The High Five GR is a unique and versatile venue located in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids. Exemplifying the best of “old world meets new,” the iconic space is notably recognized for its original roller-rink hardwood floors, classic exposed-brick walls, extraordinary chandeliers, high wood-beamed ceilings, metal tresses, large fully restored windows, artisan tile, and glass details. Every corner of The High Five is a true work of art.
