  • Neighborhood: Brookline Village

Mashed potatoes and Irish soda bread make this one of the cozier nooks in Brookline Village. Of late Murphy's has also become home to a burgeoning reggae/dub/world-music scene that's spawned a vigorous Sun-night series, Live and Direct, as well as the club's own record label, Pub Records. Live music begins at 10 pm every night. Sunday brunch served. Cash only. No cover.
Insider's Tip: The homemade brown bread is delightfully dense and nutty.
