Jakarta Best Restaurant, Bar & Cafe Awards (BRBCA) 2014: Murphy's Irish Pub Review

Editors Choice Award: Best Saturday Night Live Music

Those of you living in or around Kemang would have been familiar with the distinctive facade of Murphy’s Irish Pub.  Located just across McDonald’s, the interiors resemble a typical Irish pub with a long bar on one side and plenty of seating areas where you can enjoy their scrumptious fish and chips or Sunday roast.

Murphy’s is a good example of the harmonious blend of cultures that Jakarta has become known for. Here, Kilkenny’s is proudly served alongside Bintang.  The signature Irish pub interior, for which a lot of efforts was invested, is enjoyed not only by the expats regulars, but also the local crowd.

On any given Saturday night, Murphy’s really comes to life as a melting pot of happy customers of all ages, professions, and colors.  The recipe?  All of the above plus a very popular acoustic band that plays not only the latest Top 40 and Indonesian songs, but also Irish folksongs.  And they play them amazingly well with the help of their fantastic violinist.

Guests would join the band for a song or two with no hesitation, and everyone becomes friends at the front area by the stage which usually transforms into the dance floor.  The camaraderie, which carries on sometimes well until past closing time when guests reluctantly agree to leave, is how Murphy’s earned this Editors’ Choice Award.
