There are few notable things to recommend this Upper East Side sports bar: its proximity to the Queensboro Bridge and the number of flat-screens (seven) they manage to cram into such a small space. To be fair, they are nice TVs—high-def and with satellite—each tuned to a different sporting event. The yellow walls, lined with counters and stools, are dotted with framed sports photos, football scarves, and generic frat boy décor—our favorite of the numerous “vintage” tin signs is the “Beauty is in the eye of the beerholder.” The back of the bar holds two video-game machines (Big Buck Safari!) and pennants for—shock of all shocks!—the Patriots and the Red Sox. Perhaps being a Red Sox fan is the titular Sin? The front of the bar is open to the street, where one can enjoy the First Avenue breeze while enjoying any number of the bar’s generic draught and bottle beers. Bonus: Free Wi-Fi!
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
