Fadó is an authentic Irish pub- it was originally designed and built in Ireland and then shipped to Philadelphia. Fadó serves the highest quality pint of Guinness in all of Philadelphia. All of the Guinness at Fado comes straight from St James Gate, Dublin, Ireland.
To make it a true St. Patrick's Day in Philadelphia, Fadó will put special emphasis on proper Irish food and Irish drink. This season Fadó will launch Kilkenny Irish Ale to serve along with proper Irish coffees, Baileys Irish cream, and a wide selection of Irish whiskeys. All of the Fado 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 Philadelphia.
