Established in 1958, Roostertail is a well-known wedding venue in Detroit, Michigan. Bordering the Detroit River marina, its various banquet halls boast a tasteful blend of modern and industrial styles. Panoramic glass walls adorn every floor of the building, with private entrances leading to patios and balconies. Here you can celebrate your nuptials in the same venue that hosted special guests like Aretha Franklin, Eric Clapton, and The Rolling Stones.
Facilities and Capacity
Roostertail has direct marina access with awe-inspiring views that set the stage for its two outdoor ceremony spaces, the deck, and the side patio. For indoor receptions, couples can choose between three rooms to suit either intimate gatherings or sizable celebrations. The Club can host between 15 and 90 people and features urban-inspired and vintage details like filament light bulbs. A concrete bar and wall-length fireplace gives this space an ambient and cozy atmosphere. This charming and intimate setting is perfect for couples who value style as well as a laid-back feel. The Palm River is the largest event space with a maximum capacity of 800 guests and boasts breathtaking views of the Detroit skyline. The high-definition sound system and LED lighting complement a fantastic dance floor experience, making this customizable space perfect for those who appreciate lively celebrations. The Marina is every bit as appealing as the other two banquet halls but with an added measure of luxury. This room possesses an element of romantic grandeur with its 40-foot flowing water fountains and ascending dance floor. Steal a quiet moment by its relaxing fireplace area or marvel at the beautiful waterfront views with your loved ones.
The highly trained staff at Roostertail has the essential experience needed to look after your wedding details. Couples can relax on the big day with the support provided by on-hand professionals. Various rentals are offered to complement your vision such as silver Chiavari chairs and a selection of linens with corresponding accents and decor. Additional services, such as valet parking are also available. Every couple planning their wedding at this venue are offered a champagne toast for the head table to mark the special occasion.

Stunning Wedding Venue on the Detroit River
My husband & I had our wedding end of September at the Roostertail. We had originally planned for a destination wedding but had to cancel that due to the pandemic. We had to quickly find a venue. My husband had reached out to the staff at Roostertail, specifically Nicole to get a quote. During the stages of choosing a venue, Nicole was the only wedding coordinator that continued to reach out to us, willing to make our vision work with our budget. Once we decided to go with the Roostertail, we had to plan our wedding in 3 months. Nicole did an AMAZING job keeping us up to date on the latest news, how to keep our guest safe & really kept us organized with our wedding planning. She listened to our wishes & made it all happen. We really wanted a tropical style wedding, & she made that dream come to life. With little details such as palm trees next to our sweet heart table on the beautiful gazebo surrounded by water, the food being delicious & matching our theme (kabobs, coconut rice, & a banana pie), the beautiful blue & champagne table linens. It was SUCH a beautiful day & the beauty of the gazebo at the Roostertail enhanced it that much more. So happy we decided to go with the Roostertail. They made our dream “tropical style destination” wedding come true. Forever grateful!!! Would highly recommend. Nicole you were the BEST!!!Sent on 10/21/2020

Look no further!
The Roostertail is incredible!! I just got married there (ceremony and reception) and everything was like a dream. Nicole is the most amazing wedding coordinator and she is so attentive! We must have asked her a million and one questions and she answered them all! The staff was able to make our mid-pandemic wedding safe and fun for everyone by moving our wedding to the gorgeous outdoor side patio, offering table service for drinks, and doing a plated dinner rather than a buffet. Everyone was in proper PPE (mask, gloves) and all of our tables were socially distanced. Did I mention the view? Being right on the Detroit river is breath-taking and the cool breeze is unbeatable. We could not have asked for a more magical experience. Thank you so much to everyone at the Roostertail for making our wildest wedding dreams come true!Sent on 08/01/2020

Everything we wanted and needed in a wedding venue
Very easy, straight forward and accommodating.Sent on 03/26/2020
The Roostertail offers two charming wedding ceremony sites and we've had the pleasure to perform weddings at both of them. They have a phenomental staff that is able to personalize each wedding. No two ever look the same. The Roostertail is an icon in Detroit and they have decades of experience in this area.
