College Football Bars: Where in Washington to watch the Top 25 teams:
6. Auburn
9. South Carolina
12. Georgia
18. Ole Miss
January 29, 2014 |“Mason Inn is hosting a pre-Super Bowl flip cup tournament. The bracket is limited to 24 teams, so register in advance. Even if you’re not participating, there will be drink specials and cranked-up party music. Expect the mayhem to continue all the way through the Super Bowl, so you may want to grab a $5 Red Bull and Vodka for some extra energy.”
January 28, 2014 |“There’s something about Mason Inn that makes people want to mingle. Five minutes in front of the long bar and you’re chatting with someone about a huge play or having friendly banter about the best players. You won’t find anything short of a memorable experience.”
August 29, 2013 |“One of the things about Mason Inn is that it reminds a lot of folks of being at a bar in Athens or Oxford. It’s got a Southern college town feeling. If you’ve been to one of those places, you know what it’s like: It’s more relaxing; there’s a lot of dark wood.”
June 20, 2013 | Mason Inn has been named the #1 sports bar in Washington DC by Zagat with some truly gaudy category ratings:

Atmosphere: 29 | Decor: 24 | Service: 25

May 31, 2013 |“Rooftop bars have been opening left and right this year, and Glover Park is getting in on the action: Mason Inn may have a rooftop bar open as soon as October. Co-owner Fritz Brogan says that Mason Inn reached agreement with the Glover Park ANC and a group of neighbors earlier this week that will allow Mason Inn to move forward with a 48-person rooftop bar.”
January 29, 2013 |“Glover Park’s Mason Inn, a bar known for attracting preppy crowds who love SEC football, might not seem like a natural place for Ravens fans. And yet, as its T-shirts boast, Mason Inn becomes “Baltimore South” on game days. Bartenders serve $9.75 pitchers of Bud Light, pints of Abita Purple Haze and shots of a sweet, “purple drank”-esque concoction they call Raven’s Blood.”
January 3, 2013 |“As the old adage goes, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. And so the owners of popular Georgetown and Glover Park hotspots George and Mason Inn returned to Mount Vernon Square on Monday night, for a sold-out New Year’s Eve celebration.”
October 29, 2012 |“Indeed, the perks of being a VIP were so good, that veteran Hollywood actors Thomas F. Wilson and Alan Thicke (that’s Back to the Future’s Biff Tannen and Growing Pains’ Dr. Jason Seaver to you) even popped upstairs for a drink, fresh from a day of filming an after-school special nearby that they’re jointly producing.”
October 3, 2012 |“The Mason Inn is an “SEC-focused sports bar” that draws alumni groups from Ole Miss, Georgia and South Carolina to watch games on 10 flatscreen TVs and a 100-inch projection screen. Bands and DJs take the stage later in the night. On Sundays, the focus will be the Baltimore Ravens.”
August 30, 2012 |“For fans of the country’s most powerful conference, there’s nowhere better on Saturday than Mason Inn. The one-room roadhouse is the official home of local Georgia, Ole Miss and South Carolina alumni groups, and you’ll spot a fair number of ’Bama and Florida caps in the crowd watching games on 10 large-screen TVs.”

“Hosted by Jake Samperton, Gibbs Fogarty, Hunter Campbell, Austin Cates, Austin Kaytes, Kate Carey, Sam Sterling, Mark Kovler, Mike Gill, Justin Taubman, Sam Grossman, and Margaret Reid, Saturday’s seafood celebration also boasted a live concert courtesy of The Walking Sticks.”
June 4, 2012 |“For the second year in a row, popular Glover Park watering hole Mason Inn rolled out its penchant for southern hospitality, during a special all-you-can-eat crawfish boil hosted by Trevor Santos, Chris May, and Jay Harper.”
February 3, 2012 |“Last night, twenty-somethings funneled into Mason Inn for a country power hour that featured one-minute clips of country music favorites by Tim McGraw, Garth Brooks, Kenny Chesney, Taylor Swift and more. The scene: lots of pretty girls, some of them transplants from southern states; young men in hunting hats and jackets; almost everyone carrying pitchers and pints of beer.”
January 22, 2012 |“Mason Inn is the big-time hangout for Baltimore Ravens fans. They were getting ready to get to the Super Bowl because they thought this game was in the bag. All of these fans had good things to say about the Baltimore Ravens. They say they’re still the best team in the Washington area and next year they’re coming back even stronger.”
December 14, 2011 |“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.”
October 31, 2011 |“Seemingly all of Georgetown and Glover Park’s young professionals transplanted temporarily to The National Mall on Saturday evening, for a sold-out Halloween party hosted by George and Mason Inn. On any normal weekend, the two venues attract a sizeable portion of their respective neighborhoods’ twenty and thirty-somethings, including many who are considered to be some of D.C.’s rapidly rising stars on the Hill and within the philanthropic and business communities.”
October 28, 2011 |“Yacht Rock Revue, a band known for their covers of Steely Dan, Michael McDonald, Jackson Browne and Hall and Oates, played to a packed house at Glover Park’s Mason Inn on Thursday. Band and audience members alike wore nautical-themed gear, including quite a few captain’s hats.”
October 25, 2011 |“Back in August, Georgetown’s Saloun played host to Atlanta’s Yacht Rock Revue, a tribute act that specializes in note-for-note covers of Steely Dan, Michael McDonald, Jackson Browne and Hall and Oates. The band members wore tight polyester shirts, leisure suits and captain’s hats, as did many in the audience. It would come off as an inside joke if the musicianship wasn’t so top-notch. The band returns for its second D.C. show this Thursday at the Mason Inn.”
September 30, 2011 |“Ladies from powderpuff football team, Team Blonde, hosted a NEON fundraiser at Mason Inn last night. They face off Team Brunette on Saturday afternoon, November 12 in the name of the Alzheimer’s Association.”
September 16, 2011 |“Eight 60-inch televisions and a large projector are primed for game day, and there’s a stuffed water buffalo head holding court above the long oakwood bar (his name is Morris, in case you want to say hi). While it’s an official Ole’ Miss zone, a full lineup of sports packages and game-time specials like $8 Bud Light pitchers satisfy a range of fans.”
August 31, 2011 |“Remedying Glover Park’s glaring lack of sports bar-age, this southern-themed skylit space (from the guys behind recently departed Gin and Tonic), boasts a 52-foot southern oak bar, live bands, and games like Golden Tee and Big Buck Hunter. They’re pouring eight drafts underneath a huge water buffalo head named “Morris”, presumably because he’s where you Phil-Up.”
August 26, 2011 |“If you’ve ever wondered why you can’t dance on tables and chairs amid photos of Archie Manning, Bear Bryant and Tim Tebow, wonder no more. And if your Saturday afternoon should bleed into Saturday night, stick around for the honky-tonk-style debauchery, fueled by live country-rock bands on the stage in the front window.”
August 8, 2011 |“Mirroring its debut, the lush harmonies of Rod Stewart’s iconic ‘Maggie May’ were the last sounds to pipe through Gin & Tonic’s booming sound system on Saturday evening, as “Glover Park’s Tavern” delivered its final swan song to an at-capacity crowd of loyal patrons. The Glover Park nightspot now begins its transformation into Mason Inn….”
