The formal launch ceremony of Snaps, to be led by Sofitel’s General Manager Mr. Goran Aleks, will coincide with the much-awaited bout between Manny Pacman Pacquiao and Sugar Shane Mosely on May 8, 2011.
Needless to say, the Pacman’s image is one of the biggest in the bar. Located by the billiard table, he shares the spot with another Filipino great, Efren Bata Reyes. Two other Filipinos are featured in Snaps’ murals: top bowler, Paeng Nepumuceno and football star, James Younghusband.
Other sports idols include NBA players Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and Michael Jordan; controversial golf star Tiger Woods; boxing legends Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson, swimming’s 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. Surely, these images will spark even more lively debates among sports aficionados and fans.
GetCre8ive General Manager Ms. Snow Chua said, “We are very happy to support Sofitel in making Snaps sports bar a tribute to the world’s greatest athletes. Especially, since from the start, they were adamant to include our very own Manny Pacquiao, Paeng Nepomuceno, Efren “Bata” Reyes and James Younghusband.”
“GetCre8ive has been very supportive in every way possible of this project. We are very pleased with their service,” said Sofitel Philippine Plaza Vice President Hiroshi Endo.
The exclusive invitees of Snaps’ launch event will be treated to Sofitel’s famous breakfast. What celebration comes after Pacman’s most anticipated win remains a secret!
Snaps Sports Bar is located at the Lobby Level, Sofitel Philippine Plaza, CCP Complex, Roxas Boulevard, Pasay City, Philippines.
