Antigua, Guatemala has a watering hole sort of like the one on the TV show Cheers. You know, the place where everyone knows your name?

It's called The Snug Bar.

The Snug is an authentic Irish bar owned by an Irishman. Located at 6th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues it's in a tiny closet of a space with an Irish clover hanging outside.


You'll never fail to have a good time here. There's a wonderful mix of expats, Guatemalan locals and tourists in a friendly atmosphere.

Cozy, friendly atmosphere

With less than 20 seats, a bar and two tables, this gathering place is great for conversation. You can always meet someone new and interesting, whether you are keen on an intimate conversation with a Guatemalan local or a raucous time with some Aussies.

All of the bar tenders make an effort to learn your name and to give attentive service. This vivacious woman spoke excellent English and lived in Spain for several years.


The Snug is an unpretentious, easy-going gathering spot worth visiting.

They serve various local and imported beers along with a selection of distilled alcohols.

Cobblestone streets in Antigua are the norm and make for a creative atmosphere in the whole city.

Here you see the sign for Snug's hours - 7 days a week, Noon to 10pm.

The Bull Shit Corner could describe the whole of Snug since it is so tiny. Why limit story telling to just one corner?

Next time you are in Antigua, make it a point to stop by The Snug.

Welcoming and friendly, you're sure to have a great time.

All of our books lead to adventure. Don't miss out on yours!
