From the December/January 2013 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:
The Mason Inn (2408 Wisconsin Ave.) has applied for permission to serve alcohol on a new rooftop deck. The application, submitted to the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration in mid-October, states that the maximum capacity of the space would be 48 people, including 2 staffers. The design features tables and a separate bar area, as well as a sound wall at the rear of the deck. ABRA placards will be posted at Mason Inn inviting public comment on the application.
The bar is currently disputing a noise citation stemming from an April 29 incident. At about 2:30 a.m. on that spring Sunday, a resident of 37th St. called the ABRA hotline (reachable through 311) to report loud noise coming from the bar. An ABRA investigator visited the resident’s home and noted “heavy levels of bass while inside,” and a $250 citation was issued, according the investigator’s report. The Mason Inn challenged the citation at a November 28 hearing, and a show cause hearing in the matter has been scheduled for February 20.
