Fadó (pronounced f’doe) is Gaelic for “long ago” and is commonly used to start a story, similar to “once upon a time.” We chose it because we’re telling the story of Ireland’s rich and ever-evolving pub culture. In 1996, a small group of Irish entrepreneurs came to the U.S. and started Fadó with the goal of bringing the best of Dublin pubs to the U.S. That goal stands firm today as we passionately bring Irish Pubs into the 21st Century. Our pub offers private events clients a unique environment, one where our food, beverage, and service offerings are unmatched, in an atmosphere that makes everyone comfortable and feel welcomed. Irish hospitality is alive and well at Fado Irish Pub and we can’t wait to share it with you. Below you’ll find information about our menu and space, but know we can customize customize a food and beverage package for just about any occasion.

Great Center City Bar! Expect to pay Center City prices, but it's worth it! Food and drinks, you can't go wrong.

Great drink options and good vibes. Big tables are good for groups looking to hang out. Small dance floor, but YMMV on whether or not it's actually being used.

Good place for some great pub flare & some pints. I especially enjoyed the burgers, thick cut fries, artisan salads with a Pint of Yards Ale. Service was quick & friendly. Love that you get a large bottle of water too. Walking all over Philly will dehydrate you.
