Mrs. Murphy & Son's Irish Bistro




Nestled in the heart of Chicago’s NorthCenter neighborhood, Mrs. Murphy and Sons Irish Bistro intertwines mouthwatering Irish cuisine with a gracious event space to create a truly unique wedding venue! Offering five interesting dining rooms for occasions both grand and intimate, this Bistro is sure to provide a setting that suits your personal tastes and preferences. The expansive Elizabeth Room boasts rustic exposed brick and cherry wood floors, creating a warm atmosphere that is ideal for large ceremonies or receptions!
