Sports Bar in Manila Celebrates First Anniversary

Snaps, the hippest sports bar in Manila, is celebrating its first anniversary!

Online PR News – 09-May-2012 – Pasay City, Philippines – Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila, a unique 5 star luxury hotel in Manila, situated at the heart of Pasay City, near the Cultural Center of the Philippines and close to the famous Mall of Asia, celebrates the first year anniversary of one of its sophisticated F&B outlets, Snaps Sports Bar.

A year ago, Sofitel Manila’s desire to open a sports bar that will cater to every Filipino sports enthusiast became a reality. And with that simple goal in mind, the concept for Snaps came to life. Snaps is truly the best representation of Filipino world-class excellence in sports. As proof, immortalized on its walls are murals of two of the greatest Filipino sportsmen: boxing champion Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao and billiards legend Efren ‘Bata’ Reyes, along with two other famous Filipino athletes; international Filipino champion bowler Paeng Nepumuceno and football star of the now famous Azkals, James Younghusband. Aside from these renowned Filipino sports legends, other sports icons featured include NBA players Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and Michael Jordan; controversial golf star Tiger Woods; boxing legends Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson, swimmer Michael Phelps, China’s table tennis wonder Ma Lin; tennis superstars Roger Federer and Maria Sharapova; and billiard masters Mark Shelby, Ali Carter, Neil Robertson and Stephen Hendry.

Today, as Snaps Sports bar turns one, come and have a cold one as you relax and unwind. Giant LCD screens show the hottest sporting events via live telecast. This week, catch the following sporting events; Barclays Premier League - Liverpool vs Chelsea on May 9 and Formula 1 Gran Premio de España Santander 2012 - Main Race on May 13.

For those so inclined, a pool table and foosball machine are also available. Add hip music, your favorite drink in hand and gourmet comfort food to the mix, and you’re all set to let the good times roll. A free pint of Hoegaarden beer is given to guests for every seven bottles consumed, and a cool Snaps Sports Bar T-shirt is given for a single receipt of Php2,999. This exclusive Snaps first birthday treat is valid until June 30, 2012.
