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!

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.

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.

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. Krista and the staff at Five were wonderful! She was always 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!

I found FIVE Event Center on TheKnot.com and it was the only venue my husband and I chose to see. Krista was great at showing us around the venue and extremely helpful in answering all of our questions (and the many emails I sent her 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. Since we had a destination wedding, this reception was going to be a celebration of a marriage that had already taken place a few weeks earlier. We had dessert, a candy bar, photo booth, DJ and Video of our Wedding playing. 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.

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!

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.

The venue is very nice and modern. I loved the location and the vibe of the venue. However, the wedding planner I originally worked with left and it went downhill after the change. Lots of mistakes and follow ups were needed. Then the day of wedding the planner just seemed put out by having to be at the event. I did follow up with the owner and he was unresponsive and unconcerned about the issues we experienced.
It is unfortunate the unprofessional staffing at such a beautiful location.

FIVE Event Center responded with the following comments:

The woman who wrote this review is the Brides mother. She was upset with getting charged for her guests poking holes in the fabric of the booths. There were before and after pictures taken. The damage deposit was held ,which did not even begin to cover the cost to recover the booth. They did not pay the additional cost that was billed to them and threatened a poor review if I did not refund the deposit as well. Please see every other review Five has had before considering this one
