About Roostertail

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.

Services Offered

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.

    Shawna was my everything while planning from North Carolina.

    Planning a wedding is an exciting but, stressful time in a bride's life. Then life happens and you have a million other things going on all at the same time. After deciding to get married in Detroit, I did my research from a far and fell in love with the Roostertail - sight unseen. People thought I was crazy when I told them I booked a venue I hadn't seen in person. Outside of my diligent research and reading 100s of other reviews, there is one word that explains my final decision to sign on the line. SHAWNA. She is amazing. Not only did she understand my vision immediately- she understood me and my fiance as people. She was able to make suggestions that were exactly what I wanted even though I gave her a scattered description of what I thought I wanted after a long day of work. When my fiance and I decided we wanted to share how we like to eat with our guests and not have a sit down dinner but, do tapas and heavy hor d'oeuvres all night long- she rolled with it and made my dreams come true! She knows how to read people, and truly is an asset I never thought I would have the pleasure to work with. She is personable and professional, never pushy, and always responsive. Shawna consistently went above the call of duty and even listened to me cry about things completely unrelated when I was having "one of those days." It's not hard to find a beautiful venue (although few are AS beautiful as Roostertail)... there are so many. What is hard to come by is a venue with a reputation as outstanding as The Roostertail, few places have been serving the community as an event center as long as they have. I can't say enough great things about my experience and encourage every bride to do your research-- the options, packages, level of service, attention to detail, love and care that the Roostertail provides is unparalleled. If you want to know that you won't have to worry about a thing on your wedding day, and that someone has you covered on all the days leading up- you want to get married at The Roostertail.

    The Roostertail is amazing!!!!!

    We had our ceremony and reception at The Roostertail and it was absolutely amazing! The marine room was gorgeous and all of my guests said it was the most beautiful wedding they have ever been to! They were also raving about the delicious food! Nicole was a dream to work with! She was super attentive and responsive and went out of her way to address my questions and concerns. Having her made my wedding planning life so much easier! Thank you to The Roostertail for giving us our dream wedding!

    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.
