We've been here a number of times. Good place for foodies and shoppers. Walkable. Close to hotels and sports venues...and gambling.

This was a lively area of downtown and close to the people mover. Fun at night when everything is lit up but also ok during the day with some decent bars open onto the street. Greektown is only really a couple of blocks but seemed a good neighbourhood close to central Detroit

I visited a few restaurant's on this stretch, the food is great and the street has a good vibe. Not a great nightlife place but I'm sure it'll change. The green town hotel casino is decent and mostly has restaurants that serve Greek food. You also have the famous fishbone restaurant on this stretch, a must eat place for Detroit... More

Lively spot in the downtown Detroit area to enjoy dining and nightlife. Many options to choose from both authentic Greek and others. Greektown casino and hotel is located here and it is a short walk to Comerica Park and Ford Field. The People mover stops here as well so it is a quick ride to other areas in the city.

We came to Detroit to visit family and stopped in Greektown because we heard so much about the food as well as the casino! I finally was able to eat a REAL Gyro. It was delicious. Lol, I would drive back just for the Gyro.

After the tiger game, we walked through Greektown to see what was going on and to get to our car. There were many people enjoying the night life. But one thing that I saw that I did not appreciate was cops looking at their cell phones while on the job. Really! Their presence is appreciated, but they should be vigilant,... More

We love this area and usually visit once a year. It is very safe, usually cops on every corner doing nothing 😀. Great bars and restaurants in the area with a lot of sports arenas.
