A good place to walk and see the night life. Great to see at night. Plenty of shops and places to eat. On the weekend everyone is partying and on a game night everyone flocks to the area

Greektown in Detroit is a must visit. Even if you don't stay for dinner, it's hard to resist the pastries including Baklava. The area is clean and easy to get around with history all around you.

Were looking for some Greek food, maybe a take away place to get Gyros. Instead, the area now is just bars and restaurants that appears to cater to a younger crowd. Absolutely nothing wrong with that, but it is most definitely not Greektown anymore. Found...More

I spent my youth in Detroit, and a favorite pastime was going to Greektown. Such a bustling and vibrant area, the aromas of foods being prepared permeated the air as you walked. Of course, New Hellas was our favorite...now long gone. In 2019, there is...More
