With its cheesy faux-log sign over the entrance and a few Wild West artifacts like a toboggan sled and wooden skis hanging on the burgundy wall inside, it's easy to mistake Kabin for the raucous log-cabin theme bars found in Murray Hill. But during the week this dimly lit quasi-dive attracts a laid-back 30-something neighborhood set with its rotating happy hour specials and its eclectic bottled beers such as Delirium Tremens, a Belgian ale that has nearly twice the alcohol content as your average brew. Stools line the opposite wall and the copper-topped bar: There is a table for billiards in the back, where off to the side in a separate, incongruous weekends-only lounge, younger, trendier college-age patrons plant themselves on posh velvet antique couches and leather stools to celebrate their birthdays.Extra
