It says it right there on the sign hanging out front: Murph’s Bar is “a comfortable place to be.” The Irish pub has all the charm of a well-loved dive with the hint of something slightly more upscale—we’re talking PBR and Aperol Spritz, truffle ravioli and mozzarella sticks, exposed brick walls and taxidermied animal heads. You’ll find longtime Fishtown residents and 30-something transplants cozied up together at the copper penny bar, the Elvis Presley lamps casting a warm glow on their chef-made pasta and bottled beers. Stop by the ATM before you check out this study in cool contradictions—this old-school joint is cash-only.
