I'm in a Snafu State of Mind!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – Some folks like to get away
Take a holiday to a different bar
Hop a train all the way downtown
Or drive in their car
But I'm taking a subway
On the lexington ave line
I'm in a snafu state of mind
I've seen all the other bars
with their famous stars..and their snobby scene
Been drunk on the west side...and tavern on the green
But I know what I'm needing
And I don't want to waste more time
I'm in a snafu state of mind
It is so easy..snaffin day by day
Drinkin beer... while enjoying some booze
And I don't need a little Snafu break
At Irish Times, The House of Brews
But it comes down to reality
The popcorn's free, and its worth the ride
Don't care if it's happy hour up on Riverside
I don't need a reason
Left those bars behind
I'm in a snafu state of mind
I'm just taking a subway, on the Lexington Ave Line
'Cause I'm in a.......... SNAFU state of mind
Dingy with OK service – 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.
Upstairs the lounge is cozier.but the sofas and chairs don't 'feel' too clean either.
Also, a few guys were smoking by the restroom...seriously...is smoking allowed??
Editorial Review by Marcella Veneziale – The neighborhood near Grand Central boasts lots of overpriced bars and lounges, but this bar offers reasonably-priced, standard fare.
I love Snafu more!!!!! – In Boston..Cheers may be where everybody knows your name..but here in New York..my Cheers goes by a
different name..Snafu. No matter what time of day, or what mood you're in..Snafu has something for everyone..
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
during the day, then you will have the honor of meeting Dave, the man of many hats. (pun intended)
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!....
in more ways than one!
And for the ladies....you won't find Johnny Cash on the digital jukebox but you can meet the real man in black..Arun
A game of pool and free popcorn always go well with a cold beer..but for those of you with a sweet tooth,
you'll have to settle for all the eye candy behind the bar.
My cool meter registered a full 5 bars in there. So if you're ever in the area after work, stop by, throw back
a few cold ones, and chances are you'll be sitting next to me.
When visiting this wonderful midtown watering hole, remember this simple fact and you're sure to be a star...
You can't spell SNAFU without F-U-N
I love snafu – 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.
Great After Work Spot!!!! – 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...
disgusting! – 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!!

Snafu is for loosers – 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.
pretty standard – 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.
