Party Earth SNAP Sports Bar Review

The Scene

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.

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.

Tip from Lucas:

Any place with a flat-screen and ESPN can call itself a sports bar – it’s the little things at SNAP that make it amazing. Check out the trophy collection, the 18th-century sports illustrations, and the fan faces on the ceiling cheering you on. Too cool.

Oh Snap!
Michael F. Mar 1, 2013
Sometimes when you walk into a bar, you are transported to another world, transposed from the average bar experience to a divergent environment. SNAP is one of those bars, and it take you to Sports World. (Yes, sports world is real!) As you walk in through the foyer and enter the bar lavished with sports memorabilia, there is a dapper feeling, old school, true sports bar feeling that is comforting. A diverse crowd welcomes you, from afterwork suit and ties, to students, to true sports fans and just groups of friends enjoying a night, and their is a lively sense of enjoyment in the air, regardless of the outcomes of the games being played on the 16 giant televisions lining the landscape. Fun bartenders, reasonably priced drinks, and some of the best fries you will ever taste at a bar. The staff is friendly, and the bartenders are fun, but this place can get packed and extremely busy, so it might require patience at certain nights. The owner is usually circling around making sure everyone is having a good time and is satisfied, and very friendly and easy going. Try and make friends with him, as he treats regulars really well and likes to hook you up with drinks and food on the house. Overall this is a great place to go grab a beer with some friends and watch the game, well multiple games and multiple sports.

If sports bars were pieces of art, then SNAP appears to have been crafted by some sort of jock Hieronymous Bosch. There is sports dripping out of every pore of this bar and restaurant, from the March Madness bracket in the floor (yeah) to the various sporting equipment in the wallpaper art (YEAH) to the sexy baseball uniforms worn by the waitresses (THE FORTY, THE THIRTY). On top of that, the delicious drinks, tasty food, and raucous crowd add a real sense of the excitement that makes a night watching a great game the thing to build your week around. Do you love sports? Do you have an ESPN tattoo? Get over here, dude.
