About the 900 Block
The 900 block of Massachusetts Street is full of history, Lawrence traditions, and modern-day favorites. Weaver’s Department Store is the longest operating department store west of the Mississippi. The Mad Greek has been delighting locals with great food since the 1980’s, and The Toy Store has been bringing smiles to the town since 1975. There’s no shortage of live music in the 900 block. Between the Jazzhaus, Jackpot Saloon, and The Replay Lounge, there’s always a live show going on. Newer dining and shopping venues such as Mass Street Soda and Ramen Bowls are quickly becoming top spots for locals and visitors.
