Fadó is an Irish term meaning 'long ago'. At Fadó we are telling the tale of Ireland's rich and celebrated Pub culture - a culture of hearty food and drink, good music, warm hospitality and friendly banter. In the tradition of Irish Pubs today and long ago, it's the Irish spirit that makes a Fadó.
Leviticus had it right: "Proclaim Liberty Throughout All the Land unto All the Inhabitants Thereof." You can see this quote fashioned on the Liberty Bell, or drop by Fadó and witness firsthand the Philly citizenry liberating themselves from the shackles of their workday.
Our guests make an easy transition from work to play over the perfect pint, bountiful comfort food, lively music, and craic that puts the Bell to shame! Walk into Fadó and take a tour of Victorian-era Dublin: a comfortable setting rich with deep mahogany and cast iron carvings, cozy fireplaces, and displays of antique china and housewares.
Make yourself at home in one of the intimate nooks that seat two, or up to a dozen. One glance at Fadó's menu will get your appetite in full gear as you peruse the best Philadelphia has to offer in authentic Irish cuisine with a contemporary flare. Start off with the fresh Galway Bay Mussels, followed by our infamous Fish and Chips.
Even on a full stomach you'll find it hard to resist polishing off your meal with our new Black and Tan Brownie with Guinness Ice Cream.
It goes without saying that Fadó stocks the finest in Irish and European draught beers. Our draught system is state-of-the-art, and our bartenders pour each and every pint with craftsman perfection. You'll like the value of our 20 oz Imperial Pint, as well as the high standards Fadó's staff sets for its presentation.
Our weekly events keep the craic fresh! Test your wits on Wednesday nights with our Pub Quiz, where you may win valuable prizes. For those who like to party, Fadó's Club Shebeen on the weekend has DJ Tommy J keeping the dance floor packed. And, for our soccer fans we show the English Premier League and all Celtic games live as well as all the major European competitions and American sports.
At Fadó we understand that you work hard enough - you shouldn't have to work to have a good time.
