Costas Village Bar, formerly Costas Village Bar, has been a bar since 1926. Costas would like to invite you to  their Grand Opening this Thursday August 16 for the ribbon cutting and reception with the city of Wayne’s Mayor  & City Council from 4-5pm followed by a performance by Broken Arrow Blue Band from 7pm-11pm. Grand opening specials all day long!

Long time owner Gus Roussakies and his brother and business partner John Roussakies owned the bar since the mid to late 1950’s. They cared greatly  about their customers and the community. Now the bar is reopened with a mission and the same great tradition that lives on today. 

The family of Gus and John have kept the tradition alive as well as honored the history of their other Grand  Father Virgil Ciungan – who owned the famous Ciungan Shrimp house in downtown Ecorse, MI. Ciungan shrimp and fish is a featured item on the menu through out the week and especially on Friday. In that way two great family traditions merge in the Grand Opening of Costas Village Bar and Grille. 

Part of the new life of Costas Village Bar was bringing on River’s Edge Gallery art & design with Head Designer Patt Slack and Jeremy Hansen. “The bar needed some TLC, the structure and bones of the structure are all there. It was a pleasure working with Costas and bringing his passion for rowing and love for family tradition as part of the design”

The new decor has framed rowing jerseys won by owner Costas Ciungan along with a diplay of old newspaper clippings and vintage photographs from his grandfathers rowing days. (also an accomplished rower as a teenager) 

The walls are arranged to show historical photographs of the bars infancy along with original owner Gus  Roussakies’ “jois de vivre” and passion for the bar he created. “It was very important to show the lifespan of the  bar from 1950’s when my grandfather owned it and share his love of community and the fantastic parties and  celebrations that have taken place. I can’t wait bring back that tradition.” says owner Costas Ciungan.

Costas Village Bar’s mission is to span the power of optimism through creativity and the continuation of tradition,  which requires the finest ingredients in our recipes, top of the line customer service, community engagement, and the maintenance of charming accommodations.
