Chelsea / Flatiron, New York –
A true sports bar in every sense of the word, SNAP Sports Bar is a haven for hip young professionals, jockish college dudes, and sporty gals looking for a place where it’s all about the game.
From bar stools covered in basketball rubber to football-leather booths lined with fat white stitching and an NCAA bracket built into the floor, the bar takes its theme and makes a touchdown with it, providing enough massive flat-screen TVs to ensure no one misses a play.
When they’re not glued to the action, the chatty clusters of school friends and rowdy groups on a guys’ night out huddle around NYC-themed cocktails like Gothams Mash and cold brewskis to share house-made pickles and kettle chips.
Larger parties looking for more privacy can reserve the curtained-off back room with its own set of flat-screens to make sure fans don’t miss a minute of action.
Although the bar hosts fun activity nights like karaoke and trivia, and the weekends draw a decent crowd, it’s clear that the place really comes alive on game nights when the masses of face-painted fans burst into deafening cheers or downtrodden moans as the matches rage on before them.
Dripping with the love of the game, SNAP Sports Bar brings a healthy dose of originality and athleticism to the Chelsea bar scene.
Sports fans, older locals, college jocks, sporty girls, and young professionals, early 20s to 30s.
Flat-screen TVs tuned to sports. Karaoke Tuesdays 9pm, sports-themed trivia Wednesdays 9pm. Occasional playlist of pop music.
Full menu of bar food and pub fare including fish and chips, deviled scotch eggs, and grilled kielbasa. Happy Hour daily 5–8pm.
Sides $7+, entrées $7–$18. Beer $5+, wine $9+, cocktails $14+.
After-work casual: button-downs, jeans, t-shirts, jerseys.
Any night there’s a game on, or Tuesdays for karaoke.
Gym Sports Bar (167 8th Avenue), SNAP’s gay counterpart just up Eighth Avenue, has a similar devotion to good times and close games.
