By Donna Boss I n July 2017 down- town Oklahoma City's West End district welcomed the open- ing of The Jones Assembly. An invention of The Social Order Dining Collective restaurant company, this 20,000-square-foot venue features a unique dining and entertainment destina- tion containing a 225-seat restaurant, separate down- stairs and mezzanine bars and a 1,600-person capacity concert space for live events. The Jones Assembly proj- ect revitalizes two century-old historic buildings that were formerly part of the Fred Jones Manufacturing Co. complex, once the nation's largest authorized recondition- er of Ford Motor Company automotive products. The warehouses sit in the West End district, which had been rundown for about 15 years before the beginning of new development. "We wanted to embrace the renaissance in Oklahoma City and bring a restaurant and nightlife scene no one had ever seen," says Graham Colton, a partner of The Jones Assembly. In 2014, Colton and his partner Brian Bogert teamed up with Fred Jones' grand- sons Kirk and Fred Hall of Hall Capital, an investment firm and owners of the Fred Jones Manufacturing Co. The Hall family also owns the boutique 21c Museum Hotel, near the historic buildings. Together they cre- ated The Jones Assembly. Photo by Madison Rae Photos
