In East Harlem, better known in nightlife circles for its great merengue and salsa scenes, a honky-tonk bar is somewhat out of place. Still, dive-bar impresario Tom McNeil (of the Patriot Saloon and the dearly departed Yogi’s) opened this two-room saloon in fall 2008, and the local crowd has embraced his formula: Johnny Cash tunes, baskets of peanuts, and cleavage-baring bartenders who pour $6.50 pitchers of Pabst and stiff Wild Turkey shots.
