Murphy’s Bar, located at 48-18 Skillman Avenue, closed for good Wednesday.
The establishment was shutdown by the landlord who took possession of the space by court order.
A marshal’s notice was posted on the front door of the bar/restaurant that was filed by the landlord against Murphy’s and proprietor Mike Murphy.
The abrupt closure comes on the heels of the recent announcement that Bliss Street Station, an Irish bar located on Greenpoint Avenue, is shutting its doors this Sunday.
Two years ago, Murphy expanded his business by taking over the space next door—formerly an Ecuadorian restaurant—to open a seafood restaurant.
Murphy, who also owns a pub/restaurant on Long Island (Mineola), then merged it with his existing bar.
The restaurant menu was almost exclusively seafood, where he served items such as lobster, oysters, clams, shrimps, mussels, and crab legs.
Murphy could not be reached for comment.
