Corktown sports bar icon Casey’s Pub shut its doors just over a week ago on Michigan Avenue, and the new operators haven’t lost any time developing its taco-slinging replacement. Owner Matthew Buskard (also of neighboring Bobcat Bonnie’s) tells Eater his team has settled on the name — Hoffa’s Hideout — a nod to Detroit’s blue collar roots and the mysterious disappearance of labor leader Jimmy Hoffa.

Buskard struck a deal to take over the struggling bar and has pledged to keep the old-school character of Casey’s intact. The space isn’t undergoing a full renovation but will receive a deep-clean and some updates including more televisions and pool tables on the second floor. In addition to California-tacos, margaritas prepared with fresh juices, and craft beers, Buskard adds that the restaurant will feature a food challenge and a beer-of-the-month club with “giant glasses” for members.

Hoffa’s is still expected to partially debut in early November. The second floor updates will be unveiled at a later date.
