Fadó Pub and Kitchen Grand Opening

Fadó Pub and Kitchen

The Project

Fadó Pub and Kitchen opened in October 2018 in Dublin, Ohio’s Bridge Park District. Born out of Fadó Irish Pub, Fadó Pub and Kitchen is a completely new restaurant concept for parent company, Fadó Pubs, Inc. The restaurant combines the fun, energy and connection of a pub that celebrates its Irish roots with a kitchen passionately serving fresh, European inspired food and drinks.  

At the heart of Fadó Pub and Kitchen is hospitality and ensuring guests have a great experience, whether it’s from sampling the restaurant’s high-end selection of wines and cocktails, experiencing new, forward-thinking European dishes or enjoying the late-night entertainment of the ‘Reunion Disco.’ 

Inspire worked with Fadó Pub and Kitchen to develop a comprehensive media relations and community relations strategy to promote the restaurant opening.  

Media were invited to attend a hard hat tour for a sneak peek of the restaurant and experience the ambiance firsthand. Inspire issued a press release to local and hospitality trade media about the Fadó Pub and Kitchen’s grand opening and pitched interview opportunities with its proprietor and Dublin, Ireland native. Additionally, Inspire developed community lists of stakeholders, area employers, apartment complexes and more to attend a grand opening event and for post-opening communications.
