Murphy’s is at the corner of Trade and Graham and will be your new Irish bar hangout.

This is the former Celebs space and it has been completely redone before Wednesday’s opening night.

Guinness and Harp on tap (along with locals NoDa Jam Session and Birdsong Higher Ground, and nationals Shock Top, Stella and Sam Adams).

The decor is on-point.

The food presentation is top-notch.

I went with the pretzel bites to start. I heard the wings were popular, but I made the right choice. The sauce opened my nasal passages but didn’t leave lingering heat.

The shredded lamb sandwich was incredible as well. Nice bit of sweetness to it.

The vibe is laid back.

It’s definitely the kind of place people are going to come to after work, so you’ll get the whole dress-shirt-sleeves-rolled-up thing. But you’ll also feel perfectly fine coming in shorts and a T-shirt (as I did).

The upstairs bar and patio will open this weekend.

Not quite finished yet, but this is going to be popular. The ground-level patio was packed by the time I left, too.
