Owner-Proprietor Colin Hulbert is a proud Portland Native. He loves the Portland Trail Blazers, rock and roll, good beer, and great food. He grew up in SE Portland and has spent his entire adult life in the service/hospitality industry. Starting as a busser at one of Portland’s longest standing Italian Restaurants, Caro Amico, he worked up to Bar Manager where he stayed for years, learning about craft beer and cocktail service. The dream of starting his own bar/restaurant has always been on his mind. He and his sister, Courtney, have talked about “their bar” for years. Jinx is an actualization of both of their unique visions. It is a culmination of many years clocked behind bars, serving regulars, and having fun in the industry he loves.
Courtney has spent her life immersed in the restaurant industry. Her mother, Carolyn Newsom, and two sisters, opened Buttertoe's Restaurant one year before Courtney was born. She grew up with family recipes and good food. Her own passion for fine dining and a perfect margarita was developed over twelve years working at well known Portland venues. Her experience includes serving, tending bar, and management duties. Courtney returns to the industry after spending years dedicated to her first passion, her family and three children. Courtney's favorite part of owning Jinx is connecting with the neighborhood and establishing positive relationships with customers - but she also keeps an eye on her talented brother / business partner Colin and his high score standing on the Soprano’s, a favorite of Jinx’s five pinball machines.
Steph is a longtime Portland resident. He has spent many years serving at, and managing various Portland institutions. His keen sense of humor and inviting attitude make you instantly feel welcome. Originally from Galveston, TX Steph lived in New Orleans and Austin, TX before migrating west.
