Would you like a seat with your Scotch?
Jack Rose in Full Bloom
But the lure of old-school spirits is what spurred co-owner Bill Thomas, a veteran of several DC watering holes, including Bourbon, to open the rather intimate Jack Rose. In addition to a roof deck, which was designed to accompany the main floor shenanigans, Thomas and his team will any minute unveil the aptly named Prohibition Bar on the lower level, the perfect place to hide out and really get to tackling those thousand-plus bottles of distilled perfection.
It’s a sin not to order whiskey, especially when half-ounce pours cost as little as $4. Sergi’s favorite? Old Grand Dad 100 Bourbon and Ardbeg Corryvreckan Scotch. Cocktails include classics like the namesake Jack Rose and Bees Knees, and new creations like the Knuckleball and Oh Henry Highball. All cocktails are $13.
