WORCESTER – The owners of Funky Murphy’s Bar and Grill on Shrewsbury Street in Worcester are opening up a new location on the other side of the city in Tatnuck Square.
The new pub-style restaurant will be called “Murphy’s” and will replace the former Tatnuck Grille — which closed Friday, April 13 — at 638 Chandler St.
Murphy’s will be the third restaurant co-owned by Cal Dolan and Dessie McKane, as the pair also owns a Funky Murphy’s in Marlborough which opened in the Fall of 2015. Dolan and McKane are also co-owners of Quinn’s Irish Pub on West Boylston St with co-owner Tim Quinn.
Dolan and McKane have owned and operated Funky Murphy’s on Shrewsbury St. since 2004. They previously owned the former Jose Murphy’s on Water St. in Worcester until 2013 following a burst pipe that forced the business to close.
