The trendy (trendy is a key word for younger people) style and social atmosphere (changed from savvy) that draw younger groups, while captivating sophisticated crowds is the reason why the Roostertail is one of the most popular places to host a prom in Southeast Michigan (i didn’t like how we said ⅓ of proms are held here because it’s not a majority percentage). High school proms create unmatched, lifelong memories, which is why quality, atmosphere, and style are of utmost importance at the Roostertail.
