About Greektown

If you're looking for the perfect example of how different communities within the greater Baltimore area can have their own unique identities, look no farther than Greektown. Officially recognized as running from Lombard Street in the north all the way to O'Donnell Street in the south, Greektown has been home to the Greek-American community since the 1930s. Originally known as The Hill, locals petitioned the city council to officially change the name to Greektown in the 1980s. In 2012, the area began a striking revitalization effort and now has a lot to offer just about everyone.

Getting Around Greektown

Around Greektown

As is customary with most of the other areas in Baltimore, most of the residents live in two- and three-story rowhomes - although there are many apartment complexes as well. Located in the eastern portion of Baltimore, Greektown effortlessly blends quaint, comfortable living with an urban look and feel, giving residents a "best of both worlds" perspective as move through their daily lives.

As one might expect from an area called Greektown, authentic Greek food is one of the highlights of the neighborhood. There are tons of local hot spots, including authentic Greek coffee houses, bakeries, and restaurants like Ikaros Authentic Greek Restaurant, which opened in December of 2014. If Greek food isn't your style, or if you don't want to eat it all day, every day, don't worry. You're still close enough to other communities (like Harbor East and Little Italy) where other options are available.

If you're planning on moving into the Greektown area, one thing you can absolutely expect to see is your neighbors. Greektown is currently home to only about 600 families, giving it a quaint sense of community all its own. Despite proximity to the greater downtown area, it doesn't necessarily get a huge amount of traffic. While Baltimoreans come to the area to enjoy an authentic Greek meal, you can usually expect nights (particularly on weekends) to be limited to local gatherings. That's not to say that Greektown doesn't have its own sense of pride as it's home to several annual events, like the Baltimore Greek Festival and Parade.

A Friday night in Greektown usually consists of a laid-back evening sitting out on your porch (particularly during those warm summer months), unwinding with your neighbors and having a Natty Boh (or two, or three...). If you're feeling like you want to get out, you could head a few miles to Inner Harbor, which is always a bevy of activity year round.

Residents looking for peace and comfort will love the fact that the perfect Sunday in Greektown is just as laid back as the rest of the week. If you're looking for a good brunch, you would probably check out Meli Cafe or Artopolis, both of which have diverse menus perfect for Greek-influenced brunches and lunches.
