My husband and i looked at a lot on venues. We were getting to the point where we were about to settle on a place because we just weren't finding the " this is it" place. As soon as we walked into the Five Event Center we knew that this was the place we wanted to get married. The staff is wonderful to work with, answers any questions that you have, and very quick at responding to those questions. They were very patient with us when we were deciding how we wanted things. I'm not saying this just because it was my wedding, but it was hands down the best wedding I've ever been to, just because of the five. I would defiantly in the future consider renting out this location for a different occasion. I recommend this place to anyone i know that is getting married.

Walking into FIVE the first time I instantly knew that we would be married there. The venue is beautiful, modern and unique. What I didn't expect was the amazing service I would receive from that day until well after my wedding day. The staff is always available to answer questions and let you do (yet another) walk through of the venue. There weren't any surprises and everything we had talked about was done. They even handled my set-up and clean up including loading a trailer for us so we wouldn't have to do it ourselves. I worked in hospitality and saw many different events take place but I have never seen anywhere with this type of great service and professionalism. If you're looking for a venue do yourself a favor and stop by FIVE. You will be blown away! Thanks to Krista and the rest of the staff.

We LOVED this space! It is so funky and different and was incredibly elegant once we had it decorated for our reception. People raved about how cool the space was. It is not your typical ballroom or country club atmosphere.

The people that work at Five are so fun and flexible. I dealt with our event planner weekly and she was so on top of everything. We felt completely comfortable having our trust in her that the evening would be spectacular.

The only thing I would do differently is, because we drink a lot of wine with our family/friends, we would have done the specific brands of wine brought in for a fee. We went with the house wines and they were not a big hit. We were thinking that we didn't want to pay anything extra, but it's worth it.

I would absolutely use Five for any other event.

P.S. We had 130 people and I would not want to have more than 150 in the downstairs bar area for a cocktail hour. It would be crowded.

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at FIVE last month and it was a fantastic experience. Chelle was great to work with! She was incredibly helpful and quick to respond to emails. FIVE was the perfect venue for us, the space is amazing, modern, unique and fun. Everything, including the transition from ceremony to reception went perfectly! I received a lot of feedback from guests that LOVED the atmosphere. I am so happy with our choice, FIVE was wonderful!

My wedding was 12.1.12 and took place at the FIVE Event Center in Minneapolis, MN. I cannot rave enough about the level of service, professionalism and warmth that I received from Krista throughout the planning process and into the big day. This venue is hands-down the most modern and beautiful space I've seen and I've felt confident in my decision to choose FIVE from day one. With the day now behind me, I know I made the perfect choice. I enjoyed the flexibility of working with outside caterers and vendors of my choice to put together a reception that was reflective of my groom and I's style. Krista was terrific at staying in communication with me at all points of the planning process and touching base with all of my vendors for a streamlined and hassle-free evening. I would highly recommend FIVE Event Center above all others as the perfect venue for your wedding reception

Working Chelle and the entire staff at Five Event Center was more than an exceptional experience. I felt like I had a personal wedding coordinator at all points in the planning process and could not have asked for better. The venue was perfect for the feeling of my wedding I was going for from the lighting to the brick walls to the cocktail lounge. Our ceremony was beautiful, the transition from ceremony to reception was flawless and the staff anticipated our every move. I highly recommend this venue to anyone who asks, in fact, we had several people ask more information that night!

Everyone at FIVE Event Center is so personable and fun! They made us feel like our wedding was the only one they had been planning for the last year and we couldn't be more grateful! Not only did FIVE help us with the details for the venue, but they provided us with a list of recommended caterers, photographers, bands/DJs and so much more! The staff at FIVE made the entire wedding planning experience so much easier and any time I had a question about anything pertaining to the wedding, my coordinator Kelly, was right there to help me and responded promptly to all my needs. Again, we are so grateful and I would tell anyone who is planning a wedding in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area to definitely consider FIVE. We had so many positive comments from our guests and they loved the intimacy of the venue. It's the perfect place for the modern bride and groom to have a traditional wedding with their own personal style added in!

