Distillery
The Family Jones Spirit House is a distillery and tasting room featuring crafted spirits and bites. It emphasizes the relationship between distiller, chef, bartender and guest, with a focus on hospitality that makes it a gathering place where all feel at home. Nestled in the space at 3245 Osage St., The Family Jones Distillery occupies the former Mancinellis Market building two doors from Root Down. Designed and built by tres birds workshop, the space pairs industrial elements with rich wood details. The roof was lifted to add a second-floor mezzanine where distillery operations are now perched above a sunken, curvilinear, concrete bar. Guests enter the space through a large, square, wooden door made from reclaimed, on-site materials. Inside, they are met with low-slung seating, deep blue booths and soft lighting. Two-story wooden louvers flank the Osage Street glass facade, offering passive temperature and lighting control, while drawing attention to the well-lit copper still.

    I can’t even begin to explain how wonderful Family Jones is. If you’re looking for something intimate, connected, laid back, sophisticated, and delicious, you can check every one of those boxes twice here. Could not possibly be more in love with their spirits and the overall spirit of the location. Are 10 stars possible? I’d give them 11.

    The hummus is amazing! The music was a little too loud for normal conversations, but overall it’s a great place for snacks and drinks. I would also recommend The Hylands drink.

    Love The Family Jones. They don’t have a full dinner menu anymore so we went next door to Root Down for a meal after cocktails and a charcuterie board. TFJ’s cocktails are top notch though. Highly recommend.

    The host tonight was incredibly rude from the time we walked in. We had a reservation and we were planning on staying longer as our server told us there was not a wait tonight. The hostess came and kick us out telling us “nothing personal but we have 3 parties waiting.” I would suggest getting the staff on the same page as you have people willing to stay and spend money and then someone coming by saying to leave. The host had poor customer service and I won’t be returning.

    Service, food and drinks were fabulous. They had live music and it was so loud we couldn’t hear one another talk. I love live music, but felt it overwhelmed the night given we weren’t at a concert.

    Apparently they are having Covid related issues with food procurement, which they didn’t really apologize for… really said this is how it is. It is a tough time for restaurants, we understand, but it would’ve been nice to have a little bit of notice about that or a bit more understanding. They had no print option for their menu only the scan and I struggle with those types of menus. Most places will give you a print copy option if you ask. Their specialty cocktails were not fantastic but they made a wonderful Moscow mule and even though it wasn’t in a copper mug, it was delicious. i’m vegetarian and the person I was with ate meat so I asked if they could separate it on the charcuterie platter which was one of the only food options available. He said of course that’s how it is separated and then it did not come separated. I’d probably consider going here more for drinks or apps rather than actual dinner☃️

    The cocktails were incredible! I don't normally drink liquor, and especially shy away from whiskey, but I had 2 of their blackberry sour cocktails, which are made with whiskey. The fall charcuterie board was also tremendous.

    My buddy and I were in town for a football game and I had booked FJSH for some post game food and drinks. It seemed to be a very popular place - parking was a little problematic due to multiple businesses all in this area. Really like the ambiance, we had great service and the drinks that we had were outstanding. We ordered the meat and cheese charcuterie board, and that’s where we came ip short. We were informed that there was a new chef and that it was a little different. One of the meats was pretty much all fat and I was unable to even cut it with knife and fork. There was some type of cucumber with it. Luckily I hate cucumbers so I didn’t touch it, but my buddy did and nearly gagged - described it as tasting spoiled. One of the other meats was pretty ordinary, but the dried sausage and prosciutto were very good. The bread was also really good. Overall, I’d go back (again the drinks were really good) and hopefully they’ll have some changes menu-wise by then.

    Very underwhelming experience. It makes it seem like they have a full menu when you are making “dinner reservations” - don’t be fooled. It’s just a few appetizers and they were out of half of them. They were also “sold out” of the cocktail I wanted as well. I think you should be better prepared having enough ingredients if all you basically sell are cocktails. Was just really disappointed in the whole experience. Positive side was the building and decor are great.
