Bricktown divides Greektown from the Renaissance Center, world headquarters for American auto giant General Motors. This historic district is home to the Wayne Country Courthouse, the Wayne County Building, and Detroit's oldest church St. Peter and Paul's Catholic Church. Bricktown knows how to have a good time, with nationally touring musical acts at St. Andrew's Hall and the Shelter. Just around the corner is Jacoby's German Biergarten, a vintage 1904 saloon that features aspiring music acts and a fortifying German sausage soup to accompany your beer.
Getting Around Detroit

Hours of operation are 6:30 a.m.-midnight Monday-Thursday; 6:30 a.m.-2 a.m. Friday; 9 a.m.-2 a.m. Saturday and noon-midnight Sunday.