We’re so happy we decided to have our wedding ceremony and reception at FIVE Event Center. It was the perfect venue for the modern, fun, personal celebration we wanted. First, the building itself is amazing. It has the vibe of a cool, urban club or restaurant. Between the lighting, the furniture, and the painted walls, we did not need many decorations. We were also able to save money by choosing our own caterer (Jimmy John’s and Chipotle!), which most venues will not allow. The best part of having our wedding at FIVE was working with our event coordinator, Chelle. During the entire planning process (which took place over the course of 15 months), Chelle was extremely prompt and thorough in responding to our emails and phone calls. She listened to all our crazy ideas and found ways to make everything work. At our meeting one month prior to the wedding, I was beginning to feel nervous about making sure everything would come together without a hitch, and Chelle set me completely at ease. The week of the wedding, she checked and double-checked every detail and contacted our vendors to make sure our deliveries were coordinated. On the day of the wedding, everything turned out perfectly! We were able to enjoy our party without worrying about if there was enough food, if the tips would get to the vendors, or who would pack up our gifts. We would also recommend using the Apres Party Rental company, which works with FIVE.

We had our daughter's wedding ceremony and reception at FIVE in June. It was a wonderful experience, from the ease of booking and making arrangements to the day of the wedding and reception. The staff at FIVE were informative and helpful without making us feel pressured. We were able to have exactly the kind of wedding she had envisioned. We received many compliments from guests on the venue, saying it was one of the most fun weddings they had attended and that they loved the atmosphere at FIVE.

From the first day we called FIVE to the days after our wedding, everything was extremely easy and well-managed. We held our reception only upstairs and it was the perfect setting. Jennifer and Chelle were extremely responsive at all hours of the day and any day of the week, and they thought of everything we would have forgotten. The only minor thing I'd improve on in the future is allowing people to keep tabs open at the bar, instead of requiring payment for each drink. This is only after our hosted bar was over anyway, but still, might even lead to more revenue if it could be managed. But that is not at all an important issue on your wedding day - book with FIVE and don't worry about anything else. They'll take care of it!

My new husband and I had a fabulous wedding ceremony and reception at FIVE Event Center. When we were looking for a venue, we toured FIVE and after that no other venue could even come close to competing with it. FIVE is gorgeously decorated and the staff is so helpful! I received prompt answers to all of my questions before and after we decided to book it for our wedding. All of our guests also fell in love with the space. We received so many compliments on what a beautiful and fun place FIVE is, and our guests were also very impressed with the quality of service! I am so glad we ended up choosing FIVE for our wedding, I wouldn't have changed a thing!!

My husband and I did not want a stereotypical hotel ballroom for our reception. We wanted something classy, elegant, chic and fun....we also wanted to show off our city, so urban was a must. FIVE Event Center was the ideal location.

The Space is everything stated above plus it is very easy to get to and provides free parking. We decorated with votive candles and minimal flowers that we bought at the farmers market - the space is gorgeous on its own. We were able to have our guests gather on the main floor (picture the lounge of a restaurant) for drinks while we took a few quiet moments upstairs to ourselves. It was so fun to hear the noise build as more and more of our guests arrived. Finally, we were introduced as Mr. and Mrs. as we came down the stairs to join our guests. It was a wonderful and overwhelming feeling to be standing on the stairs and being able to see ALL of our closest friends and family. This also provided an easy way to say a few words to the group and then greet everyone individually before the whole group moved upstairs for food, toasts, drinks and dancing. The tremendous staff made the transition extremely smooth. Once upstairs, our guests were further impressed by how beautiful and modern the space was (picture part upscale restaurant and part dance club). Another benefit to mention is that it was equally as comfortable for guests who wanted to sit and have a conversation as it was for others who wanted to party and dance. The room's acoustics are set up so that you can easily carry on a conversation on one side of the room while watching the dance floor (and not have to scream over the music).

The Staff is AMAZING!!! I can't say enough about their professionalism, friendliness and how great a job they did. Jennifer was our main contact and she was outstanding! From the first time we met her, all the way through the planning process and even after our event (when I left my shoes there and she held on to them for a month). She took so much stress and responsibility off of our shoulders. We gave her our contacts for food, music, photos, etc and she organized everything. Again, I could go on for hours about how happy we both are. Additionally, I should mention the other staff...this sounds clich� but it's true, our guests actually commented on how friendly the staff was. Another great thing is that we didn't have to deal with a million questions about where, when, what, etc. because the staff took care of that.

