On a recent Thursday, the inside of Pour House looked like a construction site with sawdust on the floors and wallpaper ready to be applied. But by late July or early August, this bar and eatery at 19th and Q streets is set to open.
The food operations will be handled by Coast to Coast Sandwiches, a popular food truck that will expand its menu with barbecued meats and salads.
Look for one of the more novel bar programs in the area. Some of the booths will include tap handles for beer and whiskey, meaning customers can pour their own libations while a software system logs the amount served and the price.
The building is owned by restaurateur-chef Kurt Spataro and his wife, Kitty O'Neal of KFBK radio, with business partners including local nightclub maven Bob Simpson.
Coast to Coast will be working with a new smoker that'll cook up Texas-style brisket, tri-tip and pulled pork, while keeping many of its mainstay sandwiches from its truck on the menu. The kitchen will double as storage and food prep area for items to be used on the truck.
"It'll be helpful to have a home base," said Robert Ramos, co-owner of Coast to Coast. "This will be a marriage of two great concepts."
Plans include Sunday brunch and music from DJs and live bands.

Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "Report Abuse" link to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.

Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.
Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand.
Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.
Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.
Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.
