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.

The food was spectacular! We ordered several appetizers, entrees, and dessert. Everything was delicious!! The handcrafted drinks were fantastic. We liked the vodka so much we purchased a bottle to bring back to Texas. So glad we found this restaurant!! We’ll be back next trip to Denver.

Our first visit - amazing food - inventive cocktails - great service. We arrived during happy hour and loved the smoked salmon and eggplant toast. Juniper gin and tonic was refreshing and well presented. Open Sesame cocktail with jalapeno liqueur was fantastic. For dinner, the duck confit was exceptional. Portions are smaller, which I like, fun to share! Loved the wall of glass, bringing the light in, making for a pleasant dining experience. Will definitely return!

Jones House never disappoints. Great cocktails, original as well as applying their own twist to classics. The arichoke fondue is our favorite. The seared tuna was a smart and well done.

Everything was exceptional. Food, drinks, service. The place was packed with others waiting by the door so it was loud but the space still felt cozy and intimate because I could hear my date, my server, and myself WHILE the music was also on. The sound design, in this really interesting space, was fantastic.

Think "high end brew pub". This place is cutting edge, different experience. All locally made spirits, the logical extension of the popular craft breweries that populate Colorado. Very unique cocktails, and even the standard favorites (Gin and Tonic) have their own special twist. Six of us spent the evening celebrating a birthday. We started with a flight of the spirits, and we each had a couple of the specialty mixed drinks. We had a couple of rounds of the appetizers, every one of them was unique and delicious. We also split 4 large plates between us. Wait staff was attentive and friendly, and obviously enjoyed talking about the drinks and menu items. We will definitely be back.

We really liked the atmosphere of the space, trendy yet cozy. The small plates we tried were all delicious, but perhaps were a bit too small? This is a distillery and all the cocktails are made with in-house ingredients. Overall it was a great evening.

I checked out the menu to see what should I get before I came to the restaurant. I saw that people ordered 48 hour beef, so I gave it a try. Now I knew why they ordered it. It was really good! I came with a couple of friends and they loved it too.

We loved the interior decor, well-priced (and delicious) food, and creative drink menu. The service was pretty iffy... we were served a couple wrong appetizers, the waiter had to return multiple times to re-ask drink orders, and then we had to track him down to ask for the check. Definitely worth returning based on the excellent food and ambiance. Hopefully the service issues were just a fluke.

Decent food, a bit over priced if you’re going outside happy hour times.... but worth it for the ambiance and great service that comes with it! Unique twist and flavors in each dish. Tapas style, so you get the benefit of trying more items off the menu

The Family Jones has never disappointed me or my belly. The food is top notch, the service is on point, and even though they generally seat parties of two or less in the (newly updated) lounge area up front, they honored my birthday dinner request by giving my girlfriend and I a booth. Which we both greatly appreciated.

The in house spirits are fantastic, and the Thief In the Garden is my recommended Cocktail. To me it went fantastic with the dishes with the 48 hr beef.

If you are going to go, treat yourself to one of everything. It’s ALL fantastic. Especially the Artichoke Fondue.

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.
