Pour Sports Pub will become the newest restaurant to open in Greer, tentatively scheduled for April 26. The restaurant is located at 304 Trade Street, formerly Ember.

Vaughn Bragg, owner, has lived and worked in Pennsylvania most of his life until relocating to Greer. He worked for Hershey’s 20 years in the town’s namesake.

Bragg said the decision to open a sports pub in Greer was as simple, “As me walking through town and not seeing anything like it.” That is the same reason the Philly cheese steak is his signature menu item.

There will be six TVs – a 70-inch behind the long bar with two of 55-inches beside it, and three 55-inch TVs in the back. Bragg said he anticipates opening everyday except Monday and Tuesday.

Bragg has been upfitting the building the past two weeks, assembling furniture and preparing to hire a 10-person staff.

The décor will antique. “I like older sports pictures and prints. Auto racing will also be a part of it, especially the dragsters of the past. Antiques bring everybody together,” Bragg said.

There was no mystery in the name, Bragg said. “”My landlord suggested it.”

Bragg said he would bring some of the menu items that are found in sports bars in the northeast. “We will have chicken cheese steak and other sandwiches. We have a full kitchen so we’ll be able to handle almost anything.”

There’s a reason Bragg has started his own business. “I’m tired of working for everyone else. I’m young and I want to do this now.”
