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.

My mom is in town, so I decided to try a new restaurant. I cannot begin to explain how much I love The Family Jones Spirit House!! At first, I thought the ambiance was my favorite. The cute blue booths and dim lighting was so cute and everything I wanted. Then the food and drinks came, and I was even more impressed. Needless to say, I will definitely be back and highly recommend this to anyone in the area!!!!!

*The Colorado Sour, Because I Said So, artichoke fondue, and Pork Tenderloin were the best items I’ve tried thus far!*

My friend and I met up at The Family Jones for dinner and drinks. The ambience is terrific, and although it’s short on a lot of seating, that creates an intimate and lively vibe. While not inexpensive, the craft cocktails are incredible and the food was tasty. Service is top notch.

Great food, okay service. It was pretty busy on a Saturday night. Loved the blue velvet couches. The drinks menu was somewhat unfamiliar to this group of winos so be prepared to have their distillery drinks instead. They were good for the most part after a few fits and starts and ruling out the sweeter drinks. Will definitely return.

What a special experience! My husband and I had a date night here on a Saturday. The service from start to finish was impeccable. Everyone was so attentive and knowledgeable. The drinks are stunning and quite tasty! We were able to linger and enjoy sharing plates of most everything. The meat and cheese trays were unique and absolutely scrumptious! The stroganocchi was heaven. Perfectly cooked gnocchi in a stroganoff sauce. The artichoke fondue was my husband’s favorite. The artichoke is the vessel for the fondue and it made the dish so special! We also shared the upside down pork. It was salty, sweet perfection! It’s a special place if you’re trying to impress someone, without the pretentious vibe. Very chill! Just lovely!

Family Jones has recently become our go-to spot for Date Night and visitors from out of town alike. Whether we sit at the bar, lounge or grab a table, we always get great service. I definitely recommend getting a reservation in advance if you're planning on a peak time/day as it is crazy busy. The cocktails never disappoint and the happy hour eats are delicious. We'll be back again and again.

The Family Jones Spirit House was a great dining experience. The interior décor alone is impressive. The first thing you see is the German distillery on the second floor. The seating is comfortable and the noise level is not noticeable. The mixed drink menu has great variety. I would recommend the Take you Medicine. Then there is the food. Great presentation and the flavors are to die for. I had the Tenderloin. Give this place a try.

The service was terrible. The tables around us who ordered after we did continually received their food and drinks before we did. It felt like we weren't treated as a priority because we weren't their "usual" clientele. The food was good as well as the drinks but I will not be dining here again. Additionally the seating lounge area felt very small and as if they were trying to fit as many tables as possible in a very tight space.

Nice comfortable atmosphere. Only spirits are served here because it is a distillery. Love the buffalo meat loaf and the cod is also a good dish. As a real dark chocolate lover the brownie dumplings were wonderful.

My husband and I went for Restaurant Week on Sat night. We have been there before and after our first course came, my husband said " Remind me why we don't come here more often.." My response, "Because we're stupid?". The food is really great, the place is cool... We need to come more often and we will make a point of it. The portions are smaller but that just allows you to try different things and not leave stuffed and uncomfortable! It's distillery so they expect you to eat a bit and have a few drinks . The food is super delicious, inspired and what you would get at nice restaurant not "bar food". We'll be back and soon!!

This was my second time here. Spirits are always wonderful. Rock & Rye is awesome and I’m not a whiskey person. The food is a literal playground of flavors. What seems like it shouldn’t go together has a wonderful way of complimenting each other.

A wonderful experience overall. Sat at the bar, our favorite spot at any good restaurant. Service was excellent from the bartenders. The food was fantastic and perfectly portioned, and drinks were great. An appetizer and two entrees was plenty. The chicken liver mousse appetizer was some of the best I've had in a while; highly recommended. Although it's possible this isn't a regular feature as it was restaurant week. The 48 hour beef entree was delicious. I would recommend Family Jones to anyone looking for something special in Denver.

Absolutely delicious food. 4 of us enjoyed 5 dishes total and could not decide which was the yummiest. Drinks are wonderful, of course. Since this place feels more like a fine dining venue than a tasting room, I hope they will add some wine options to accompany the food.
