BEST HH AND LATE NIGHT! In Denver! – AWESOME LATE NIGHT, HAPPY HR (HAPPYNESS IN GENERAL), AND ALL THE TIME GREAT COMPANY!!! I am dissapointed though that the patio does not alow dogs anymore! I brought my 2 malamutes to the snug a few days ago and they (and I and our waitress) were VERY upset with the HI's decision to reject our furry guests. The servers seemed sorry as well! The only quam I have with the service is the bartender......Erin?? Eric??? something of the sort... very rude. But thanks for the great time!!! Thanks!!!
Great Live Music and Service – I stumbled across the Irish Snug by mistake one Thursday evening. This bar is like no other in Denver. The first floor is a tastefully done traditional Irish style pub. I got a drink at the bar by myself, I was instantly made to feel welcome by the bartender. I had dinner and the food came out quick and the Salmon was very fresh and tasty. While sitting at the bar the bartender asked if I had seen downstairs? There is more I asked. The bartender explained that they had a newly added a addition to the Pub. Under the Snug. I went down. Wow!! The place was beautiful. Irish pictures on the walls, exposed brick, a lounge and another beautiful bar. There was a band playing that was amazing. I usually go downtown to listen to live music and pay to get in. Here however, I paid nothing and listened to one of the best bands I have heard in a while. The Irish Snug was a amazing find. I try to go in weekly to listen to music and meet people. The Irish Snug is one of my favorite spots in Denver.
Someone needs to make a change over there.... – I live less than one block away from The Snug and I would consider myself a local at this point. The beers are delicious and the new downstairs has been renovated with plasma TVs on the wall. There are also some pool tables that you have to PAY for, which I think is pretty weak. I have a large network of friends that go to the Snug for convenience and to sit outside near home and not have to drive or park. Everyone will tell you that the quality of service is very inconsistent and they most often have to wait upwards of 10-15 minutes to even get a beer let alone food. The Irish Snug's food is pretty cheap pub food, but they do have some healthy dishes that I can eat on a regular basis. The service is quite rediculous. I hate to say it because the place has so much potential. I don't know if I would recommend anyone to make a special trip. If you live on the block or maybe 2 blocks, then go for it, but other than that..... wait until they get things together. As a local I have been in several arguments with the grouchy bartenders there who pour weak drinks. I will not tolerate weak drinks when you are paying and when you call them out on it, they ignore you all night. Don't bother with this place.
Terrible, terrible service! – I recently was in the neighborhood and decided to have bruch here on Saturday morning. The sign said to seat yourself which I did. I sat there for almost 15 minutes and finally flagged down a server. I know the bartender saw me when I came in, but no one ever came over. I always try to cut servers some slack since I was a waitress back in the day, but this was nuts, the restaurant was completely empty except for me and one other table which had 2 people at it. The gentleman at the only other table at one point had to go in search of the server as well to get refills on their drinks.
Once I finally placed my order the food took forever to come to my table, again WHY? The place was empty. The food tasted good once I received it and they did have a $3.00 Mimosa Bruch special which was a great price for how large of a drink it was, but the service was so terrible I will never return. Don't waste one second of your precious time here.
TERRIBLE Service and Mediocre Food – It is a fairly nice space with a good happy hour, and I really wanted to like this place, but the bartenders make it impossible. The service I have received there on both of my visits was TERRIBLE! Not only are the bartenders incompetent, they have an attitude, too! Also, the food I have had here has been barely passible. I have given it two chances and I won't go back. There are plenty of places in Denver that are nicer, and have an equal or better happy hour, without the poor service or bad attitudes.
The irish embassy on Colfax! – You could describe the 'Snug' in one word BRILLIANT! The food is great and the drinks are better ($3 Irish Car Bombs on Thursdays! hell yeah!). Great happy hour too! I love hanging out on the patio. The place rocks on the weekends, Friday and Saturday are usually packed, I'm sure I'll see you there!
Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors – A good selection of "jar" (Irish for drinks) helps bring on the "craic" (good times) in this cozy, classy bar.
