The Jones Assembly, a 20,000 square-foot dining and entertainment destination in downtown Oklahoma City, will open its doors at 901 W. Sheridan in summer 2017. The latest creation of The Social Order Dining Collective, The Jones Assembly pairs outstanding refined regional cuisine from Executive Chef/Partner Brittany Sanger with an innovative approach to live music, establishing a new standard for Oklahoma City’s dining and nightlife.
A 225-seat restaurant with separate downstairs and mezzanine bars and a 1,600-person capacity for live events, The Jones Assembly constitutes an adaptive re-use of two historic facilities that were formerly part of The Fred Jones Manufacturing Company complex. Collaborating with James Boswell Architect of Tulsa, known for the firm’s wildly successful 2003 revitalization of Cain’s Ballroom, principal partners Brian Bogert, Kirk and Fred Hall of Hall Capital, Graham Colton and Sanger created a destination that revitalizes two century-old historic buildings while creating a new cornerstone for the burgeoning West End area of downtown Oklahoma City.
Colton, an acclaimed singer-songwriter and Oklahoma City entrepreneur, said The Jones Assembly, which will regularly host touring acts in the Americana, alternative, contemporary and singer-songwriter genres, checks many of the boxes he looks for in a top-notch music venue, then takes it a step further.
“Honestly, I haven’t played anywhere that compares to this place,” Colton said. “As we were planning The Jones Assembly, I had certain things in the back of my mind that I wanted to see. For instance, we can completely open up both the indoor and outdoor spaces so that it can operate as a mid-sized venue or a large concert space.”
Sanger is an Oklahoma City-born chef who trained at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris. Her refined regional cuisine menu will include house-made biscuits and artisan breads, fried chicken confit, wood-fired pizza and seasonal fish offerings, among other favorites.
As the opening approaches, Bogert said The Jones Assembly will transform Oklahoma City’s summer 2017 and set the stage for an important new tradition for entertainment in the city.
“For everyone involved in this project, this is a moonshot,” Bogert said. “It’s been a long time in the works, and we’re proud to share it with everyone.”
