Ireland’s pub culture is often imitated, but rarely duplicated and while Pattaya is not short on spots to grab a pint of Guinness, it can be somewhat difficult to pick a pub that has not only fantastic offerings at the bar but also delicious offerings from the kitchen.
Breaking the mold of other Irish pubs, Murphy’s Bar & Restaurant on Soi Khao Noi in East Pattaya (DARKSIDE) is refreshingly free of too much stained oak, horse brasses and other “ye olde” trappings, in fact quite the opposite as the design is modern and light.
There is something about Murphy’s that makes it a very unique nightlife experience- centered around the casual and friendly atmosphere, hearty food and drink, and a bit of Irish hospitality and tradition.
Haute cuisine it isn’t …. and it has no pretensions to be so. By the same token, the term “pub grub” doesn’t do it justice … it’s a sizeable step up from that.
Murphy’s offers a menu that caters for many tastes. It is easy to find something to appeal, it’s a great place for brunch on a weekend and evening dining.
Sunday’s and the kitchen put out a full roast, with a selection of meats including slabs of hand-carved beef, creamy mash and Yorkshire puddings. But if you’re there to unwind, then drinks range from the usual bottled Heineken, Chang and San Miguel Light beers, to popular draughts, wines, spirits, cocktails, prosecco and champagne, it’s perfectly stocked for a great night out!
Live music and televised sporting events are also an essential part of Murphy’s; however, the premises have an area set aside for dining but it is possible to eat anywhere so if solo customers wanted to park themselves in front of the TV to watch some sport while eating a good meal, they will feel very comfortable. That said, Murphy’s does not describe itself as a sports bar, but I think it could.
This neighborhood Irish Pub offers a unique, authentic experience that can be hard to find in a world that is saturated with chain restaurants.
Murphy’s is a centre for socialization a pub that offer eats, drinks, entertainment and its own vocabulary!
St. Patrick’s Day
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Even if you do not have Irish roots, the odds are that you will find yourself reveling on March 17th.
For us, St. Patrick’s Day is about celebrating everything great about Ireland, our hospitality, our inclusivity and our products. In Ireland, it’s much more of a family and friends affair,” explained Murphy, who noted that his favorite item on the menu is the Irish Coffee. As for what else is coming up for the acclaimed pub: “Lots…2021 is going to be a busy year for us.”
