About Us

North Philly newcomer Masters Bar & Restaurant arrives on the Temple University scene to deliver an elevated yet unpretentious culinary experience, and a vibe that can only be characterized as both sophisticated and playful. Open seven days a week, Masters welcomes guests both in daylight and for nightlife, serving lunch, dinner, and cocktails after dark. The carefully constructed menu– designed by veteran chef and owner Waylon Nelson– offers fresh, locally-sourced ingredients, bright flavors and inventive takes on your favorite recipes, alongside a modern cocktail menu and extensive beer and wine program.

Masters Bar & Restaurant stands two stories tall, and fuses industrial chic design elements with natural materials and ample seating. The dining room and bar occupy the first floor, and upstairs you will find The Study, a luxury lounge space with an energetic, comfortable and warm ambiance. The acoustic landscape is enhanced by a well-balanced sound system, offering an eclectic mix of sounds, spanning genres and decades to produce the perfect party soundtrack.

Gracious hospitality reigns, and Masters Bar & Restaurant is destined to become the premier spot for afternoon to after-hours socializing.
