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.Sent on 06/11/2019

Great Experience with Helpful Staff
Can not say enough good things about how our wedding day turned out working with The High Five! The staff walked through every step of the way with us as we planned for 10 months - they were always responsive to questions and open to suggestions and ideas to make work for wedding day. The week of the wedding, they were very organized, and so helpful to let us in early to the venue to set everything up so our day-of could be very low stress setting up! We had our ceremony and reception at the venue, and they did a beautiful job making the same space beautiful and different for both events. Thank you for all of your help! The space is gorgeous and they are so nice to work with...would highly recommend!Sent on 12/09/2019

In Love With This Space
We had our ceremony and reception at The High Five and we truly couldn’t have asked for a better venue! The whole team was so easy to work with and we were able to rest knowing that every detail was taken care of. The day of our wedding, all of our guests were wowed by the ceremony space and the reception space and everything flowed so smoothly. I’m so glad we found this space and can’t thank Marija and Leslie enough for helping make our wedding everything we’d hoped for!Sent on 10/26/2019
