Snobar (sometimes spelled Snowbar) is a popular club in Ramallah.

In 2010 the New York Times described Snobar as "the hottest spot in Ramallah." The Thursday night dance party with a live band is especially popular, drawing hundreds of young people who dance under flashing red, yellow and blue disco lights.

The club, located on a hillside a few minutes form the city center, features a restaurant, a swimming pool and outdoor space picnics under the pine trees from which the club takes its name, snobar is Arabic for "pine." On the Thursday disco nights, the club builds huge bonfires and patrons sit under the pines cooled by the breeze as they take in the sweeping views of the Ramallah skyline by night.

Like hot clubs everywhere, Snobar has bouncers, in this case posted to enforce a "couples only" policy, keeping out single men who might, the owners fear, get rowdy.

By daylight, the Club caters to upscale families who come to swim and dine under the pine trees.
