Murphy’s Law was formerly located across the street, where Qdoba is presently located, from 1986 until 1992. Marquette purchased the building and relocated Murphy’s Law to where “The Gym Bar” was located before the move to 16th street. In 1996 Murphy’s Law was renamed to Murphy’s Irish Pub where it exists today. Known for its 21st B-day Club, the famous “Karaoke Wed.” and the Mug Club, Murphy’s has served Millions of happy students and Alumni for many years.
Today, Murphy’s is the “party” bar on Marquette University’s campus, providing MU students with nightly specials and featured DJs on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. Murphys is the late-night spot for all Marquette students; whether the night starts at a house party or downtown, stopping at Murphs is always a must before heading home for the night. In addition to the best specials on campus, Murphy’s also hosts great entertainment throughout the week: Karaoke on Wednesday nights, Beer Pong league on Thursday night and Pool league on Friday.
On their 21st birthday, students complete at Marquette University right of passage by coming in for a celebratory shot and to receive their “I turned 21 at Murphys Irish Pub” T-shirt. After receiving their bday shirt, students can be seen wearing them proudly across campus and even across the country as alumni after graduating.
