Fadó (pronounced f’doe) is an Irish term meaning ‘long ago’. It is used in Ireland to start a story (the equivalent of ‘once upon a time’ ). We chose the name because at Fadó, we are telling the story of Ireland’s rich and evolving Pub culture.
Great Guinness, Fish and Chips, traditional music and footie on the T.V. will always be important parts of pubs in Dublin. But today in the most successful, so are from-scratch cooking and seasonal food menus that rival the best restaurants, craft beers from local breweries and quality, housemade cocktails. The Irish Pub in Ireland has evolved and we’ve evolved with them.
