Welcome to the Roostertail! Our modern and private facility is renowned for its location on the Detroit waterfront with a unique dining atmosphere, fashionable décor and first-class customer service. When all of these factors work together, it creates what our clientele call the “Roostertail experience.” We have been “home” to generations of Detroiters and are proud of our grand traditions for excellence and First-in-Class status as a Detroit icon.
The Tail, as it is sometimes affectionately referred to as, was originally built in 1958 by the Schoenith family. As host to some of the most talked about parties in the city of Detroit, including the famous hydroplane boat races, it has continued on as the waterfront entertainment complex.
Owners Tom and Diane Schoenith have taken the family business and expanded it from its auspicious beginnings to include hosting proms, weddings, New Year’s Eve parties, Mother’s Day Brunches, promotional events, fundraisers and corporate events.
We cordially invite you to have a look around the site and discover just what the Roostertail has to offer today and how our staff can help cater your next special occasion.
Host your next party or celebration at The Tail with our excellent event packages including catering, food, drinks, dancing, DJ or live band options. Be sure to check the calendar full of awesome open events as well!
