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!

February 10, 2016 we had my daughter Kelly's and her wonderful husband Dan's wedding celebration. Danielle our event planner from FIVE helped us every step of the way. When we saw the venue we were blown away by how beautiful the space was. Danielle helped us plan from start to finish. Our photographer called 3 hours before the event to cancel because of illness and Danielle helped us find an awesome husband and wife team from 85Photography to step in. I only had 2 months to plan and expedite the event and couldn't have done it without Danielle. She went out of her way for several meetings we had and was always available to help. She accommodated our budget restraints and made costs very clear and affordable. Our 200+ guests continue to rave about the space and how much fun it was. I will continue to recommend this space to others. We will miss you Danielle. Wishing you continued success in all you do.

FIVE Event center was the perfect spot for our intimate, cozy and urban winter wedding. We absolutley loved working with Danielle and all of the staff at FIVE. They went above and beyond to make our wedding just what we wanted. They were professional, always in communication and allowed some flexibility for us to make the event just the way we wanted. We loved the space, both floors, the amount of bar space and really everything. FIVE is so beautiful already that we didn't need to bring in many decorations to make it look fantastic. I would HIGHLY recommend FIVE event center for a wedding or any party. Thanks for an unbelievable night!

We knew the FIVE Event Center was going to be our reception site the moment we stepped in. It's incredibly reasonably priced and has a lot of character. The brick walls, wood floors, and stone steps give it such a classic, elegant feel and is SO much better than a typical hotel ballroom.

The staff (in particular Danielle) was incredible to work with. They were calm, cool, and collected the entire night which helped calm our own nerves right before everything started. They were available for questions always and got back to us right away. The two weeks leading up to the event Danielle reached out to us more than once to make sure we were doing okay and if we needed anything.

Since the bar details is done through FIVE Event Center we relied heavily on their advice on how much to offer and what tastes are generally good ideas. While we didn't have a full open bar (again, we were determined to stay on our predetermined budget), Danielle helped walk us through what we could provide within our budget and worked to get us the best price.

We truly couldn't have had the wedding we wanted without this event space and their fantastic staff. I would highly, highly recommend and if we were to do it over I think we'd choose the venue again!

I loved Five Event Center and from the moment I stepped in I knew it would be a great wedding reception venue. I loved the two floors so it was easy to allow for a great cocktail hour then a dinner and reception upstairs. It allowed for us to make an awesome grand entrance after we had already mingled with our guests downstairs. The space is gorgeous and you need very few decorations to put any final touches on it because of the decor in place.

It is more expensive than some other venues I looked at, but the location of it being near uptown is probably why. A couple guests told me that one of the female bartenders was rude, but I did not have a chance to interact with that person at all. The professionalism that I encountered with the staff on the day and leading up to it was okay.

FIVE was exactly what we were looking for. It provided character and Kelsey was fantastic to work with. She was responsive and knew what she was doing as well as suggested what has worked best in the past. She was flexible and was very accommodating when I asked to view the venue many times. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for something unique.

The space itself is impressive. It struck the hip/urban/modern vibe that we were looking for in our wedding venue. My husband and I also appreciated being able to select from a number of preferred caterers...many of the spaces were considering had exclusive deals with a single (pricey) caterer. We worked with Kelsey, and I can't say enough good things about her. She was upbeat and easy to work with, always professional, and prompt to respond to my questions, which of course became more frequent as the big day approached. FIVE handled our ceremony, reception, and all of the beverages for our event, including a champagne pour for toasts right after dinner.Overall, we were both very happy with our selection. It was truly an unforgettable day!
