    Absolutely Amazing!

    The venue is beautiful! Elegant and timeless! The staff is incredibly helpful, from planning, through the big night! Our daughter's wedding was perfect. The Staff was so helpful! They were even available the Monday morning after the wedding to help me load up our decorations! I highly recommend the High Five!

    Amazing Venue

    The High Five is an amazing venue. They are currently in renovation of the 4th floor into a ceremony location that way the beautiful reception hall can be just for that, your reception. The ability to have ceremony and reception in one place was very important to us. The reception area is to die for. No pillars, original hard wood floors, amazing chandlers, brick walls, and high arch windows.