Finally, and this may be hard to believe, our wedding budget was under $10,000. FIVE Event Center will work with you to meet your needs and vision for your event.

We could not imagine a better place for our wedding reception. I told Jennifer at FIVE that either my husband or I would be honored to tell others about our experience.

I had an amazing time working with the staff at The Five Event Center. The site is absolutely beautiful so you save a lot of time and money since you don't really need decorations. I'm a big Pepsi drinker and they accomodated my request to carry only Pepsi products that night. :) I will always recommend this site to other brides and party planners. Please go and check them out if you are planning an event. It'll blow your mind away!!

Working with FIVE Event Center was great. Everything was clearly layed out from the beginning. The service we received was always prompt and professional. We choose FIVE originally because of their flexibility in allowing outside catering and we were happy every step of the way with our decision. Every time we went to the space for a meeting or to set up we liked the space more and more. Our event went off without a hitch. At and after the event many of our guests commented on the unique and fun atmosphere as well as the quality of service from the staff.

FIVE was a great venue for our wedding. The location was perfect in Lyn/Lake, and the modern, urban space suited our wedding wonderfully. Krista 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.

I loved FIVE. We worked with Krista at first, and then Chelle, both of whom were enthusiastic, helpful, and professional at every step of the process. Chelle acted as our wedding planner of sorts the day of, and it was so great to have her as the point person. The venue itself is beautiful, clean, and modern, and our guests really enjoyed the separate rooms — upstairs for the ceremony, downstairs for the cocktail hour, upstairs for the reception — it broke things up and helped with crowd control. Costs do add up — alcohol is pricey, and you have to pay for a security guard — but overall we felt good about the value. We paid extra for setup, and as a result FIVE had everything taken care of so we worried about very little the day of the wedding. I highly recommend this venue.

We had our reception at FIVE Event Center and worked with Lesley, Chelle and Krista (mostly Krista) and had a wonderful experience!! When I toured it with my sisters and fiance, we all fell in love immediately and knew it was the perfect ambiance that we wanted...modern, chic, lounge-like, its absolutely gorgeous. I worked out a deal with FIVE because the rental fee is very expensive and really all you get for that is the space, tables and chairs. I negotiated a contract with them including alcohol sales and the rental fee that worked with my budget, and they were accomodating! I ALWAYS got an email response within a few hours, and all the coordinators were VERY polite and professional!

We had a walk through two days beforehand and Krista had everything taken care of. We decorated ourselves the day before, and she even offered to help and light the candles the day of!

We chose Green Mill for the caterer (one of their "preferred caterers") which I also highly recommend, not only because Green Mill was awesome, but because if you don't use one of their preferred caterers, you incur a charge. The other charge we got that I wasn't totally expecting and don't really agree with, was a $197 charge for our photographer who didn't have a very specific insurance, so he had to be added to their insurance, so read the contract. You also have to pay hourly for the bartenders and a cop if you are having alcohol. I would think all of that would be included in the high rental fee. That was the only reason I gave them a 4/5 for flexibility.

I received sooooooo many compliments about the space and bartenders being awesome, and Krista was right there the whole night for any last minute questions I had! The whole night was the BEST night of our lives, and all my guests had an absolute blast, the dancefloor was packed the entire night! FIVE is an amazing place to have your wedding and I highly recommend it!

I would recommend FIVE Event Center for anyone looking for a unique wedding venue spot. I had many guests at my wedding comment that it was the best venue they'd been to for a wedding. It is a fantastic setting that can easily be personalized and yet doesn't need much in the way of decoration since it is already full of character. You have the entire venue to yourself for the event (downstairs bar area and upstairs ceremony/reception space) which allows you and your guests to truly enjoy the evening without worrying about what else is going on around them.
The staff at FIVE is incredibly helpful and worked with me every step of the way which was especially difficult since I live out on the East Coast. The day went off without a hitch in large part due to the staff at FIVE.
The cost may seem a little expensive however with the ability to select your own caterer and no food minimum as well as the savings of needing decorations helps.
Regardless I would recommend FIVE without reservation!

My fiance and I toured this venue. There was on street parking and it wasn't too hard to find.

The person who helped us was great. The space is amazing! Seriously AWESOME!

