Sneaky Pete’s is an Erie, PA icon, dating back over 100 years when it originally opened as a “Blind Pig” establishment, used for selling and drinking alcoholic beverages without a license, and then during Prohibition (1920-1933) when selling or buying alcohol was illegal. The “speakeasy” look and feel of Sneaky Pete’s therefore is authentic, and rooted in local history. Until recently, Sneaky Pete’s was owned and operated by Pete & Laura Ciacchini, who ran the establishment for 53 years and has one of the oldest liquor licenses in the county for this cocktail bar and lounge.
Darrell Knopfel, the new General Manager, brings his passion and experience as a chef to Sneaky Pete’s,  which now offers a refined dining experience usually found only in restaurants in large metropolitan areas. Darrell’s vision also comes with a motto: "Hey Erie, let's Charcut- Erie." The charcuterie boards offered are made from imported meats and cheeses from Italy, Spain and France. Look to our Pub Menu for other delicious foods handmade to order including crab cake appetizers or mouthwatering filet medallions with roasted red peppers and Gorgonzola on a buttered croissant.
