Question about Murphy's in Boca (Thursday night)

So i got this little flyer thing today talking about how it's such a great college party place.  I went there on a Thursday night a few weeks back right before spring break and NOOOO one was there.  What really ticked me off is that i had to shell out 10$!! just to get in the place!  Anyway, is this place actually worth going to, did i go on the wrong Thursday night?  Or is there a better option?

So i got this little flyer thing today talking about how it's such a great college party place.  I went there on a Thursday night a few weeks back right before spring break and NOOOO one was there.  What really ticked me off is that i had to shell out 10$!! just to get in the place!  Anyway, is this place actually worth going to, did i go on the wrong Thursday night?  Or is there a better option?

"right before spring break" might have been your problem. I remember around Spring Break I was out with friends and Boca seemed a little deserted. I would try again.

Just gotta hit each place on College Night (i.e. Irishmen on Monday).  A better option? Try Scoop. The three places people always hit up are Murphy's, Scoop, and the Irishmen. Bru's Room on Hillsboro is awesome too… last time I was there on a Friday and they had a good college crowd. Occasionally I'll hear about something at the SABA Lounge in… Mizner? I think that's where it is. Haven't been there yet. They're opening a new bar near Scoop/Boardriders that's all wood interior. It's called The Lodge. Looks nice. Hope they have a College Night. They'd be dumb not to.

If none of that works for you and you're willing to drive the ~20 minutes, you can head down to America's Backyard in Ft.Lauderdale next to Revolution Live. I heard that Automatic Slims at the Hard Rock is good too.

Murphy's was the place to be on thursday when I was there, but that was a few years ago.  Also, my buddy Mike and Bryan used to play guitar up there, but I know they don't play anymore.  Spring break may have been the problem too, but that place was usually empty till around 10 or so, then it  got packed.

Murphy's was THE PLACE to be on Tuesday nights when I was in school. And for those over 21, Murphy's wasn't bad on Thursdays.

But within the last year, Murphy's and long-time promoter (over six years) Marshall Sklar split ways. I don't know if that has anything to do with it.

If you love kareoke and a laid back, small-bar atmosphere, Holloway's is great on Tuesdays and Saturdays. You have to be 21 to get in though.

Unless there's another Automatic Slims in the Hard Rock the one I know of is in Riverfront. Dicey Riley's is the bar in the Hard Rock, the rest are mainly clubs. I'm out dating myself but I know there's others on here who used to go to No Way Jose back in the day on Thursday nights. That place was rockin. When I first came down here it used to be Surf Cafe for nickel drafts and Nippers for $1 pitchers

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

It was No Way Jose's until the fall of 2002 - about Octoberish. Then it changed to Crabby Jack's.

Haha, man you just dated youself horribly.  A) They just opened an Automatic Slims at the Hard Rock a few months back.  B) Dicey Rileys is in Riverfront its Murphy's Law that is at the Hard Rock C) No Way Jose's….LOL, that was big 7 years ago…that place became Crabby Jacks and is now shut down D) I think Surf Cafe shut its doors in 2002 E) Nippers is still the place to go to make mistakes at 5 a.m. but the pitchers are more than $1 these days.

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.

Dicey Rileys and Murphy's Law I always get those confused. Wow, I had no idea they opened up an Automatic Slims at Hard Rock. Thought the only one was in Riverfront. That one still there?

Don't feel too bad Jab,  I had a lot of good times at no way jose's, and Surf cafe for weds. reggae nights.  Nippers was good for the after hours stop, although by that time I usually had no idea where I was or what I was drinking. ;D
