The Jones Assembly is sure to be the most popular hotspot in Oklahoma City for food, drinks and music. Located along historic Film Row in Downtown Oklahoma City, The Jones Assembly needs to be at the top of your to-do list if you live in the city or if you’re planning a visit. I was lucky enough to receive an invite to their soft opening last weekend where we (Scott and I) were able to try everything our little hearts desired. And boy did we.
The minute we walked in we were blown away by the size of the space (it’s huge!) and the way it was designed. Not a stone was left unturned. We immediately opted to sit at the bar towards the front because, well, we were ready for a drink. As soon as we sat down we were greeted by two of the kindest bartenders who told us so much about the history of the place.
While The Jones Assembly is clearly brand new, the history of the renovated warehouse it resides in dates back to the early 1900s when it was home to the Fred Jones Manufacturing Company. This company, pioneered by Fred Jones himself, was the largest Ford Motor company-authorized reconditioner of automotive products in the nation. You can see nods to these industrial roots throughout the space, from the lights hanging over the bar to vintage grills adorning the walls.
After we finished eating, our bartenders (bless them) encouraged us to go upstairs and visit another bar that served even more drinks that weren’t offered downstairs. But before we got there, we stumbled upon a slightly hidden, slightly romantic area with five big booths that overlooked the main dining area and stage. I’m telling you, every inch of this place is incredible.
But my favorite part, if I had to narrow it down to one, was the outside area just to the left of the upstairs bar. The minute we walked outside I felt like we were in Palm Springs. And even though it was pretty warm outside, the patio was comfortable and breezy.
