Great Irish pub in the Woodly Park neighborhood of DC. Went here to grab a late nite pint w/ friends, and wound up making a few more! The people were very chill, and half the bar was all talking to one another which was very fun and different. Bartender was attentive and friendly, and (of course) also authentically Irish! They had some live music, which although a little loud as to make conversation strained, was VERY good! They played all kinds of classics and contemporary music, but changed it to make it sound like an Irish folk song! pretty cool. Manhattan clam chowder was delish as well. So, go to Murphys for the food, for the music, or for the pint and politics. It's a good time.
