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.

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!

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!
