Celebrate Greek Independence Day in Greektown
Greek Independence Day is upon us and there are endless ways to celebrate in our neighborhood!
If you’re looking for a place to feel immersed in Greek culture on March 25, look no further than Greektown Chicago. You can find the traditional Greek Independence Day meal – bakalao with skordalia (fried cod) or bakalao spetsiota (baked cod) – at Athena and Greek Islands restaurants. If you’re in the mood for a traditional Greek gyro to celebrate, pick one up at 9 Muses Bar & Grill or Mr. Greek Gyros. For dessert, stop by Artopolis Bakery & Cafe and choose from their wide variety of Greek sweets. If it’s a traditional gift you’re looking for, visit Athenian Candle Co. Cap off the evening with Spectrum Bar & Grill’s March specialty drink, created to celebrate Greek Independence Day all month long: the Ouzo blue cocktail!
And enjoy some special memories from Chicago’s Greek community by viewing our Greek Independence Day Virtual Celebration from last year, posted on the Greektown Chicago Facebook page.
