Named for the five-pronged intersection of Santee Avenue, Harden Street and Devine Street, Five Points has been a diverse shopping and commercial district for 100 years. Originally envisioned as a trolley hub for Columbia’s first planned suburban neighborhood, Five Points has transformed into one of Columbia’s busiest and most charming, pedestrian friendly, commercial neighborhoods. This village neighborhood plays host to daytime activities such as sidewalk dining and shopping and also provides a wide array of service locations. At night, Five Points turns into one of Columbia’s best entertainment districts, home to over two-dozen nightlife hotspots.
Five Points offers its patrons a unique experience that cannot be duplicated anywhere else in the U.S. From funky, independent, daytime merchants to creative bar and restaurant concepts and more, the 150-business district leaves a lasting impression on anyone who visits.
