A few years back, some friends and I began to talk about our dreams and aspirations, which lead to our dream of Emporium Sports Bar. We envisioned an atmosphere where all would feel welcomed and ready for a good time. We started talking about how it would be really awesome to theme a bar after Dazed and Confused, the movie which took place back in the 70’s. In the movie, Emporium, was the name of a pool hall and local hot spot where everyone congregated. We wanted a place like that in Fort Collins to call our own.
From there, an opportunity arose that would make this dream a reality. Brian Noel, Roger Martin, and myself became partners in this journey. We each had something special to bring to the table, which created a place for locals to call their home bar. Without each partners input, Emporium would not be what it is today. As a partnership, we brought together ideas to create the perfect 70’s vibe and décor for an epic pool hall.
