Greektown was initially founded by Germans immigrants in the 1830s. The German started moving more downtown and the Greeks moved in. Not much of a residential neighborhood anymore, but the streets are lined with Greek restaurants, bars and stores. A great neighborhood to grab dinner and drinks. Make sure you order the saganaki...Opa!

Greektown Casino
Kind of took over the neighborhood for the past decade or so. Much of it was cleverly built into historic buildings, keeping some of the neighborhood character. Gamble, stay overnight or pass through to get your parking vaildated.
