D-scene: Nov. 7-13
For years, the simple venue on 14 Mile Road in Madison Heights has maintained its Irish roots (if only by name). That all changed on October 19 when the Orange Barrel made its debut. The sports bar and grill replaces McLovin's Irish Sports Bar (pictured) which opened last April. The two-story, 3,000 square-foot bar was also the Naughty Irishman, which closed after about four months, McCool's Sports Pub and Shenanigans.
