Inside the bright-red façade of Murphy’s, wood-paneled walls and antique lanterns give off a cozy ski-lodge vibe—until framed photos of martyred Kennedys and the owner’s Gaelic family remind one that this is a traditional Irish pub. An exceptionally long wooden bar fills most of the narrow space, providing plenty of seating, while six flat-screens, plus a huge projection screen at the end of the bar, take care of the football hooligans on hand. When there isn’t a big game on, incongruous top-40 pop songs provide a soundtrack for the diners in the candlelit back restaurant area and for the locals drinking up front.
