There’s a new place to be in Chi-town. Located in Chicago’s trendy River North neighborhood is Mason, a classic American chophouse and bar in the lobby of FOUND Hotel Chicago. The owners, The h.wood Group from Los Angeles and behind hotspots including Nice Guy, Delilah and 40 Love, also brought in their Windy City outpost of Blind Dragon, a tiki-inspired lounge with private luxury karaoke suites, to the hotel.
At Mason, they have created a sophisticated, yet a rustic atmosphere filled with vintage black and white photographs and plush leather booths. Locals and visitors can enjoy after-work drinks mixed by Justin Campbell, Bar Director, and his team as well as a cocktail paired with a perfectly-cooked steak.
