Rapid City bar's renovations almost done


After years of being empty the upstairs renovation of a popular Rapid City bar is nearing completion.

The upstairs of Murphy's hasn't been used for more than 60 years.

In fact, the last time it was used it was a nursing home. 

Now after three years of renovations the upstairs is almost ready to be put to use once again.

General Manager Tony Demaro says the second floor would be used for office space.

All spaces in the building have been rented out.

"I think just having the building look finalized, the window seals, they were old and decrepit and it looks like the upper part was abandoned." said Demaro. "To have all this life and energy is going to be a great thing for business and for this whole side of downtown. As people are moving this way it's kind of exciting."

Two million dollars went into renovations.

The main floor of Murphy's was gutted and renovated in 2011.
