Inspired by BBC's Peaky Blinders, the "Snug" is a staple to the history of Irish Pubs. Inside a small, screened-off room attached to the bar called the snug, guests would have a small window for bartenders to pass drinks through, so no one could see the patron order. They also had locks so that they couldn’t be opened from the outside, giving whoever was inside almost total privacy.
Available for reservations of 3 to 7 people. Request Reservation now or call (646) 837-6779
