Contemporary American
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.

My wife and I had reservations for the Amy Winehouse tribute. We also made reservations for pre-show dinner. We were seated at a rail counter with partial view of the stage. Excellent food and service.

We had brunch on Sunday. The band was The Patient Zeros. The music was very loud, as expected. But it was fun and the food was fantastic! Our service was great and I will go next time I’m in Denver.

Food was pre-made so you couldn't do any modifications to fit dietary preferences - or maybe our server didn't want to. Music ambiance is fantastic.

Super hip, super fun, music venue. Went for brunch. The food was good and reasonably priced, but go for the ambiance and the music. The staff were all very friendly and the Bloody Mary's were good. What more can one ask?

We had a wonderful brunch for my husband's birthday and then went on to the Rockies game. Excellent service, very attentive with the bottomless mimosas and the food was excellent. Really top notch all around. I highly recommend Ophelias for bluegrass brunch and intend to go for an evening show too.

I've been here many times and it has gotten progressively worse. My order was wrong 3 times and our service was horrible. It wasn't even busy I don't know why our server was so bad and the cooks couldn't get it right.

Got the window seat and had a little sun on me so that made me happy to start. Other than that it’s a dark spot.

Enjoyed the fish special, which I can’t remember what it was, and the Service was on spot.

They typically never read my requests in the comments section prior to eating there, but they FINALLY did. Happy with experience, and the fact they listened to prior requests. Dinner is MUCH better than brunch.

We came here at an off time (about 6pm on a Sunday) with a couple of kids and friends from out of town. The live music was great (they gave us earplugs for the kids, a very nice touch since the kids wanted them), the atmosphere is fantastic, the service was surprisingly fantastic, and the food was really impressive--two notches above what we would expect. Like the lamb gyro with shaved pieces of actual lamb, not the pressed stuff. Fantastically caramelized plantains, etc. We will definitely come again.

Great venue with outstanding food. The service was not nearly as good as we expected. We were there to have dinner and see a show. Our food server didn't seem to really know what was in cocktails and was lack luster in his service. The front desk, after telling us they'd bring us wristbands for the show, never stopped by so we had to go back and pick them up ourselves. Given the cost and caliber of the food and beverages, I would have expected much better service. Great venue for a fun evening just don't expect them to take good care of you.

The ambiance of Ophelia's Electric Soapbox is very cool - definitely not for families, since it is a former brothel and peepshow, but vintage and unique. We ate out on the patio, which was partially shaded and lovely for brunch - I think the interior, while extremely cool for dinner and drinks, would be too dark for brunch. The portions are quite small for the amount that you pay - my partner was hungry a couple hours later - but the food was delicious. I had the creme brûlée skillet french toast, and I'm still thinking about it.

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.
