Get ready to celebrate at The Whiskey Factory, one of the city’s newest private event venues conveniently located between Downtown and Eastern Market.

This venue is steeped in history and heritage, as it once housed Goebel’s Brewery, and decades later, the Stroh’s Ice Cream factory. Today the site is home to Detroit City Distillery, creator of small-batch spirits – whiskies, gins, and vodkas – made with locally sourced ingredients.

Invite your guests to step inside a working distillery and be immersed in a sensory feast of fresh grains, shining copper stills, and the hum of distillers at work. Transport them back in time in the rustic second story rickhouse, artfully converted to intimate event space with a rustic-industrial vibe. With a vintage 1920s bar as its focal point, the space features the original exposed brick, concrete columns, and is lined with whiskey barrels, each in a different stage of aging. This distinguished venue is truly unforgettable!

Venue Tip

Blend the art and craft of spirits production to make your celebration distinctive. Add a tour, whiskey tasting, gin & tonic bar featuring seven different small-batch gins, or even custom-create whiskey with our distiller to serve to your guests.
