Patrons are bidding farewell to the Gaithersburg location of Union Jack’s restaurant and bar. The company recently announced on its facebook page that it would be closing the its Gaithersburg location and sole location in Montgomery County.

The pub-style restaurant that coined itself a British hybrid of sorts posted on its facebook page that it would no longer be operating the Rio Lakefront location,

“With great sadness and unavoidable regret, it is time to say goodbye to our home here at the Rio Lakefront. As of Monday, June 1st we will no longer reside at the area's only true oasis. We would like to also take this opportunity to thank our beautiful and loyal guests, consistent, persistent, relentless and dedicated staff, and of course the Rio entity for allowing us the ability to present Union Jack's, and all its offerings, to Gaithersburg MD. It is they who embraced the opportunity for us to offer the very best entertainment available, from Local to National Acts, Game Watch HQ, Chamber support, Reunions, Private and Social gatherings, Fundraisers and just about every other type of Event under the sun, along with the thousands of orders of Fish & Chips, Pints of Guinness and of course, smiles on the faces of all ever present. Thank you Gaithersburg for your immeasurable support over 6 fabulous, unforgettable years.”

The company had a location in downtown Bethesda before opening in Gaithersburg, doing its part to usher in a nightlife scene in that part of Montgomery County.

The restaurant’s announcement is the latest in a growing list of businesses that have announced closings in Montgomery County, some in part impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown.
