The newly reopened 5th of Novi is a current, fresh take on the old 5th Avenue Ballroom. Owners Melissa and Matt Osborne wanted to not only offer craft beers and wine, but they wanted to re-imagine the general bar experience. That’s why there is a gaming area and a space exclusively for events on the second floor.
