Does anyone know the location of this new sports pub in Detroit?

The old Steel location at Gratiot at John R, kitty-corner from the Rhinocerous Club across from the Hilton Garden Inn...I just jogged by it yesterday.

If I'm not mistaken I saw the outside of this bar. It is around the corner from Harbor House. And, I believe it faces gratiot, next to subway!

I hope that entire corner gets filled in. Looks like some nice office space on the top level with the red brick above this new Pub.

It seems like that corner could take off and start connecting Greektown and Harmony Park - would love to see that!

I agree Bobj. I think a great catalyst for this would be the storefront at the corner of Brush and Macomb. If something could be done to improve that corner I think it would help to connect that popular walking corridor.

I have always wondered why there was never a successful nightclub/bar/pub etc. in that location with all of the foot traffic between the stadia and Greektown. Seems like it would be a no brainer for a couple of pints before/after a game

The Bat Lounge was there for a long time before the owner was killed.

The city must do something to address pedestrian safety there, as you take your life into your hands crossing Gratiot. And I once rear-ended someone at the corner of Gratiot and Broadway that's a horribly confusing intersection to navigate.

I agree, Treelock. As a pedestrian, I take my life in my hands trying to get through that intersection of Gratiot, Randolph, and Broadway. The traffic lights have a multitude of settings for the various traffic directions and while it may seem safe to cross on the "wait," in an instant a car may be (legally) barreling through the intersection.

I thought Seifu (of the Blue Nile and formerly Tiffany's) owned the Bat Lounge. As far as I am aware, he is still very much alive.

Not Seifu. The name is totally escaping me, but he was decapitated on his motorcycle riding home drunk on his birthday.
