Take a trip back in time. Our largest area of the pub is designed to reflect the Ireland’s Victorian Age with dark timber and ornate wood carvings. This area also boasts the only elevated area in the pub, Vic Stage.
The Victorian Fire
12-18 Seated or 20-30 Reception Style
Victorian Fire is so aptly named for the ornate and ornamental fireplace centered in this private room. You will have access to the bar as well as plenty of room to mingle in this area of the pub. Be sure to look up, as even the ceiling has touches of Ireland.
8 Seated or 10-15 Reception Style
This area of the pub has our recent addition of doors leading to our 15th Street Patio. Decorated in the style of an old shopkeepers storehouse, is combines the Victorian dark wood paneling with plenty of Bric a Brac to look at.

Designed as if you were stopping into an actual ‘shop’ in Ireland, several cabinets display the shopkeeper’s wares between tables and long benches. This area of the pub will give your guests areas to congregate as well as access to our bar with runs the length of the pub.
The Shop Fire

What every real pub needs! Our working fireplace adds to the whole feel of the room. There is room to mingle, as well as areas for your guests to sit and relax.
13 Seated 15-20 Reception Style
Our most private area of the pub, The Snug is hidden in the back of the pub. Perfect for olden times in Ireland when drinkers did not want to be exposed! Today, it is a great area to sit and enjoy the craic with friends.
The Cottage + Snug

Just adjacent to the Snug, this area is designed as a room in a rustic Irish cottage. Ceiling timbers are exposed and trusted photos of relatives long past are hung on the wooden walls.
The Whole Shebang
Bring in 170 of your closest friends or your staunchest enemies and we might even close the pub down just for you, you never know!
I couldn’t have been any happier with our recent private party at Fado. It was a mixed group of women from our family, from early 20′s to mid-80′s, so I struggled with finding a place that would feel fun and comfortable for all. And of course, we wanted great food and service, too. You came through on all fronts! We had a nice semi-private space in the back and a private little alcove for our incredible buffet. Your staff is so welcoming, friendly and accommodating and the food was amazing! This will be an annual event and I think it would be a unanimous decision by our group to hold it at Fado every year!
