A Bourbon At...Mason Dixon


Can you imagine what it would look like if Death&Co and Brother Jimmy’s had a baby? Answer: Mason Dixon. Taxidermy, reclaimed wood, and skinny jeans meet Buck Hunter, a mechanical bull, and khakis. There is one thing that distinguishes Mason Dixon from your both of these places: It has an extensive list of bourbons. In fact, the bartender claimed that they had the largest bourbon selection in Manhattan, featuring over 70 different kinds. Not bad.


A Bourbon At?is sponsored by our friends at Basil Hayden’s Bourbon. Basil Hayden’s is handcrafted, light-bodied and aged longer with twice as much rye to produce an incredibly approachable, sophisticated and luxurious bourbon. It’s spicy. Unexpected. And full of potential. Just like your plans tonight.
The crowd at Mason Dixon can vary depending on which night you happen to go. On Thursday through Saturday, you are likely to run into bachelorette parties and displaced Murray Hill-ers. If you arrive earlier in the week, you can expect to find a scattering of locals. The music lends itself to the good vibes of the place, bouncing from AC/DC to The Beatles to Led Zeppelin.

No matter when you go, Mason Dixon is a great place to drink bourbon with your friends. So grab a glass of bourbon and laugh at that person making an ass of himself on the mechanical bull. Down a few more glasses, and realize that person is you.
