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.

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.

This place is awesome on every level! Being a long time "restaurant guy," I am always looking for the cool, hip, off the beaten path restaurant, to try and boy, does this place deliver, The exterior of the restaurant very modern and the interior is awesome, with blue comfortable banquette seating, crocheted hanging spheres through out and even crochet covering the distillery tanks! The AGM , Jamie was fantastic working the room and making us feel like guests in her home. Great vibe about her and she made some awesome recommendations. And our server Mas was wonderful too and really "fit" into what they are trying to do. Food is mostly small plates and we tried nearly everything and it was wonderful! Their house made liquors are top notch as well and we even saved room for dessert. Could go on forever, but this place is a MUST TRY if you are in the Denver area! Thanks again, Jamie & Mas!

Yes, I would recommend family Jones spirit house to very wealthy friends. But with the caveat that the portions were small, the drinks were fairly weak in alcoholic content and it all was very overpriced!
$110 + tip for 6 drinks and 3 very small apps. Not worth it to me for the swanky atmosphere.

I gave it a 4/5 stars. The happy hour price points made it worth our stay. Solid options on that section of the menu. The cocktail drinks ordered were good. I tried both bourbons with housemade ginger beer. Good taste, more ginger forward than the bourbon..🤭. We will be back. Outside of HH pricing some of the dishes may be on the smaller side for the price charged. Not a biggie, but some may feel it could be an issue. Bring on the short rib someday?!?
