Murphy's Irish Pub & Restaurant was the first authentic Irish pub in Jakarta, Indonesia. Opening in May 2010 Murphy's have brought a taste of Ireland to Jakarta, and expecially Kemang. Murphy's offer great food, beer ( Draught Guinness and Kilkenny ) atmosphere, music and of course some legendary Irish "Craic". Murphy's were the first bar in Jakarta to offer the very popular Draught Kilkenny, imported all the way from Ireland and was first again to introduce Draught Guinness to Jakarta. Both imported from Dublin, Ireland creating a real authentic Irish experience. Murphy's was also first bar to have a self serving Guinness table - yes Pour your own Pint at Murphy's.

Good music vibe. I like this place because there isn't that many place where you can just sit and enjoy the music with your friends. It's nice to go in an area where expats hang out as girls and not having to worry drunk people annoying you (there will be drunk ones, yes. But it's not a red-light district kind... More

I returned to Jakarta (from Balikpapan) for a few days business. A part of the decision process for where to stay depends upon the good places to go at night and, Murphy's in Kemang helped me to decide to stay in Kemang, just a few meters from Murphy's.

This place could be the highlight of everyone's weekend but despite the location in Kemang (biggest ex-pat area) and lovely decor, well laid out the food and service was disappointing to say the least.

You would never know you are in Indonesia when at Murphy's - it's a nice escape and good fun if you are looking for some Irish stout and a good time with friends. Very casual.
