Events at Fadó: A Unique Event Venue in Chicago

Our unique private event space in Chicago’s River North is used year-round for birthday parties, wedding rehearsal dinners, reunions, corporate events, team lunches, happy hour, office holiday parties for small gatherings, or full event space buy outs.

Not only can we customize a food and beverage package for just about any occasion, but we can also coordinate all sorts of on-site entertainment options, including (but for sure not limited to) Vegas-style poker tables, cigar rolling stations, live music, trivia, and much more.

Seating & Event Space

The pub has a number of unique areas all featuring different design motifs inspired by old and new Ireland. Many feature private ‘snugs’ that are unique to Irish Pubs. See below for seating and standing capacities.

The Purty Loft

75 Seated or 170 Reception Style

This space, designed in Ireland, is a throwback to the Irish pubs of the early 20th century.  The bar and back bar are originally from The Purty Kitchen pub in Dun Leary, County Dublin, and are well over 100 years old.  A variety of tables and areas provide for a flexible space which can accommodate any type of event.

Select areas within the Purty Loft can be used to accommodate smaller parties of 10 – 55 seated/12 – 75 reception style.
