Fadó Buckhead is the perfect event venue, offering a distinct décor that reflects Ireland’s rich history. Large areas to meet and mingle give way to more intimate snugs that are perfect for a quiet conversation. Semi-private and private space is available. The Venue Showcasing the mix of Irish Culture, down through the ages through urban and rural living while paying homage to the arts and crafts, Fado Buckhead features a number of areas for your event. The Victorian 15 Seated or 15-25 Reception Style Representative of the Georgian style architecture of Dublin during the late 1800's to early 1900's, the grandeur of the Victorian period is reflected by rich colors and tapestries, darkly stained wood and ornamental pieces. You will also see portraits of some of the Victorian period’s most notable literary contributors such as Oscar Wilde and Bernard Shaw. The Cellars 30 Seated or 30-50 Reception Style The stone archways flanking the backlit bottle displays and the brewery murals depict Dublin’s brewery history. The large copper framed feature in the center is influenced by the chimney at St. James’s Gate in Dublin. A large display of old whiskey bottles makes one thirsty for “the water of life”, in Gaelic: uisce beathe (ish-ki-baha) or Irish Whiskey. The Grand House 40 Seated or 40-70 Reception Style From the ornate Celtic iron work framing the fireplace to the decorative vaulted ceiling, this gem of Gaelic history is truly grand. Keeping with the tradition of our namesake, Fadó, traditional Irish folklore is well represented in this area of the pub. Brighid, the Goddess of the Hearth, rests above the fireplace. She is an incarnation of pagan times. It is said that when she was born, a flame reached from the top of her head all the way to the heavens. Also seen as the Goddess of the Forge and of Farm-work. The placement of the large curved metalwork lighting feature connects the Forge and craftsmanship. The Shop 50 Seated or 50-150 Reception Style Past tradition twined the pub and the shop as one. Still in certain counties of Ireland today, rural pubs will sell provisions as both shop and local pub. Hanging products from overcrowded shelves and walls gives the impression of times past. The Mezzanine 24 Seated or 24-35 Reception Style Up the stairway to the second level is a quaint nook featuring Irish landscapes and Celtic art stemming from the time of St. Patrick. The decorative paintings are influenced by the Book of Kells. Monks, both authors and artists, spreading Christian faith throughout Ireland represent this period of history. The Rooftop Garden 50 Seated or 50-150 Reception Style Continue up the stairs to the rooftop and the West of Ireland’s cottages are portrayed. Stone walls and large murals depict the character of the rugged landscape, a charming trait of the homeland. The Rooftop Garden has enclosed and open air space for to add charm to your event.
