Very Nice Bar & Lounge 10/30/2009

Dingy with OK service 9/28/2007

Dark, and feels unclean.Had bottled beer...hard to mess that up. Server girls attractive but not hot...but they do dress on the skimpy side, so maybe that is the same as 'hot'. Anyway, they have a pool table and Golden Tee live and some other game but they are placed right by the bathroom door...ugh.\r \r Upstairs the lounge is cozier.but the sofas and chairs don't 'feel' too clean either.\r \r Also, a few guys were smoking by the smoking allowed?? Pros: Convenient location Cons: Service and Attentiveness...lackluster surroundings more

I love Snafu more!!!!! 7/13/2007

In Boston..Cheers may be where everybody knows your name..but here in New Cheers goes by a\r different name..Snafu. No matter what time of day, or what mood you're in..Snafu has something for everyone..\r it truly is a jack of all trades bar..but in this case...ill call it a Dave of all trades. If you're there \r during the day, then you will have the honor of meeting Dave, the man of many hats. (pun intended)\r Catch a game on one of the many flat screen tv's and ponder the mysteries of life over a few beers, and Dave will leave you wanting more of his heroic tales. One potential downside is the male to female ratio. It can sometimes be a sausage fest in there. But in that case, you can just sit back and enjoy the scantily clad bartenders and waitresses. One bartender in particular..can really heat things up!....\r in more ways than one! \r And for the won't find Johnny Cash on the digital jukebox but you can meet the real man in black..Arun\r \r A game of pool and free popcorn always go well with a cold beer..but for those of you with a sweet tooth,\r you'll have to settle for all the eye candy behind the bar.\r \r My cool meter registered a full 5 bars in there. So if you're ever in the area after work, stop by, throw back\r a few cold ones, and chances are you'll be sitting next to me.\r When visiting this wonderful midtown watering hole, remember this simple fact and you're sure to be a star...\r You can't spell SNAFU without F-U-N Pros: Everything Cons: I can't live there more

I love snafu 6/26/2007

First off who ever made that last comment about snafu... u are a hater!!! # 1 your profile or web name ""areputablesource"" is lame. U are a probally a nobody and trying to hate on one of the only good bars in midtown. Pros: The staff is friendly and down to earth andthe drinks are reasonably priced Cons: no food, yet you can bring in whatever you want or order delivery more

Great After Work Spot!!!! 2/12/2007

Great place for happy hour during the week, best nights are Wed, Thurs and Friday... free popcorn and the drinks are pretty cheap.... Friendly staff... Pros: Friendly Staff, local hang out Cons: n/a more

disgusting! 2/9/2007

I was told that Snafu had hot bartenders and cheap drinks by a dude I work with. I was horrified to see what this guy thought of as ""hot"" and ""cheap."" Ok, the drinks aren't expensive, but they are watered down and just plain bad! Maybe he said cheap meaning they gyp you out of liquor. As for the girls behind the bar, they are not at all cute.... and not at all attentive. I went on a Sat. night and there were maybe 8 people in the bar in total, and the bartenders were both talking to a few guys at the end of the bar and did not even seem to notice me and my buddy for about 15 minutes! Then I was told they were out of Guinness, so instead I ordered a Bass which was half full of head. The DJ was playing out-of-place techno music to make matters worse. Also, the bathroom was freaking nasty. DO NOT go to Snafu if you're looking for a good time!! Cons: bad music, bad service, bad smell! more

Snafu is for loosers 4/29/2006

Snafu is full of B&T's who think they belong in the city. The music is terrible and the people are obnoxious. A total sausage fest, this is an eye-sore for the area. more

pretty standard 4/25/2005

so this place is better than the other after work bars in the area (fubar, connolly's), but it's still kinda cruddy. the drinks are reasonably priced, but the crowd is a fairly bland banker group, and the music blows. worst of all, if you try to select better tunes from the jukebox, they get played for 20 seconsd, then get skipped. the best thing that this place has good going for it is the free popcorn. good for an after work drink, but not much else. Pros: reasonably priced, free popcorn Cons: bad music, jukebox steals your $ more

Fun Spot! 2/21/2005

This bar has something for everyone. There's a lounge area upstairs for the couples, pool tables downstairs, and of course tons of atractive men and women at the main bar for the singles. The bartenders are attractive and attentive-even when it gets packed. Gotta love the fact that you can choose your own tunes in the juke box, but on weekends there's a great dj as well. Great drinks, fun decor, no complaints! Pros: Trendy, Attractive Crowd, Great drinks more

Cool Place 7/18/2003

If you want to take a look at a couple of hot female bartenders, watch a game on TV, or dance on the bar like you're in a scene from the movie Coyote Ugly, then this is the bar for you. The service is good and the patrons (corporate types) have more fun on the bar than next to it. There's a small lounge area upstairs, if you want to suggle with that special someone, or play a game of pool downstairs. You can dance wherever you like, specially when the Boss clears the bar just for you. Pros: inexpensive, decent parking Cons: No Smoking, No Smoking, No Smoking more

Love This Place 4/10/2003

I Love This Place! I always stay at the Radisson hotel around the corner and Snafu is my new little hang-out. Great scene! Hot women! Pros: Great crowd, Posh Cons: Crowded, Price more

Get loose! 1/27/2003

What I thought was another nice lounge turned into a big party and I have picture to prove it. Didn't think my Wednesday night would would be spent watching dozens of people dancing on the bar. A good mix of 80s and new hip hop. Crowd thinned out at about 10 making it easier for the party people to move around. Great after-work fun. Pros: Good music, Fun clientelle more

What a nice change to midtown 1/18/2003

It has finally arrived! A bar that appeals to all! The bar area is great to hang around, drink and and get a groove on. If you just want to relax and talk, you can head over to the upper level, where you'll find a nice little fireplace surrounded by very inviting lounges. If you feel like a game of pool, just head all the way downstairs for a little fun. Definitely worth checking out!! Pros: Great Atmosphere, Great service more

Snafuriffic! 12/17/2002

Excellent ambience with attractive bartender and scintallating jukebox. The popcorn is a nice relaxed touch to the mellow, post-work feel of this little midtown nugget. A fantastic happy hour location which seems to bring out a refined and upscale clientele - in fact I saw George Clooney and Eyal Hahn sipping martinis in the upper room the other night. The video games downstairs add an exciting feel to this midtown gem. Pros: Jukebox, Pool table more

Snafu- get some 11/30/2002

A great place for fun, friends, and conversation. Dancing by the end of the night completes the experience. Pool, launge, bar and video games. Can't lose. more
