Masters at Temple U: A bar with a study hall

Masters at Temple U: A bar with a study hall

0 comments

Temple's campus is creeping ever farther west and east of Broad Street, and the rowhouses in the nearby blocks are teeming with students.

What was for many years a decrepit, stucco-faced warehouse on Carlisle Street just south of Oxford, basically around the corner from the Pearl movie theater, has been turned into Masters

Masters (1535 N. Carlisle St., 215-787-9933), in development for more than a year, opens July 11. It becomes effectively only the fourth Temple bar (after Draught Horse Pub, Pub Webb, and Maxi's).

The first floor is pure college bar: 20 seats at the bar, plus table seating, in a vaguely industrial-looking room with multiple TVs and a cherry red bar wall.

The second floor contains what owner Waylon Nelson (backed by Danny Govberg, Joe Byrne and Robert Beggs) calls The Study, a lounge with comfy, almost coffeehouse-like seating for afternoons and early evenings. There's a second 20-seat bar plus table seating up there, too, as well as a "step-and-repeat" - one of those branded backdrops used for photos.

Menu is here. Hours are seven days, lunchtime through late night.
