Reed Landry and Fritz Brogan, both owners of The Mason Inn (2408 Wisconsin Ave.), will open a “modern American restaurant” together at 1336 U Street, according to the Washington Business Journal. The two men also co-own Mission Mexican restaurant (1606 20th St.) in Dupont Circle and  the Georgetown nightclub Chinese Disco (3251 Prospect Ave.), formerly known as George. The pair have no plans to close Mason Inn, the paper reports. Last we heard, talks on a possible move from Mason Inn’s current location to 2412 Wisconsin Ave.—the vacant former home of JP’s Lounge—were ongoing.

From the April 2014 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

A building permit for a rooftop deck at The Mason Inn (2408 Wisconsin Ave.) was issued on February 7, and the deck should be under construction soon, according to tavern co-owner Fritz Brogan. “Due to the building’s age and some other logistical issues, construction planning has been more complicated than we originally anticipated,” Brogan says, “but we’re eagerly awaiting the day that our neighbors can enjoy cool drinks on a warm day upstairs.” Brogan expects the deck to open this summer. The new outdoor space will seat 51 patrons, according to the permit.

The Alcoholic Beverage Control Board yesterday voted to allow The Mason Inn (2408 Wisconsin Ave.) to serve alcohol on a new rooftop deck. Construction permits will be filed this week, and the deck should open in September, says co-owner Fritz Brogan. The bar’s ownership agreed to several noise-reduction measures—including encircling the deck with a wall—to resolve formal protests filed by Advisory Neighborhood Commission 3B and a group of near neighbors. “We’re excited for the rooftop to open,” says Brogan. “We’re glad we were able to find common ground with the ANC, and we’re looking forward for the rooftop being a place that all of our Glover Park neighbors can enjoy.”

From the May 2013 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

Rooftop drinks may be in the offing at The Mason Inn (2408 Wisconsin). On April 24, the day the ABC Board was scheduled to hold a hearing on the bar’s application for permission to serve liquor on a new rooftop deck, co-owner Fritz Brogan and ANC commissioner Jackie Blumenthal each emailed the Board asking for extra time. “We are close to a settlement agreement, but a technical matter cannot be resolved quickly,” Blumenthal wrote. The protest hearing has been rescheduled for May 29.

From the February 2012 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

In the early morning hours of December 24, two patrons at the Mason Inn (2408 Wisconsin Ave.) got into a fight, and one came away with a gash to the forehead that required eight stitches to close, according to a police report. In a dispute over whether one of the men was “harassing” a third person, the man accused of harassment headbutted his accuser, whose forehead was lacerated. The two men “were immediately separated and escorted out,” reports bar co-owner Fritz Brogan. The injured man drove himself to Sibley Hospital, where his wound was treated. The event is under investigation by ABRA.

The Mason Inn (2408 Wisconsin Ave.) is now open 7 days a week, and Monday night is open mic night, says co-owner Fritz Brogan. “It’s something that we have gotten requests from neighbors of all different ages and backgrounds for, so we decided to launch it,” Brogan reports. “There’s no sign-up or cost.” The event starts at 6:30 p.m. on Mondays, and performers in all genres are welcome, Brogan adds: “We look forward to seeing more of our neighbors showcase their musical abilities.”

We first heard it on Twitter, and we can confirm: The Mason Inn (2408 Wisconsin Ave.) is now a spot for Baltimore Ravens fans to gather and watch games on the big screen…even when the Washington Redskins are playing. Purple jerseys outnumbered street clothes through much of Sunday’s slaughter of the Indianapolis Colts. Because of the bar’s many flatscreen TVs, though, fans could keep an eye on other games, including the Skins’ honorable loss to the New England Patriots. The inn’s new NFL allegiance was suggested by a few Baltimoreans on its staff, says co-owner Fritz Brogan.
