Jack Rose's roof-top opened Friday night, I was there at 5pm on Saturday, had some tasty beef sandwiches. Amazing space, though the rooftop doesn't have the amazing liquor selection downstairs has. Bartender told me the main floor won't be open for a few weeks but not sure if that's true.

Any info on why Againn Rockville closed?

Sounds like the concept wasn't resonating there. The Post says the owner may put in a new concept, same location.
