Fado's Irish Pub and Restaurant

A balcony library labeled the “James Joyce collection” hangs over the bar. However, this dimly lit pub a block from the Verizon Center is more suited to a tall glass of Guinness than to a reading of Ulysses. After-work crowds often mix with packs of game-day patrons and rugby and soccer fans. Stick to the drafts, which favor British and Irish selections such as Harp, Smithwick’s, and Boddingtons. Appetizers are a step above average bar fare, especially the chicken quesadillas made with boxty potato pancakes instead of tortillas.
