This Pub has a beer collection of about 13 beertaps all from small breweries, and some bottles. One beer 0,5l is about 1,30€ (5lt), the food which was served really fast was also good and cheap. So good beer, good prices, good service and nice location!
Compared to the other Šnekutis this one is more conveniently located and in a lively part of town. Similar quality/quantity as far as tap selection is concerned, I even found the bottle selection (beer fridge next to the bar) of this Old Town location to be a little more extensive than the Užupis location. Food is typical Lithuanian pub food, pretty similar to the Užupis location. So far so good, however this Old Town location lacks the atmosphere of the Užupis location. Of course it is Lithuanian food and Lithuanian beer and people speak Lithuanian, but other than that and this could be a city pub anywhere on the planet. We went a few times to both locations and even the crowd is totally different, Užupis has a more varied and friendly crowd while the Old Town had a younger more “hip” crowd (by Lithuanian standard). Still this Old Town location is a mandatory stop, but
A wonderful pub just outside old town Vilnius in an old rundown block. Owner Aurimas stands in the bar, like a modern beer messiah dressed in a white robe with a long beard, while his wife takes care of the kitchen. Both food (zeppelin) and beer was of high quality and I really enjoyed the rustic layout of the place. My favorite in Vilnius.
Yup - totally awesome! Didn’t get to spend nearly as much time here as I might have liked, but it was well worth the trip nonetheless. Very close to the bus station which is nice as well. Lots of farmhouse ales on offer wi a fridge full of stuff for takeaway as well. Not a whole lot of English, but pointing will get you what you need. Mustachioed owner was in good spirits the night we were in and was willing to pose for our touristy shots. Sort of a low din when we were in lending it a nice cozy vibe. Definitely a must see if you’re here
Of the two very best beer places in Vilnius this is one of them and there are two of it’s kind (Old Town and in the Užopio area). The owner works at the Old Town bar. He speaks no English (but Russian) but communication is so very down to earth with him. The daughter speaks very good English. Good selection on tap of very tasty unfiltered beers from small breweries around Lithuania. Very good service. Tasty beer snacks (breads sticks, cheese, corn etc.) and tasty food dishes (sausages, pig meat, soups, etc). I went there every day of my 4 days in Vilnius, one day even twice :-) Indeed a MUST when in Vilnius.
Atmosphere-wise, there isn’t much happening here, unless Valentas is behind the bar and is making strange faces. He is quite the character. The beer list is nearly all high quality Lithuanian Gyvas Alus (real beer, unpasteurized, unfiltered, naturally carbonated), so this place is an absolute must when in Vilnius. The only other must in town is the other Snekutis in the Uzupis district. That one has it all; amazingly homey and quirky atmosphere PLUS a similar beer list.
The owner with his fantastic grey beard is worth the walk himself. The variety is not huge, but you find some beers that are hard (or even possible) to find anywhere else in Vilnius. Great homemade borsjtj is worth mentioning as well.
Établissement visité le samedi 3 mars vers 18h. Ambiance: Bar de quartier sans grande personalité. La musique était trop forte lors de mon passage. Service: On doit se rendre au bar pour se faire servir. Le tout est sympathique et on finit par se débrouiller pour se faire comprendre. Sélection: 8 fűts et une dizaine de bouteille qu’on peut choisir dans un frigo. Nourriture: Une sélection de bouchées lithuaniennes typique de bar. (178e rating d’établissement)
