Historic Fifth Street School

Las Vegas



Officially called the Las Vegas Grammar School, the complex has informally been referred to as the Fifth Street School almost since its inception, due to its location on Fifth Street (renamed Las Vegas Boulevard in 1959) in downtown Las Vegas. Billed as a "cultural oasis" in the midst of downtown Las Vegas’ office and legal corridors, the charming mission-style school creates a beautiful setting for your special day. Envision a twilight outdoor ceremony on the expansive Centennial Plaza, complete with warm stucco details and plenty of space for your friends and family to witness you exchange vows. After your nuptials, guests will enjoy cocktails beneath the Spanish-tiled covered patio while you take flawless photos throughout the school’s historic exterior with unique architectural features. Later, a fun and festive reception takes place in the school’s auditorium, with wooden floors, tall ceilings and recessed lighting setting the mood for your special evening. For an intimate and romantic wedding celebration, choose the Historic Fifth Street School.
