Fadó, pronounced f'doe, is the Irish expression meaning "long ago". The term was commonly used as the preface of old Irish stories told by the Seanchaí (Shana-kee) or storyteller. At Fadó we are telling the story of Ireland's rich and celebrated pub culture. It is a culture of hospitable surroundings, good food and good drink, and friendly conversation- what we call "craic".
Fadó was started by a small group of Irish and Irish-American entrepreneurs.
Their goal was simple: bring the feeling and the spirit of Ireland's pub culture to the States along with great Guinness, high quality food, and a environment where staff were free to be themselves and customers could escape from the day to day.
We consider Fadó a different type of Irish pub. We blend the best of the old with the best of the new. Our decor and friendly staff evoke images of the great old pubs of Ireland whereas our style of operating - our music, food, beverages - connects more so with the contemporary pubs and bars of modern Ireland.
