From the May 2011 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:
Gin & Tonic (2408 Wisconsin Ave.) will soon be transformed from a fratty late-night spot into an “upscale eatery and sports tavern that appeals to a wide demographic,” according to co-owner Fritz Brogan. The tentative name for the new restaurant is The Mason Inn, a nod to Glover Park historical personage Guy Mason, a D.C. commissioner in the mid-20th century.
The renovation, estimated to cost $800,000, will include a new layout with more seating, a rooftop terrace with sound barrier walls, and a full restaurant kitchen. Gin & Tonic is currently open only Thursday through Saturday nights, but the renovated establishment is expected to offer regular lunch and dinner service, Brogan says.
“We have already begun working with neighbors and ANC [Advisory Neighborhood Commission] members to lay out our plans and collaborate on fulfilling our goals for renovations,” Brogan adds. “With the new upscale concept and the full menu, we look forward to making The Mason Inn a destination that all Glover Park residents can enjoy.”
