Another night out on Manhattan's Upper East Side

Pub Crawl NYC’s last outing on the Upper East Side was so much fun, we had to return sooner rather than later.  On a recent night out, we visited three spots: Sin Bin (located on First Avenue between 58th and 59th Streets), the Honky Tonk Tavern (located on First Avenue between 63rd and 64th Streets) and Tequileria Maya (located on First Avenue between 64th and 65th Streets).

Sin Bin: This no frills Irish/Sports bar was a good spot for the 2012 Euro Cup. Picking up where State of Grace (and before that, Venus Room) left off, Sin Bin's friendly staff make this bar a worthwhile visit.
Honky Tonk Tavern offers a Texas/Southwest U.S. theme of sorts. Bar in the front third of the space, with a dining area in the back 2/3. Decent tap beer selection, but they poured a Lagunitas IPA into a frosty mug! ! Yikes! The frosty mugs are, of course, for the Lone Star and Coors Light.
To finish the evening, Pub Crawl NYC went to Tequileria Maya, which is basically an extension of Richard Sandoval's restaurant, Maya. They took a neighboring nail salon and expanded Maya's existing small bar area into a larger bar area. Nice happy hour specials on both drink ($6 Margaritas) and food ($4 tacos).
