Futpool Portland Nears Opening

img_6742It’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.

Here’s what we wrote about the soccer-themed play space (at 6913 SE Foster) in November.

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 IMG_6980match, 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.
