It’s coming. And quicker than you think.
The coolers have beer, the table-tops are ready for play, and new cable hook-ups promise televised soccer at every corner of the building. Love soccer or not, it’ll be the first of its kind in the neighborhood, and probably Portland for that matter: soccer (or futsal) fused with pool on 20-by-10-foot tables.
Think gigantic pool table with your foot as the cue stick, soccer balls as the pool balls. Soccer not your thing? Now imagine having a beer, catching a Timbers or Real Madrid match, and watching the evening unfold on Foster from behind the window-front. Perhaps you’ll become a fan soon enough.
The owner is eyeing a soft opening as soon as this weekend, possibly next. Either way, there’s soon to be one less vacant storefront on Foster; a new space for recreation; another place to grab a beer; a new venue for parties; a place to watch soccer. Oh, and they already have their own shirts.
Welcome to Foster, Futpool Portland.
