Long Road Distillers is Grand Rapids, Michigan's first distillery, crafting award-winning grain-to-glass spirits from locally sourced ingredients 100% on-site. We are not only dedicated to making world-class spirits right here in Grand Rapids, but also to curating the best cocktail bar and restaurant in West Michigan. The first floor of Long Road Distillers is a 90-seat bar and restaurant that allows us to highlight our spirits in a variety of handcrafted cocktails, paired with farm-fresh food.
The Rickhouse, Long Road's second floor, is dedicated to private events, cocktail classes, concerts and more. The word "rickhouse" refers to the name of a traditional whisky barrel storage facility, primarily found in Kentucky and Tennessee. The Rickhouse provides numerous views of the distillery and stills below, has two large restrooms dedicated to the event space, and has a standalone bar for drink service during events.
The capacity of the Rickhouse is 160, but for seated events, we try to keep the guest count to 120 people or less. This allows for an appropriate amount of room for food, dancing, and mingling.

Our wedding at The Rickhouse was perfect! It was a unique space and all our guests loved it! The food was incredible, the drinks were a huge hit, and all the staff were incredible!! They even worked with us last minute to add our ceremony to the location. It is so beautiful you barely need decorations. I highly recommend the space!Sent on 06/07/2018

We couldn't have been happier with our ceremony and reception location, The Rickhouse. First of all, the food was amazing and we got tons of compliments on the steak and all the sides. The drinks are obviously top notch and I love how you can select what you want served and have a variety of options for the bar rather than a set price per person. We chose to do a champagne toast for everyone and one drink ticket on our tab and the rest was on them, and that worked out really well. The space is gorgeous and everyone kept raving how beautiful it was and the best part is that you barely have to decorate because the room itself is a statement. All the staff were incredible and helpful. We changed out plans about 100 times and they were so accommodating. A couple weeks before our wedding, we realized our ceremony venue had construction and no parking. They made it super easy to switch it to the venue and help us get it organized. I would also like to add it is SUPER affordable. I don't know where else in town I could have afforded a nice steak dinner for 120 people! I can't say enough good things!Sent on 07/24/2018

We had our wedding reception at the Rickhouse in November 2016. They were absolutely fantastic for our low-key wedding. The food was phenomenal. The service was excellent and the drinks were top notch. They really helped make our day wonderful!Sent on 03/07/2017
