Fadó Irish Pub will open its second Atlanta area location next year in midtown Atlanta. The pub has locations across the country but has been looking to expand its metro Atlanta presence. The new 5,238 square foot Fadó will open at the corner of Peachtree and 8th Streets at the Shops at Metropolis. Fadó is opening in place of the short -lived La Tagliatella, an Italian restaurant.
Fadó was reportedly in talks for the midtown space about a year ago but apparently lost out to La Tagliatella. Fadó was also reportedly in talks to open a new restaurant at Elan Westside, a new apartment complex on Howell Mill, but has since pulled its interest from the project.
Midtown is already home to Rí Rá Irish Pub at 1010 Midtown but I think the new Fadó will do very well.
The new Fadó is expected to open in the first quarter of next year and joins an existing location on Buckhead Avenue in serving the Atlanta market Irish fare and a wide assortment of beers.
