Popular Greektown Irish bar The Old Shillelagh is expected to re-open Friday night after a small fire earlier in the week.
In a post on the bar's Facebook page, The Old Shillelagh said they suffered a minor electrical fire in the lower kitchen on Tuesday morning.
With the quick work of the Detroit Fire Department and the fire suppression system, they said the first was contained with minimal damage.
The bar says the plan to reopen by 6 p.m. Friday night but the kitchen will be down for some time.
"We will have a simple outdoor grill running for the weekend, and we are looking into other avenues, as necessary," they wrote in the post.
As most of you have heard, we suffered a minor electrical fire in our lower kitchen early Tuesday morning. Thankfully, the very quick response of the Detroit Fire Department, along with our fire suppression system, the fire was contained with minimal damage. We are working with a professional fire cleanup company, Pro Restore, around the clock to get us reopened in a timely manner.
Our goal is to be opened by 6pm this Friday, 8/4/17, at the latest. Our kitchen will most likely be down for some time. We will have a simple outdoor grill running for the weekend, and we are looking into other avenues, as necessary. We are moving very quickly to get everything back to full working order as soon as possible.
Thanks to all of our friends for all of your concerns. It shows us how much everyone cares. Which is something that was much needed over these last few trying days. We are a family at The Old Shillelagh and you are as much a part of that family as anyone else.
