Jonesing for Jonesy’s All-American Libations
Tucked away on an unassuming street that skirts along downtown Denver is the small, quaint, eclectic gastro-pub commonly known among Denver-ites in the know as Jonesy’s. With over 30 Colorado craft beers, Jonesy’s is a step above your normal pub, catering to those who enjoy their brews locally made. Jonesy’s wines adhere to the same ‘local’ theme, even offering their very own White Wine blend “Sit, Stay,” made by Boulder’s Bookcliff Vineyards especially for Jonesy’s.
Jonesy’s makes drinking fine Colorado wines and beer affordable and convenient with a happy hour that might have you singing praises to Colorado’s brewers and vintners, if only Jonesy’s had a karaoke night. Happy hour includes $5 select wines by the glass, $4 select Colorado craft beer, in addition to $4 select cocktails, and $2 off house specialty cocktails.
Of course, considering Jonesy’s EatBar is an All-American locale, they serve up classic, All-American floats so you can relive one of your childhood pleasures, adult-style.
Each float is prepared with a heaping scoop of Denver’s own Sweet Action Ice Cream with flavors that include such classic American childhood favorites as “Fluffernutter,” the perfect blend of peanut butter and marshmallow creme. Jonesy’s has a habit of combining drink and food into one, also offering a play on the mock-Polynesian dish known as “Rumaki,” a creative blend of bacon wrapped water chestnuts and a house-made brown sugar whiskey glaze.
Set in a small, cozy, and comfortable atmosphere, Jonesy’s is a friendly drinking spot for those who enjoy the wines and brews of Colorado. Formally referred to as a gastro-pub, Jonesy’s EatBar combines good eats and fine drink under one roof, sometimes even mixing the two into one dish that will satisfy your thirst and your hunger all at once. For these reasons and more, it is no wonder Jonesy’s is a well-known secret that continues to spread.
Jonesy’s is located at 400 E. 20th Ave. on the corner of Logan & 20th Ave. Happy Hour is 3-6 p.m. every day.
