle type of wedding, but can easily be made to fit any event. We also loved that we didn’t have to bring a lot in to decorate since the ambiance is perfect the way it is. We did not have one issue with this location and would do it all over if we could Definitely recommend this event center.
