Jake’s Bar and Grill in Rockwood is under new ownership.

Antonio Vitolo, the new owner, appeared before the Rockwood Beer Board on Tuesday.

The board approved his application for a beer permit unanimously.

Vitolo lives in Kingston. He passed a state background check, and Beer Board members didn’t voice any concerns about his application before voting to approve it.

“Looks good to me,” Beer Board Chairman Denny Cole said.

Jake’s is located in the Shoppes of Walden Ridge shopping center on North Gateway Avenue.

The previous beer permittee at that location was Shayla Hall.

Jake’s employees apparently have no worries about their jobs.

“Are you going to continue to keep the same help?” Cole asked Vitolo.

“Yes, sir,” Vitolo responded.
