Popped in here for a quick drink. Only stayed for 1 as the place felt soulless. No atmosphere, slow service and disjointed. We will re visit as we are certain this was just one of those nights

Every time we come to DC, my wife and I stop by Fado Irish Pub. This is an accidental tradition, but one we have come to enjoy. The staff is friendly and the drinks are good!

I really enjoyed this pub. It has a modern twist on traditional Irish fare. It has great food and large beer and other drink selection. I'll be back.
