  JC Murphy's
by steventilly

When is an Irish Pub not an Irish Pub? This one bears a plaque declaring "Guinness Official Irish Pub" and it's called JC Murphy's, so that must surely make it an Irish Pub. Except that when you get inside you could be in downtown Havanna or somewhere, it's all so typically colonial with it's ochre coloured walls, spinning roof fans and laid back latin vibe. And when I asked for 2 pints of Guinness the staff didn't even understand me - does Guinness not sound like Guinness in Spanish? In the end I had to point at it!
It's a great pub though, I liked the atmosphere and I liked the music, and of course I liked the Guinness ;-)
