    Exceptional

    Our guests enjoyed their time in the venue and we received wonderful compliments indicating how much they enjoyed the facility. A total win for us and our guests! The management was so responsive and attended to all of our requests promptly and cheerfully. Everything was set up the way we requested. Tables, chairs, bathrooms, AV, all new and top notch in an urban chic room.

    Our wedding at Hi-Five was a dream!

    We had our wedding at Hi-Five this past October and it was the perfect place for an indoor wedding reception! The venue is warm, elegant, charming, but also modern. Our ceremony was at the church across the street so it was the perfect location for us. The venue space is just beautiful with exposed brick walls, wooden floors, big windows overlooking Grand Rapids, and stunning chandeliers. The venue space maintains its character as an old roller rink but is also very polished. It was perfect!!

    The staff at Hi-Five provided everything we needed for the day to go smoothly. Communication was clear and easy in the days leading up to our wedding, and they really went above and beyond to make sure everything went according to plan - coordinating with the caterer, florist, and other vendors as well as setting up decorations and creating a floor plan.

    We used the fourth floor for our cocktail hour and fifth floor for our reception at Hi-Five. It was great to have a still beautiful and simple place for guests to gather for a drink and hors doeuvres on the fourth floor before heading upstairs.

    We could not have asked for a better staff, location, city, or venue for our wedding. My husband and I are so thankful for the hard work Hi-Five put into making our day so special and memorable!!
