Opened on May 8, 2011, coinciding with the then much-awaited bout between Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao and Shane Mosley, 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.
