Where We Watch says:
While it's a rookie in the West Village game, one look inside SNAP demonstrates that it knows what it's doing. SNAP stands for sports, nightlife and pastime, and it lacks none of the three. Quirky touches such as the football stitching in the leather benches, stools made from recycled basketballs, and a crowd shot from a 1950's Soldier Field game staring down at you from the ceiling lets you know you are in the bigs. A full kitchen and 16 LCD TV's ranging up to 70 inches compliment the 32 beers they serve. The signature cocktails and the beers run a little pricey, $14 and $6-$7 respectively, but the atmosphere demands a premium. Besides, game time specials allow even those on the tightest budgets to get saucy. Only time will tell what kind of crowd SNAP will bring in, but keep an eye on this feisty newcomer.
