The Whiskey Factory is a banquet hall wedding venue situated in Detroit, MI. Found within the confines of a historic downtown property, this one-of-kind location operates as both a premier event space and an operational spirit distillery. Spread out over 7,000 square foot with a stunningly ornate industrial interior, it offers couples a unique venue to create unforgettable celebrations. It features a range of facilities and an event coordination team to help you every step of the way. Every inch of this venue exudes a sense of vintage style that combines the rustic with the modern. Whiskey barrels line the walls and it even features an original vintage bar constructed in the 1920s. Originally designed as a brewery for the Goebel Brewing Company in the 1930s, it became an ice-cream factory after prohibition turned Detroit into a dry city.

The Whiskey Factory is perfect for celebrating every stage of your wedding, from your walk down the aisle right through to the last dance. With its spacious layout, it can accommodate gatherings of up to 250 guests, with room for a dance floor and live entertainment. The event coordination team will help you every step of the way, offering a range of preferred local vendors from caterers to florists. As it is a functioning distillery, there are also a variety of beverage packages to choose from, including artisan cocktails featuring spirits crafted in-house. Whatever your dream wedding looks like this superb venue will provide a timeless backdrop that will ensure that you savor every last drop.

COVID Minimony Miracle
When COVID forced us to replan with a minimony... the Whiskey Factory came to the rescue.Sent on 06/11/2021
Alyssa (Event Sales Manager) was prompt when answering emails (of which there were many!) and was gracious enough to work with both myself (planning from the East Coast) and my parents to get everything set up.
Caitlyn (Event Coordinator) was wonderful to have (on top of our own day of coordinator). She reached out to ensure that drinks were set up correctly, the day of... she helped with staging for photos, including making sure we got some shots on the rooftop. They made the day easy - with florals, a beautiful head table, blue tooth speaker.
The venue itself is just cool - the bar is beautiful, the aesthetic of the whiskey barrels and industrial feel is unique. The premade cocktails were beyond delectable. Shout out to TwoUnique Catering for the amazing charcuterie boxes. (We took extras of both with us on our honeymoon!)
This was not the wedding as we originally planned and it was perfect and we are so glad the Whiskey Factory was available on short notice.

Best decision ever!
The space at the Whiskey Factory is beautiful. It is beaming with character and very little is needed to spruce it up and make it special. The cocktails are fantastic and are sure to be a standout feature of your event. Most importantly, the staff is warm and kind, willing to jump in and help at a moment’s notice. My wedding was originally scheduled for Spring of 2020 and had to be rescheduled because of pandemic restrictions. Alyssa and her team were incredibly patient and understanding. By the time we finally got married almost a year later, I felt like they were family. They did everything possible to ensure our day was perfect, going above and beyond to help us cross the finish line (finally). I am eternally grateful I chose the Whiskey Factory for my venue, and I can’t recommend it enough.Sent on 03/31/2021
