The Jones Grand Opening

The hottest new place is the cool rooftop pool in the Power & Light District, The Jones, and we were there to snap the action at their recent grand opening. We saw familiar faces and met new friends as we soaked up the energy of The Jones, sipped drinks from the modern poolside bar and relaxed under luxurious cabanas. The aqua water, the amenities and the awesome altitude blend to make the The Jones the “see and be seen” sensation of the season.
