Getting Your Freak On in Greektown

Oct 17, 2007
Greektown, part of downtown Detroit, Michigan, has been a cultural retailing district for more than 140 years. The area began as a pioneer farm, evolved into a German area, and finally became a Greek dominated neighborhood. The neighborhood is still made up of Victorian two- and three-story commercial and industrial buildings. It can be easily accessed by car, limo, luxury sedan or public transportation.

Greektown is currently home to more than 20 incredible restaurants, from fine dining to authentic Greek menus, pastry shops and the Greektown Casino. It also has famed Astoria Bakery, located on Monroe Street, which serves up classic Greek pastries and desserts. If you're in the mood for something ethic and hearty, go to the New Hellas Cafe or Pizza Populous.

As one of the notable structures in Greektown, the Second Baptist Church of Detroit was established in 1836 when former slaves left the First Baptist Church because it discriminated against African Americans. The present building was constructed in 1914 -- after a fire destroyed the original church -- and became the home of Michigan's first African-American congregation. Because the church was so near the Canadian border, it became a major stop on the Underground Railroad for slaves fleeing to the north.

The Greektown Casino is one of the most recent additions to the neighborhood opening on November 10, 2000, with its groundbreaking occurring February 1999. This 75,000 sq.-ft. facility has more than 2,400 Slots and 80 gaming tables.

Along with taxi cabs and luxury sedans, the People Mover elevated rail line conveniently picks up and drops off right inside the Casino for four-season comfort. Whether by cab, luxury sedan or People Mover, you are connected to more than 1,500 downtown hotel rooms. The casino offers year-round, 24/7 cutting-edge gaming, with a big emphasis on fun.

Greektown Casino's gaming space offers the newest, most exciting slots, video poker machines, poker room and table games. You'll find all the old favorites, including the area's largest poker room. And all the gaming fun is complemented by the friendliest dealers and staff in the gambling business.

The Casino's slots and video poker machines are the best around and you'll find all your favorites among the more than 2,500 slot machines. Plus the Casino is always searching the country for the newest, most cutting-edge machines.
And the Casino's slots come in every denomination: penny, two cents, nickel, quarter, fifty cents, up to fifty- and hundred-dollar machines.

Greektown Casino also has the large selection of in-house and wide area progressives linked to other machines within the Casino or with other casinos in the area. This provides the value of a larger jackpot for the same price.

Greektown Casino has the best live poker action in Detroit. Its room is the largest in town -- with 21 tables and smoke-free tables also available, a big number of plasma screens, and bar service. Remember to check out the new automated PokerPro tables, which combine the best aspects of online poker and live casino play.
