Our Chicago event venue was made in Ireland, has three levels, six different design themes and a 100 year old reclaimed Dublin bar. We also feature a number of intimate ‘snugs’ that are unique to Irish pubs. Let our dedicated event planner take you on a tour of the pub to learn more or take a virtual tour here.

The Gaelic

24 Seated or 40 Reception  Style
Designed to reflect the the origins of Irish history and the beginning of our story. The walls are from the delicate tracery apparent in old tapestries and from artifacts such as the Book of Kells combined with light timbers of oak beams and light oak furniture.

The Industrial Cottage

24 Seated or 40 Reception Style
Rustic design with whitewashed walls, flagged floors – ceiling timbers exposed. Simple décor with Bric a Brac and velvet curtains enwrapping you among handcrafted tables, straight from the Emerald Isle.

The Mezzanine

24 Seated or 40 Reception Style
Dedicated to St. Brendan’s voyage, you are surrounded by olde world maps, murals and lovely carved stoned. Invite your guest to sit back and enjoy their voyage while sipping pints the Irish way.

The Snug

12 Seated or 15 Reception Style
Ornate a symbol of the craftsmanship of the Victorian era. Red velvet curtains and dark wood give this area a cozier feel.

The Victorian

6 Seated or 15 Reception Style
Just adjacent to the Snug, take a trip back in time. Urban influences and unique décor are conducive to great conversation.

The Fireplace

11 Seated or 15 Reception Style
What every real pub needs! Our fireplace is quarried from local stone and certainly adds to the whole feel of the room.

The Stage

14 Seated or 20 Reception Style

Be the center of attention in the only elevated area in the pub!

The Purty Loft

70 Seated or 175 Reception Style
This is the whole upstairs of the pub, named after the famous Purty Kitchen in Dun Laoghaire.

The Whole Shebang

Bring in 400 of your closest friends or your staunchest enemies and we might even close the pub down just for you, you never know!

Fado was fabulous for our management outing. The team was extremely friendly and accomodating. Each bartender/server that assisted our large group was efficient and always had a smile for us. Thank you. You guys rock!

Everything went really well with our holiday party at your pub on Friday. Everyone in my group had a great time! Your staff provided awesome service, and I’d like to especially thank you for coming in to oversee the event while you were not feeling well. Again, many thanks!

Fado’s cozy and authentic Irish pub atmosphere combined well with our displays and branding to make a great venue for a hospitality event for our representatives and customers who were in Chicago for an industry trade show. The Fado staff was friendly and cooperative. We received many favorable comments from our guests.
