Distinguish your event by setting it against an iconic historic backdrop. As a multi-level raw space with both indoor & outdoor areas, the boat house is a blank canvas for our clients to shape. And because we are an affordable raw space, our clients are free to choose the vendors best-suited for their event.
Offering a myriad of room combinations, stunning panoramic river views & adaptable room layouts, the Belle Isle Boat House (formerly the Detroit Boat Club) is the perfect venue for those looking for a distinctive, uniquely-Detroit experience.
The Belle Isle Boat House offers a wide range of interior spaces, including the historic ballroom, spacious dining rooms, multiple bar/lounge areas, a minimalist studio/exhibition space, and a newly-renovated conference room. Many of these spaces also include their own private outdoor terrace.
Nestled right along the Detroit River, the venue's outdoor spaces include a recently-restored bandshell amphitheater originally built in the 1930s as well as an open, grassy garden & picnic area.
Customize your event by taking advantage of all the options this raw space has to offer—such as allowing outside vendors, being pet-friendly, and providing flexible room layouts. The Belle Isle Boat House also has a wide variety of available rooms & spaces each with its own distinct story.READ LESS
