Downtown's Upcoming Bar Adorns Self With Statue of David

New, 27 comments

This morning we learned that Greektown is dead. Or at least it is not Greek anymore. But that does not mean you can't see some nice Greco-Roman* statues in Detroit. Just pop over to the scene of the upcoming bar at Clifford Street which the people behind Louie's Ham & Corned Beef are working on. Sometime in the last few days, the corners got a male nude (David) and a scantily clad gal to adorn the corners. Oh and a giant American flag for the roof. Go 'Merica! Well in any case, it is nice to see the building that was exploded for a movie (Red Dawn) with glass in the windows for the first time in a long time. Now what can the statues possibly be trying to tell us about the interior decor to come? It's all Greek to us. * Ok so we did not really pay attention in Art History. Technically David is an Italian Renaissance sculpture.
