    Paid $20 to watch half a game of rugby, was told 3 floors and when we came in only bottom floor accessible, staff were rude and arrogant. Drinks expensive. Yours.

    They've got the Irish standards on tap but nothing else obscure or singular. Lamb sandwich was great though.

    It's testy Guinness nitro IPA 5.8%. Nevertheless, the service was unfortunately slow.

    Great breakfast. Went to see the Argentina-Australia rugby game and it was packed, but even still, the service was very good.

    Dark, sprawling, big messy dump of an Irish bar, perfect fit events and parties. Many rooms on multiple floors. As at Hogwarts, the stairs like to change.

    Tables in front only allow for 4 people and they won't let you add chairs. Nice staff otherwise.

    If you're feeling wanderlusty but are too broke to travel (wah), Fadó & its Guinness draft will transport you to an alternate European universe, robust with soccer/rugby offerings. Atmosphere: rowdy

    The atmosphere is rustic, but there is ample outdoor seating that isn't dark & dated. The cocktails are good, if overpriced. The food looked gr8, but fell down here and there in the taste department.

    Not the best meal to be honest. The Parmesan chicken burger was a 5 out of 10. A bit dry :-(

    Very hard to pick something from the menu. Nothing seemed to jump out. BUT the mac n cheese was BOMB , pork tacos were good but very Americanized, and the thick fries were delicious :)

    Good beer. Sh*t bar. Only come if it's past 2:00 am & you're desperate. Horrible service. Bartenders have serious 'tudes. Frakking expensive too, even for downtown Chicago.
