about us

The idea of Common Spirits was born out of our (Jami and Ryan Hawkins) minds in 2013.  Jami, a service industry veteran, while working as a bartender at Pizzeria Venturi had a thought that she might want to open a place of her own with classic cocktails with fresh ingredients.  We decided to investigate what it would take to accomplish this.  After a lot of hard work and dedication, as well as a ton of support from our family, friends, and community (including a successful crowdfunding campaign), we opened Common Spirits in June 2016.

Our building originally housed a bank, and still contains the original safe, dated XXXX.  All of the remodeling work and furniture inside was handcrafted by our own blood, sweat and tears.

We hope you’ll join us soon!
