NEW BETHESDA ROOFTOP RESTAURANT TO BE CALLED URBAN HEIGHTS
The rooftop was previously occupied by ROOF. While Urban Heights' menu and cuisine have not yet been announced publicly, the name does play up the hopes one originally had for the rooftop, as a nightlife destination in the rapidly-transforming Woodmont Triangle neighborhood. A fizzled "Nighttime Economy" initiative by Montgomery County instead left Roof and several other nightspots shuttered, and found popular late-night hangout Barnes and Noble closing its doors an hour earlier most nights.
With the success of Mussel Bar's cross of casual atmosphere with serious cuisine, Wiedmaier might just be the man to make this rooftop the place to be and be seen.
