That sounds lovely, doesn't it? Who doesn't want a nice quiet place to relax and enjoy their favorite libation far from the madding crowd? Traditionally a snug would be a small, private room with a frosted glass external window where people could drink without being seen, frequently it was reserved for the wealthy, and the beer was a higher price. It was also used by anyone who wished to enjoy a drink without being seen, for example ladies would imbibe in the snug when it was unseemly for them to be seen drinking in public. The snug also offered a private haven for the local police officers or priests who didn't wish to be seen drinking. At times a snug would also be a discreet place for a romantic tryst, where the lovers could have privacy. There are very few traditional snugs left in the public houses of Ireland and Britain, but this long-standing tradition won't die, thanks to The Celtic Ranch and our own Terry Kast.
