Duffy's Tavern was an American situation comedy radio series that aired from 1941 to 1951. It was later a television series that aired in 1954.

The opening of Duffy's Tavern began with the sound of a piano playing "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling," sometimes with several people singing along. A telephone ringing would cut through the music. Archie would answer the phone: "Duffy's Tavern where the elite meet to eat. Duffy ain't here, Archie the manager speaking" (short pause) "Oh hello Duffy." Duffy, the bar's actual owner was never heard, listners herd only Archie's side of the conversation.
