One of the coolest areas in Detroit. Something for everyone and it looks awesome. Casino, bakery, Greek food....and New Orleans food (Fishbones)....and an Irish bar (Old Shillelagh)....Mexican (Loco Bar)...and everything in between. Great for people watching especially on a game day.

Go early in the afternoon for some sightseeing, grab a drink at one of the new hip places around Greektown or visit a classic Detroit bar, then go for dinner and drinks at any of the several restaurants and bars around the area.

We walked from the Crown Plaza, which wasn't far, but we were the only pedestrians except for a few shady characters. The food at Pegasus was ok. The area was relatively clean, but the speakers in the street were very loud for the time of day and lack of crowd.

A very cool section of downtown Detroit, Geektown offers a wide variety of shops, restaurants and the Greektown Casino. Right in the heart of Detroit with lots of parking and access to the People Mover you can't go wrong spending the day or night here

Very cool little part of town with lots of character (and characters). Lots of restaurant choice and tourist shopping. Take the people mover as the traffic is awful.

So much to see and do on this street. Enjoy the casino, catch the people mover, many different fun resturants and places to grab a drink. Very safe and bustling place in the city.

There are so many restaurants to choose from. I always loved the Pegasus;used to go there years ago before the Casino was there. Love gambling at the Casino, but went there last Friday, Mar 24 after a show. We tried to get valet and they would not admit us there because of some special promotion they were having. The Greek...
