Jones Public House is closing

1621 SE Bybee Blvd
get there via trimet

Less than a year after opening, Jones Pub will be serving their last on Friday, December 30, 2005. I'm sorry to see it go. Happy Hour prices will apply all night.

What's coming? The Oaks Bottom Pub, owned by Jerry Fechter (of the New Old Lompoc) and famed publican Jim Parker, late of Concordia Ale House. According to the Oregonian's John Foyston, Parker's "first pub, the Mountain Tap Tavern in Colorado, was named one of America's 10 best beer bars in 1995. Parker will spend most of the time behind the Oaks Bottom bar, a job he loves. He's looking to make it a true neighborhood place that opens early in the morning with good coffee and pastries and continues through the day with a solid menu, 12 taps (half will pour Lompoc beers) and a full bar." Parker and Fechter? Wow! Sellwood, watch out!

Thank goodness Jones' is closing down. Horrific food. We wanted to like the place, the neighborhood needs to step up to a cool public house from the dingy dive bars there...but man we tried Jones' 3 times and all 3 were strikes. Nice folks, horrible costco burgers for $9. Bleck.
