CANTON, OHIO (May 30, 2023)Hall of Fame Village today announces that it will add Perfect Pour a renowned veteran-owned Akron establishment specializing in cocktails, bourbon and burgers to its Fan Engagement Zone retail venue at its Canton, Ohio campus. Perfect Pour will introduce an enticing bourbon bar with small plates, specialty burgers, accompanied by a dedicated cigar room.

Perfect Pour prides itself in offering a friendly and unpretentious environment with a knowledgeable and attentive staff. Specializing in bourbon, whiskey, and martinis, this new venue is slated to open at 2101 Hall of Fame Way, Suite 3B, adjacent to yet another local brand, the upcoming new Heggy’s Nut Shop location.

"We are honored to bring our expertise in bourbon and craft beverages to Hall of Fame Village's Fan Engagement Zone," remarked Terrence Shavers Sr., Founder of Perfect Pour Akron, along with his partners Robert Putnam and Kameron Alexander who echoed his comments. "Our goal is to create a warm and inviting space where visitors can indulge in exceptional cocktails, savor the richness of bourbon, and enjoy a fine cigar together. We look forward to serving the community and delivering an unforgettable experience."

"The addition of Perfect Pour adds another twist to the type of spaces we’re creating to dine, unwind, and celebrate at The Village. Their commitment to excellence and passion for creating memorable experiences aligns perfectly with our vision of providing our guests with a unique and vibrant atmosphere with the Fan Engagement Zone,” said Carol Smith HOFV SVP of Special Projects.

The Hall of Fame Village Fan Engagement Zone offers rooftop views of Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium and is an active hub for fans to have fun, dine, and socialize. Fan Engagement Zone previously celebrated openings of the sports-themed Build-A-Bear, Visit Canton Welcome Center, and Don Shula’s American Kitchen, and will hold a ribbon cutting to officially open Brew Kettle with Topgolf Swing Suite later this week.
