If you want a glimpse of the Lithuania most foreigners never see, seek ye this homely bar/eatery off the beaten path in Uzupis. Aurimas, the crazy owner, eats and unwinds here each night in his straw hat and bottlecap-laden vest and is always ready for a boozy photo opportunity. His heady home-brew, called "live beer" locally, is an unfiltered, unpasteurized, non EU approved murky swill that comes in five delicious varieties for an unbeatable 3 LT per half-litre! You may not understand the traditional Lithuanian menu, but the food is dirt-cheap and comes in large portions best-shared, featuring pig parts (ears and feet) and fried pea-pods (beer-snacktastic!). Visitors should be careful not to be too much of an overt foreigner here - the national character of the place and cheap food and drink can sometimes attract an unsavory crowd. Still, for anyone seeking a memorable adventure, Snekutis is a must.

Great that you still have this pub. Your website is really updated...
Ignor the last location , Im definately from England
thank you. I will by flying out to Vilnius on monday. I will take my lithuanian friend there who does not know of this wonderful place.
This is the best place ever. We often meet with firends here.
To Adam: Snekutis is closed on Sundays :-(
Great place but throughout 2008 summer and winter i visited Snektas and it was closed each time. What has happened to this wonderful place?
the best beer, the best dumpling for 5 lit, delicious food.
It's worth to go to Vilnius only to visit Snekutis :)
Finally, beer that tastes good! Everywhere else in Vilnius I could only have tasteless and very light beer (dark beer has at least some taste, even if it feels virtually with no alcohol). At Snekutis instead you can have the real thing... so return to the Old Town on foot :) The place has lot of character too.
Thanks for the info, Vidma. Glad to see there's now a website - thanks for letting us know and update our site. We love Snekutis!

Snekutis is arguably Vilnius' best kept secret. The beer is delicious and the owner filled us up a two-liter jug to take with us for only 11 litas! He is hilarious and there are pictures of him on the wall shaking hands with the last three Lithuanian presidents. They play funny Lithuanian country music also: we heard weird versions of "Home on the Range" and CCR's "Have You Ever Seen the Rain"...in Lithuanian. Definitely recommend this place for anyone sick of the loungy spots in the centre and up for an interesting time...
