There are all kinds of sports bars out there, but a very unique one is opening in Portland, Oregon.  It’ll exclusively feature women’s sports, and it has a catchy name:  The Sports Bra.

The owner is a chef named Jenny Nguyen. She says she was inspired because 40% of all athletes are women, but 96% of the athletes on TV are men.

She believes this is the first sports bar to exclusively feature women’s sports, both on TV and in the décor.  They’re also working with female partners to get local food, as well as an all-women operated distillery to get spirits for cocktails.

The timing is perfect with the NCAA Final Four women’s matchups are happening as this is being written

The place already has some hype.  A Kickstarter raised over $100,000 . . . twice what they were asking for.  And during the campaign, Jenny made it clear:  This is not a sports bar for women, but a bar for women’s sports.  They’re welcoming EVERYONE . . . and the place is even kid-friendly, for better or worse.
