Fadó Irish Pub
As a city with many Western expats, Abu Dhabi
features restaurants that offer a retreat to the familiar. Sometimes another kebab, another bowl of hummus, or another ball of kibbe won’t do the trick—and that's when you turn to a pint of Guinness and some fish-and-chips. Abu Dhabi's Fadó is the latest outpost of the Irish-owned American pub chain; it's located in the Oryx Hotel in the vibrant Khalidiya neighborhood. The menu boasts all the pub standards you would expect, including burgers and chicken wings, but the live music on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights is the real draw. Listen to a Filipino band play American classic-rock standards over a glass of wine, a cocktail from the well-stocked bar, or just a nice, cold pint of beer.