The only reason we didn't choose FIVE is because of the cost. You have to rent your own chairs, pay an off duty cop, ... It was just the little expenses that didn't fit into our tiny budget. The venue we choose includes a free hotel room and is a little cheaper.

I would definitely recommend FIVE! Even though I didn't choose it, I LOVE it! Definitely go check it out. You need to see it in person.

At FIVE, our pricing structure is different from many other venues in the Twin Cities. We breakdown all the costs of your event in detail, so you know exactly what you are paying for - there are no surprises!

That being said, initially we can seem more expensive, but we know that we maintain a competitive edge with venues similar to ours and our pricing reflects the quality of our facility and service.

I am happy to announce that FIVE includes all tables and chairs on-site - no rental is needed! We are constantly striving to make improvements to better ourselves and make events flawless.

FIVE Event Center was the perfect space for our wedding reception! We looked at several venues in the area- and nothing came close to the uniqueness of FIVE. I wanted a unique venue, that didnt need much decorating and good service- and we found it! We received so many compliments on what an awesome venue we chose. I worked with Chelle and I cannot say enough about how great she was! She was very prompt when responding to me, gave suggestions when needed and very flexible. Chelle did a great job at making sure our reception ran smoothly and that we all had a great time.

FIVE is truly one of the best/most unique reception sites in Minnesota. It was absolutely perfect for our smaller reception with around 110 guests. We toured other event centers, ballrooms and hotel locations but nothing is even close to FIVE. The downstairs bar is amazing and absolutely perfect for the cocktail hour. The people we worked with were extremely fast at getting back to us on all of our questions and they made sure everything was taken care of throughout the event. They were flexible, easy to deal with, professional and a lot of fun to work with!

We loved the uniqueness of FIVE as a wedding venue! Guests are still raving about the space and what a great time they had. Outside of the unique feel we really like the ability to choose from a variety of catering companies to find the best fit for our non traditional wedding meal.
FIVE made the day of the wedding a breeze for us we were able to enjoy ourselves without having to worry about all of the behind the scenes details. Once the venders were selected FIVE staff took over the coordination of equipment needed, arrival times, timeline for the day, etc... The Decor Service fee was well worth the money we dropped off decor and directions the day before and while we were enjoying cocktail hour with our guests staff was busy setting up all of the decor and at the end of the evening everything was packed back into boxes and available for us to pick up on Monday.
FIVE Event Center really set the stage for us to have the out of the ordinary wedding that we were looking for and that all of our guests would enjoy!

A little spendy with some hidden fees that they tell you about at the beginning but had to pay for later. (They had us pay for the cop that was there the whole time and they charge the caterer a fee to use the space which then gets charged to you. But the experience was well worth it! It's a BEAUTIFUL space.

From the moment we stepped into FIVE we knew it was the place for us. It's a beatuful venue and our guests raved about it at the wedding.

The staff made planning the event a cinch and were very professional in thier tasks. In general they responded to our questions within a day or so, but one downside is that the event managers aren't in the office to answer questions before 2 p.m. if you have a question that needs to be answered right away.

It is a more expensive venue, but the open catering policy evened it out a bit since you can use any licensed caterer from the Twin Cities. In all, if you are looking for an eye-catching venue, FIVE is it.

We’re glad you and your guests enjoyed your experience at FIVE, as we enjoyed hosting your wedding! The staff at FIVE works as a team and while it may not be your assigned manager in the office, there is at least one of us in the office from 9am-5pm Monday through Friday who can answer any questions you may have. We also try to be flexible on the day of the event when it comes to our arrival time so we are here to answer questions as they come up. We also strive to plan every detail to the tee prior to event day so less last minute questions arise on your big day. Thanks for the review and keep us in mind for future events!

BEAUTIFUL and UNIQUE venue space!! Uptown's hidden gem!

So many different ceremony and reception floor plan options.

There is no other venue in MN that even compares to the uniqueness that FIVE has to offer. People loved all of the little hidden surprises around the space (the bathrooms are my favorite). The picture opportunities are endless in and around the venue-- a photographers playground!

Krista was so enjoyable to work with! She was so attentive and responsive throughout the planning process, with every little detail right up to the last minute.

Bar/liquor options are pricey and I wish they offered kegs instead of bottles... but one has to expect higher prices when having an event in Uptown.
