8000 Sq. Ft. Gastrobrothel features Vegetable Forward, Globally-Inspired Dishes and a Live Music Venue ‘Electric Soapbox.’

Music schedule and ticket purchases can be found at opheliasdenver.com

Ophelia’s has taken many forms: located in the historic 1894-era Victorian Airedale building, it was a brothel, turned peep show, turned adult video library.
We serve as a restaurant, bar, and live music venue, with a boudoir-style
décor that honors the building’s past; and Ophelia, the muse. Continuing the Edible Beats tradition of delicious, responsibly-sourced food, the upscale, gastrobrothel-inspired menu will include fresh, craveable takes on flatbread
pizza, small plates, burgers, and shareable charcuterie boards.

This place was so fun!!! Food was really good, fun drinks, and the dueling pianos were fantastic! We took our 17 and 22 year old kids, and we all had so much fun.

For the ticket price, I thought there would be a little more than a dj and a girl dancing. However, the music selection was good for dancing and that was what we came to do. It's a really unique place and I plan to return asap.

We went for brunch and it was amazing! The creme brûlée French toast was to die for, the blood orange bottomless mimosas were perfect and the BBQ pork eggs Benedict was fantastic. Listening to live music at brunch was the icing on the cake. I would beat a path here every weekend to try everything on the menu if I lived here!

Historically this has been my favorite Denver restaurant. The decor is cool, the staff is amazing, very energetic vibe. But on our recent visit I felt insulted by the quality of the food and angry that we spent so much money on it. The cornbread was precooked and barely reheated. Just dry and stale. The hummus was runny and weird. The vegetables with it were rubbery and not fresh. The peppers were greasy and boring. The sliders were cold and bland. Highly recommend the salted caramel but it wasn’t enough to leave me satisfied. That kitchen needs higher standards.

This restaurant was much more than we expected. The food was fantastic and original. Drinks were great especially the Prisoner wine. The service amazing. Everything we ordered was exceptional. With the orders being small plates the entire table was sharing interesting food as it was delivered throughout the meal. What a fun place but also a delicious place for a meal.

Ophelia's once again blew me out of the water. This is one of my go-to brunch spots, I love the energy and the Bottomless Blood Orange Mimosa's. I was surprised with a breakfast burrito special, that had amazing flavor and wonderful presentation on a wood board with a spicy ranchero sauce. 10/10 Will always recommend to family & friends.

It was a belated birthday meet up for my friend as I was out of town at the time and our waitress could not have been any more of a kill joy if she tried. What makes the visit that much more sour is the you’re made to feel you have to tip - despite having received subpar service.

Ambiance and music were great as usual but this was my 5th visiting the restaurant, and my 5th unique meal from the menu and I think it’s safe to say the food just isn’t great, no matter the meal. Great place for a date to get drinks, maybe skip the food though.

Was our first time there. Food and atmosphere were great. Our server was quick and very pleasant. The "open mike" entertainment was poor at best..... but then you never know who will perform on an "open mike" night so that's not really the fault of the establishment. Still, we were disappointed. Next time we go it will be on a night there is a specific performer we know we like.

Our food was amazing at Ophelia’s - very flavorful! However the service was mediocre – I understand it was extremely busy but I felt our server didn’t check in with us until we were well into our meal. Loved the music and the atmosphere – just not the location of our seats. The table was wobbly and the bench was extremely uncomfortable.

Wonderful time at Ophelia's. The music was perfect. Make reservations ahead of time for a great seat! Our food was slow, our friend who arrived after we ordered got his food before us and so we waited nearly an hour for the food. Bottomless mimosa's luckily kept us well entertained.

We made last minute reservations for Mother's Day. What a fantastic evening we had filled with great food and music. My mom and siblings were going into this venture somewhat negatively but they were sure glad they went when it was all said and done. I have been here before but you now have new fans. Thanks for turning a last minute panic into a raving success.

We wanted something different for Mother's Day. Ophelia's is fun! Cute place, solid service. My husband and daughter's sandwiches were fantastic, mine was just fair. I had a great, assertive cocktail. Most restaurants with music are way too loud but we enjoyed Rascal Martinez and we were still able to talk to each other. Our 15 yo really enjoyed watching the band from seating one level above the stage. I'd go again!
