Book Your Wedding with No. 5 Faber
A HISTORIC VENUE IN CHARLESTON, SC
In the heart of the historic French Quarter in Charleston, South Carolina, is No.5 Faber Private Events—a quaint, red brick building located along the cobblestone streets of the downtown area. The glass and wood doors open to a romantically beautiful brick-and-wood space fusing Old World charm and upscale, modern facilities. The building is a converted warehouse that is now a fee-based private events space offering space rentals for wedding ceremonies, receptions and rehearsals. It is conveniently located near churches and hotels and is just walking distance from the beautiful Charleston Waterfront Park.
No. 5 Faber Private Events is a huge space that has multiple rooms to accommodate up to 225 guests. It has a cozy reception area with a coat check room, service station and two dining areas. The warm lighting, brick walls, stone floors and dark wooden walls are consistent features in every room and add to the romantic ambience.
The venue has a built-in full bar area for hosting a cocktail hour where guests can chat and mingle with one another while waiting for the reception to start. The bar is equipped with a marble bar top and six bar stools.
The mezzanine lounge area is a smaller space with low ceilings and shiny wooden floors. It has four high-backed half-round banquets and bench banquets and a satellite bar, making it an ideal space for cocktail hour overflows.
What You Should Know

The event coordinator can provide a list of service providers the venue has worked with and recommends. A contract and deposit is required upon booking of the venue.

Couples have the option to bring liquor but are required to have a licensed bartender to distribute the alcohol. Flowers and other decorations are allowed in the venue, but attaching decor to the walls and lighting fixtures is prohibited. Candles can be used as long as they are in an enclosed container and loose grains such as rice and birdseed are not allowed. A cleaning fee is included in the final bill but setup has to be arranged by the wedding party or your caterer.
Couples can rent the facility for a maximum of 15 hours any day of the week. To-be-weds are only allowed to enter during the time stipulated on your contract.
