Dallas Observer's Description

In press releases leading up to the opening of McFadden's, the key phrase was “The Irish Are Coming,” but the surface is about as far as they reach. There are some large fixtures in place that are somewhat convincing. A windowed wall that divides the massive space into two rooms is painted the color of stout beer, and looks like it could be found along an Irish street. However, going to the cavernous Addison bar for an Irish pub experience is a lot like going to a Tex-Mex restaurant in Dublin in hopes of an authentic meal. The staples are there: Guinness, Bass and Smithwicks are on tap, along with cheap shots of Jameson, but the heart – it's all Addison.

    JC and Nick are the sexiest bartenders there! And pretty badass!

  • David Y. on 02/08/13

    This DJ is absolutely terrible. Imagine that friend of yours that changes the radio so much that you never hear a full song in his car. Now give him complete control over the music in a bar.

    Lewis must be wrong because I had excellent service on the weekend but it only takes a little bit for a drink because there is 1,000 people in here. I understood and had a blast.

    My ears are ringing after leaving.

    Don't bother, bartenders are slow and intentionally avoid eye contact. I know it's brand new but seriously, much needed training needs to be done before I come back.
