With over 40 years of history, the Roostertail has made its mark on Detroit. Originally downtown's premiere host of the early Motown scene, the Roostertail is now a special events facility on the Detroit River. The boat race weekend in late summer cannot be missed. The Roostertail boasts the largest all weekend boater party for this 'Gold Cup' occasion. The party starts early Friday morning and doesn't end until late Sunday night.
