Sports Bars: Buckhead's long-standing Irish pub is a choice option for those who prefer being part of a rowdy crowd come game day. View the website before heading in to keep tabs on the featured game of the eve--they're big on showing European games live, so soccer fans, head on in! Make sure to bring along a designated driver or book Uber before heading out (same goes for all of these bars). Regularly occurring drink specials, happy hours, late-night menus and a heady beer selection make it easy to get tipsy quick. Stay for dinner (get something Irish like the shepherd's pie, all-day Irish breakfast or fish and chips) and make a night out of it.
Pubs: This Buckhead hotspot offers authentic Irish pub atmosphere with food, drink, and entertainment to match. Inside, you'll find quintessential dark-wood bar areas and plenty of "pub" ambiance, though the place does tend to get packed quickly after the sun goes down. A stone patio towards the rear is a favorite hangout, no matter the season, and a few bar areas make getting a long, dark quaff a little easier. Fadó features live music on Monday nights – dancing is always encouraged – as well as special events to celebrate soccer (football!) matches. To mark your visit to this Buckhead favorite, be sure to stop by the gift shop and pick up a few things Irish.
