A Unique Event Venue in DC

In Washington DC there isn’t an event venue that provides the same level of quality and service in a casual environment as Fadó. Centrally located, our event space is a favorite for corporate, government and personal events. We’ll provide you with a professional event coordinator, customized food and beverage packages, no room fees and the flexibility to honor any special requests.

Our pub is high quality yet casual; it’s an environment where everyone feels comfortable. You can browse our menus, seating charts and testimonials below.


Our Washington DC event space creates freshly prepared food options ranging from great snacks that go perfectly with casual drinks all the way up to a multi-course plated meal. You’d expect (and get) the best Guinness in Washington, DC but we also feature a seasonal, wine, and hand-made cocktails menus along with a wide range of spirits.  Click here to see some of our food options.
