Fadó is an authentic Irish pub- it was originally designed and built in Ireland and then shipped to Columbus. Fadó serves more Guinness than any other Irish pub in Columbus, all of which is to the highest standards. All of our Guinness comes straight from St James Gate, Dublin, Ireland.
To make it a true St. Patrick's Day in Columbus, Fadó will put special emphasis on proper Irish food and Irish drink. You will always get a perfect pint of Guinness, which is served along with proper Irish coffees, Baileys Irish cream, and Columbus’s widest selection of Irish whiskeys. All of our Irish food recipes are prepared from scratch: the traditional Irish Boxty, Corned Beef and Cabbage, and the Irish pub favorite like Fish & Chips. Fadó spares no expense to bring its customers the best Guinness and Irish food in Columbus.
