Bar Review: Murphy's Law

Normally I would not consider Tenleytown an ideal place to go for a drink. Not because of the location but because there are simply no places to go; therefore, it was a relief to see Murphy's Law move into the space previously occupied by Hungry Tiger. Finally, the student-heavy neighborhood has an alternative to the Dancing Crab, the local dive bar.

While the owners of Murphy's Law noticeably changed the interior of the former Persian restaurant, the outside still resembles a store front more than a bar. Hopefully this will not discourage patrons from enjoying a great new addition to the area. Inside, guests will enjoy sitting at the large wooden bar and watching the numerous TVs.

Being an Irish bar, Murphy's Law serves traditional Irish fare (shepherd's pie and fish and chips) and keeps Guinness and Harp readily available. If you are not a fan of the heavy Irish cuisine, they do have lighter menu options (this applies to the beer as well). The fish and chips were just as fish and chips should be: beer battered and served with plenty of tartar sauce. I will definitely be coming back just for this dish.

Murphy's Law is located at
