Fado Irish Pub
Sure, it might be an international chain. Sure, it might be a tad on the corny side. But damn if this multi-story River North tavern isn’t a tried-and-true good time. Sidle up to the ground floor’s polished horseshoe bar and drink your way through their standout whiskey collection, or grab yourself a pint of perfectly poured Guinness and cozy up in the traditional Irish snug upstairs. You might be surprised to learn that much of the space’s decor and furniture actually come straight from the Emerald Isle, elevating this Chicago institution from an EPCOT-level imitation to a bonafide drinking den with old-world roots.
How to book: Stop by for first come, first served seating, with a $10 cover charge after 1 pm on St. Patrick’s Day.
