Distillery
The Family Jones Spirit House is a distillery and tasting room featuring crafted spirits and food. 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 Mancinelli's 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.

A++ Was visiting from Chicago, made dinner reservations way ahead of time before visiting, and it was everything i could have hoped for and more! Everything is so delicious, we tried close to it all. Such a cool history. It’s a must!

Terrific place to crash after a hard days labor. What's your food of fancy? They have it. Everything on the menu is top drawer. The server is attentive, pacing your order in a timely manor. I love the cocktails; clever and creative, one is never enough. We travel to eat here from our home south of Longmont, through horrendous evening traffic. That pretty much underlines how much we enjoy coming here.

Cocktails were great. Place is fun. Service was good. Food was below average. Get your pre-dinner cocktail here then go elsewhere for dinner.

We went for New Years Eve, they seemed short staffed but really did a good job of taking care of everyone, food was really good, especially the roasted garlic smoked pear soup.

delicious cocktails (love their Automatic Jones and Atticus Jones) and fantastic food. service lagged just a bit during my meal b/c of a large table bogarting the waiter just as my drink was nearly empty :/ I will always return to this place.

This was our 3rd time having dinner at this restaurant. We loved the first two times but this time the food was not prepared as well and we thought it was less than mediocre.
We went for New Years Eve dinner, anxious to have our good friends try the food and drinks, what a disappointment!
Not sure if we’ll be going back.

Incredible ambiance! Comfortable seating, relaxing and flattering light, and great drinks make this a wonderful gathering place for a group or an intimate date. Portion sizes were a bit smaller (for "family style"), which is the only reason I knocked off a star.

We had two additional members arrive to our night out that exceeded the reservation. The staff accommodated the change and put my mind at ease! The drinks were amazing and the food was above expectations. Amazing service and attention given to our group.

Made reservations to specifically sit at the bar. Jordan was behind the bar and he is a magician with drinks! We have done the tour with him before, which is why we came back. He was super busy but took time to really talk with us and explain the drinks. The two ladies that took over for him behind the bar were just as talkative and informative. Super staff!!

We had the burrata cheese and the olive/veggie mix and both were terrific!

This is one of our favorite places!

The ambiance is incredible - current, relaxing, comfortable. The staff from the host to the bartender to our waitress to the manager were accommodating, helpful, and took great care of us. I"m not much for mixed drinks, but the drinks offered were incredible - try the avocado daiquiri with rum. The food is incredible. A little pricey for small dishes, but well worth it. I highly recommend the artichoke fondue and 48 hour beef...amazing!

We had a lovely experience at The Family Jones. It is the perfect space for a romantic date or a girls night out. We shared the Beef Strog-a-gnocchi (OMG SO GOOD!) and the Fondue... the bourbon soaked croutons are to-die-for. You must try this place! The cocktails were beautiful and instagram worthy! Tasty too ;)

Went for drinks not food. Loved the vibe and the decor. Drinks were creative but not as strong as I have had at other locations. I ordered the Green Tea cocktail and added gin, then the grapefruit drink which I was told was lighter but didn’t think it was going to be that light. Would go again to try other drinks!

Food, Spirits, service, music and ambiance were all fabulous. When they ran out of a certain drink they provided one comparable and it was perfect! I rarely right reviews. It truly was a great experience.

This was perhaps my favorite part of my trip to Denver! We had the opportunity to sit at the bar, and the service and cocktails were amazing! I had the beef strog-a-gnocchi and it was out of this world! The bartender was super friendly, knowledgable, and accommodating. The Automatic Jones was great, their take on a pechuga was fun. So glad we went and any other time I'm in Denver I'll definitely be back!

Excellent on all accounts. Small plate food was excellent. Drinks made with their own spirits were creative and delicious. Fairly small place, so not so noisy that you couldn’t have a nice visit. Our server, Jason, was very attentive and helpful. Winner! And I bought three bottles of their house distilled spirits to take home.

Food was horrible and cold.

Service was poor.

However our hostess was super sweet and helped out with serving our table. The restaurant comped our meal and our drinks which was the only plus on the night.
