Distillery
Highlands
About the restaurant
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 reserved two large tables for a group of 14. We had a wonderful evening! The ambiance was peaceful and relaxing, just what a group of holistic health practitioners like. The food was yummy and beautifully presented. The wine was tasty. Both of the new owners stopped at our table to check in. It felt very warm and inviting. I highly recommend using Sweet Heart Winery for your next date night, ladies night, or gathering.

The food was excellent. Pizza crust/dough was truly outstanding (as were the toppings, but the crust really set it apart). The staff was very polite and helpful, made some good suggestions to help us with our order. We were only vacationing in Colorado/Denver, but this place would definitely be a regular for us if we lived here.

Everything was delicious, well executed north african inspired french cuisine. Even more impressive and unique is that the chef was the only person running the place, and service was nicely paced for someone without any backup. Will be back with friends.
