From Dublin, Ireland, to Dublin, Ohio, local Publican and owner/operator Ian Montgomery (Monty) is excited to debut a new concept, Fadó Pub and Kitchen. We are located in the vibrant Bridge Park District and combine the fun, energy and connection of an Irish pub with a kitchen that passionately serves fresh, accessible, European-inspired food.
Local sourcing is a menu mainstay for both the food and beverage programs. Our coffee and espresso, our draft beer and spirits and many meats and produce are from suppliers in Ohio. We are committed to partnering with local vendors when possible.
All of the decor was constructed and imported from Monty's home town of Dublin, Ireland. Our bright and open floor plan creates a casual environment that encourages guests to linger and connect with each other.
Ian Montgomery (Monty to his friends) is a Dublin, Ireland native and owner of Fadó Pub and Kitchen.
Monty was a former Garda (police officer) in Dublin, Ireland. He decided that wasn't stressful enough so he decided to go into the food and beverage industry! He settled with his family in Columbus, OH., in 2006 and joined the team at Fadó Irish Pub in Easton. There he helped guide the pub’s cocktail and whiskey program, and focused on the pub’s hospitality ethos and training.
Bridge Park was merely a plan on a page when Monty began creating Fadó Pub and Kitchen for Dublin, Ohio. And, at the center of his planning were people. Monty's commitment is to provide a memorable experience for everyone on each visit.
He lives with his wife and 4 kids not far from Bridge Park and you’ll see him most days working in the pub. He’s enjoys Guinness, Tullamore D.E.W. Irish Whiskey and having a good laugh at the bar. He invites you to join him.
