Conveniently located in center city, just steps from Rittenhouse Square, the Kimmel Center, the Academy of Music and Broad Street, we are easy to get to but difficult to leave!
Fadó (pronounced f’doe) is an Irish term meaning ‘long ago’. It’ often used 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 evolving Pub culture.
Yes, you’ll get great Guinness and Fish and Chips at the pubs in Dublin, but today you will also get from-scratch cooking and seasonal food menus, craft beers from local breweries and quality, housemade cocktails. The Irish Pub in Ireland has evolved and we have evolved with them. To us, our food is as important as our drink and we exceed even the highest food expectations. All the items are made fresh in house and you will see our food menu change seasonally.
An Irish pub in Center City Philadelphia since 2001, our authentic Irish Pub was imported from Ireland. The interior is unmatched in Philadelphia. Cozy up by the fireplace or settle down on the patio. At Fadó, we’re here to help you escape from everyday life and enjoy some friendly banter, delicious food, and superb drink selections. Reserve a space for you and your friends, whether it be corporate events, a holiday party, or a birthday – our Event Planner has you covered.
Not only do we have the best Irish and European draughts, we’ve introduced a number of local crafts to pay homage to our fine city and its own celebrated pub culture. Our cocktails are made with the freshest of ingredients and will surprise you with its creativity.
Our weekly events keep the craic (fun) fresh! Test your wits on Wednesday nights with our Pub Quiz, where you may win valuable prizes. For those who like to party, our Club Shebeen on the weekend has DJ Press Play keeping the dance floor packed and making us a top spot for nightlife in the city. And, for our soccer fans, we take our reputation as best soccer bar in Philly very seriously. We show the English Premier League and all Celtic games live as well as La Liga, Serie A and, of course, US Soccer and 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.
