About this Business
From Our Editors
It's not just the fact that drinks are served in Mason jars that gives The Mason Bar its name—this eatery operates in a building that was once used as a Freemason meeting hall. Built in 1920, this historic structure boasts decor elements such as tall, arched windows and high, lofty ceilings that remind patrons of a jazzier yesteryear. Today, chefs use fresh, local ingredients when serving up the flavors of the Gulf Coast in dishes such as pork tacos, shrimp 'n' grits, and mussels, whereas bartenders stick to the classics, pouring old fashioneds, tom collinses, and snifters of Jay Gatsby's ambition.
