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.

    Roostertail Wedding

    Special thank you to Nicole, Ava, and Shawna for making our wedding day so perfect. The preparation and commitment from the team made our wedding night amazing. From the beginning steps to the execution on the wedding day, the staff was always on top of the items that we needed to ensure a fun, energetic and exciting night. We were lucky enough to have the marine room with the side patio for our special occasion. The location, view and atmosphere was absolutely amazing! If you’re looking for a properly planned and executed wedding venue along with a highly
    motivated staff I highly recommend the Roostertail.

    Magical! Call Shawna you’ll see!!

    After initially finding the Roostertail back in 2019 and pushing off our wedding a year due to the pandemic, we finally got married this last Saturday!!! My husband (yeah I can actually say that now!) and I wanted a Detroit wedding through and through. We visited several locations in the city, but when we came to the Roostertail, we knew it was the right place…..and the reason why…..SHAWNA!! First off….what an amazing person! Second off, she totally got us! She unlike anyone else we spoke with actually listened to us and then began to make what we said a reality! Everyone else simply threw pricing sheets us!!! During that first meeting, we didn’t talk wedding as much as we just talked, like we all knew each other for years!!!! As soon as we woke up the next we called Shawna and booked!! Aside from marrying my husband, best decision ever!! I could truly write a whole book on all the amazing things Shawna did for us throughout our two year dealings! As a new bride, I NEVER once worried about ANYTHING, because I had my Shawna!! And when our big day finally hit….she somehow even managed to have it be literally the best day of the year weather wise…..see magical! The venue itself is one of the most amazing you will come across with a staff that was so attentive and sweet, I wanted to steal them all to come work for me!!!! I do believe that almost everyone who attended the wedding came and told me it was the BEST wedding they’ve ever been to! Please, if you are looking to get married anywhere in metro Detroit……do yourself the biggest favor ever and just call Shawna at the Roostertail! Thank you Roostertail for a magical and unforgettable experience…. You are very lucky to have someone like Shawna there! And thank you Shawna for giving me the most perfect wedding ever….and most importantly thank you because I have gained a new wonderful friend for life!!

    Best Wedding Decision We Made!

    We got married in the Club Room at the Roostertail in October 2021, and everything about our experience with this venue, staff, event planers was PERFECT. Nicole was our day-of coordinator, and she was so helpful over the entire course of wedding planning. From the moment I first reached out to the venue, she was on the phone with me that afternoon with a package totally tailored to us and our wedding vibe, and I could tell she truly cared about delivering us the best day ever. AND Roostertail makes planning and personalizing your wedding package super super easy. That kind of care eliminated sooo much stress during the planning process...and even on a hectic wedding prep morning, we never doubted everything at the venue was under control & would turn out beautifully.
    Our wedding was just over 2 months ago now, and we're STILL getting stellar feedback from our guests about how much fun they had, how amazing the food was (we did cocktail style instead of plated sit-down dinner, and it was just *chef's kiss,* and so filling), how attentive/professional/friendly the staff were, and how beautiful the location was.
    Literally, our wedding day would have gone so differently if we got married anywhere else, so I'm endlessly grateful we made the decision to put our day in the Roostertail team's hands.

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.
