Fado Irish Pub Revamps Irish Pub Concept as Buckhead Atlanta Development Launches Official Opening
The history of Fadó Irish Pub and the small group of Irish and Irish-American entrepreneurs who brought the concept, the first of its kind, to the States in 1996 is a storied one. With the launch of the much-anticipated Buckhead Atlanta development though, the mind-set today is very much focused on the present. And, as the development prepares for new restaurants, businesses and residents to move in over the coming months, Fadó Irish Pub continues to pack its schedule with special events, great beer and fantastic new seasonal food menus.
What's Happening New at Fadó this Fall:
September Craft Beer Dinner Series, Thursday, September 18th and 25th
Ticket-holders will enjoy a beer sampling presented by the featured brewery of the night along with a house-made dinner from locally sourced foods. Sam Adams and Sweetwater Brewery are set to host respective dinners and offer customers a special presentation around the beers on hand. Tickets are $25. The first dinner presented by Wild Heaven Brewery on September 11 sold out.
Beer and Bourbon Review, Saturday, September 27, from 2-5 p.m.
An outdoor craft beer and bourbon sampling event with BBQ and live music until 8 p.m. Tickets are on sale now – $35 in advance and $40 on the door. There is also a special VIP Sweetwater Brewery Rooftop Takeover from 1-2 p.m featuring specialty and seasonal beers and a complimentary Sweetwater t-shirt. Tickets are $75 and include access to the unlimited sampling event from 2-5 p.m. as well.
Halloween Bash, Friday, October 31
The Annual Halloween Bash at Fadó, with spooky decorations covering the Pub from top to bottom, features a huge costume contest with cash prizes, drink specials and more – the ultimate night out with friends.
SEASONAL FOOD MENU:
This week, Fadó is set to launch its newest seasonal food menu, featuring made-from-scratch dishes that prove Irish food is anything but boring. The Panzanella is a Tuscan salad typically served in the summer but Fadó mixes it up with seasonal ingredients; warm roasted acorn squash, Brussels sprouts, soda bread croutons (Fairy-free of course), fresh feta cheese, marinated tomatoes and pickled onions tossed in a maple vinaigrette. The Opened Meatloaf Sandwich with tomato relish, cheddar, arugula and a fried egg on toasted sourdough bread has proven to be a favorite amongst staff during tastings. Lighter fare options, such as our Chicken Lettuce Wraps, are perfect for a quick lunch, and our Chicken Pot Pie is sure to satisfy the heartier appetites at dinner this Autumn. Starters include Sun-dried Tomato Hummus and the Honey Chipotle Shrimp Tacos, perfect for sharing at Happy Hour. And, patrons looking to indulge in "afters", can select the Pumpkin Spiced Cheesecake.
Fadó also offers a premium selection of European beers, like Guinness Irish Stout and Duvel from Belgium, as well as local craft beers, such as Atlanta's own Sweetwater Brewery. And, select beers on tap this Fall include Sweetwater Blue and Sweetwater Waterkeeper. Other seasonal craft draught beers include Terrapin Pumpkin and Sam Adams Oktoberfest. Fresh, simple cocktails are a staple and two popular drinks right now include Trinidad Sour with Bulleit rye, Oregat, fresh lemon, and Angastora bitters and the Moscow Mule, with Russian Standard Vodka, Crabbies Alcoholic Ginger Beer, fresh lime juice and served in a copper mug.
Fadó opens at 11 a.m. weekdays and early on weekends for European sports with a full brunch service. Details on hours of operation can be found on the Pub's website.
About Fadó Irish Pub
Fadó (pronounced fuh-doe) Irish Pub has been a staple in the Buckhead community since 1996. Relocated to the Buckhead Atlanta development, Fadó is the only original Buckhead concept to be invited back into the new development where they opened in 2007. Fadó, voted 'Best Of' by a number of local and national publications, is Atlanta's European sports headquarters, an official US Soccer Bar and was voted to the 'The Future 50", as one of the fastest growing restaurant concepts, by Restaurant Business Magazine in 2014.
