Have a Drink at Murphy’s Bar!

“99 bottles of beer on the wall, 99 bottles of beer. Take one down and pass it around, 98 bottles of beer on the wall….”

And the song goes on until the last bottle of beer is gone. But at Murphy’s Law, this year’s partner for CitySolve Urban Race Rochester, there is over 100 different types of beer and scotch from all over the world that not even a song can quantify. Open 7 days a week from 11:30 AM to 2:30 AM, Murphy’s Law offers a wide variety of food for lunch, dinner, and late night such as mouth watering crab cakes, juicy burgers, pub fare food of Irish origin, and refreshing salads that can satisfy anyone’s taste buds.

And of course, when there is food, there needs to be entertainment. Murphy’s Law screens several popular American and international sport events such as NFL, Sentana, and MLB, which is more than enough sports action for everyone.

Looking for a place to host an event such as a birthday party? Well, look no further, because Murphy Law not only offers special packages for party planners but also a private balcony and bar!

Sit Back and Relax

A combination of classy and casual elements, Henry’s Midtown Tavern, who is partnering with CitySolve Urban Race Atlanta, is the perfect place to hang out. Located in the heart of Midtown Atlanta, Henry’s offers a menu proliferated with a wide selection of appetizers, entrées, and desserts.

But that’s only the tip of the iceberg. After walking pass its unique wooden barn doors, you will find two bars decorated with wood textured columns that have 12 draft beers and 50 craft beers, which is more than enough to quench your thirst after or during a hearty meal. Giant television screens featuring sport championships, award shows, and season premieres, and the “Dog Wall of Fame,” where you can nominate your dog to have its picture posted on the wall, are found throughout the restaurant.

Henry’s 60-seat patio is also the perfect spot to go outside and enjoy some fresh air while dining on mouth-watering food. Even if the sixty-seat patio is crowded, there is another 150-seat side deck shaded under the canopy of trees. So come check out Henry’s Midtown Tavern, where there’s enough room for everyone to sit back and relax.
