On WeddingWire since 2012

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.

Roostertail absolutely delivers!!

Incredible views, amazing service, and top notch support in making our dream wedding happen, are just the top of the iceberg. Nicole knows her stuff, is meticulous with details, ensuring the wedding and/or reception are executed to perfection. We had so many compliments and cannot rave about them enough. Highly recommend!!!

Top Tier Detroit Venue!

I cannot put into words how grateful I was to have the Roostertail host my wedding! They were so organized from start to finish and truly made it a PRIORITY for me and my now husband to enjoy our day. The food was great, the bartenders/team not only sent us drinks over all night, but found out what we wanted ahead of time and everyone was extremely kind and attentive all night. The beautiful upgrades to an already amazing layout also made decorating so easy! My guests are still telling us how beautiful our wedding was! This is a beautiful venue that is enhanced by the level of customer the team provides! I am sincerely a happy bride. 💛

Above and Beyond

It’s hard to put into words the gratitude that I feel to the Roostertail for making our day so special. My husband and I got married and had both our ceremony and reception at the Roostertail on 9/23/2023. It couldn’t have been a more beautiful day! The venue is so beautiful, the food was incredible, and the staff is amazing. Plus, the musical history of the Roostertail cannot be beat - one of the first things that had drawn us to the venue! My guests continue to rave about the view, the deliciousness of the food and the great pours! I wanted to give a special shout out to Nicole and Ava. Nicole was our day of venue coordinator, as well as my point of contact throughout my whole wedding planning journey with the Roostertail - she was an absolute dream to work with and any bride would be lucky to have her on their team! She made me and my entire family feel so welcomed and cared for - she went out of her way to attend to my every need the day of my wedding. When she heard that our morning plans fell through with our hotel vendor so I didn’t have a breakfast, she offered up some of her personal snack stash to make sure I wasn’t starving during the ceremony. Ava was so helpful throughout the night to attend to the needs of my family and I. She heard that I liked rum, so she got me a flight of different rums to sample! She truly made me feel so special. The staff here truly cannot be beat, they treat you like family and they go above and beyond. You can feel that this is a family owned business through and through. The Roostertail went above and beyond to make our day the wedding of our dreams. We even got to meet the owners, Tom and Diane, while we were there and they gave us a gift on our way out. This place truly cannot be beat. It is truly special. We can’t wait to be back. We love being a part of the Roostertail family
