Ophelia's Electric Soapbox

1755 Reviews
$30 and under
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.

    Food, atmosphere, and service were wonderful. Our host, Tim, was exceptionally kind and attentive. The live bluegrass band added to the energy of the restaurant and made for a lovely dining experience. I would highly recommend to anyone visiting the area or staying in the hostel next door.

    Waitress was over the top accommodating to one of our business guests who was a little ridiculous (drunk) w/ a great sense of humor! She also spoke with the chef to accommodate a non-salty meal due to medical issues. Music was awesome, it was really enjoyable!

    Great venue to see live music. Staff, drinks and food were all great, but they charge 5% extra for staff tip, which I don’t like. Just charge 5% more and pay your employees more. I guess it turns into a commission type set up, but still annoying.

    We had fun but I made reservations weeks ago and was sat at a table at the very end where we couldn’t even see the screen. Plus there were other tables open. So that was a bit disappointing. Our server was fabulous. I’ve been to Ophelia’s before and I didn’t think the brunch food was nearly as good.

    This was a fun event and I am glad I attended. The food was very good. The French onion bread pudding was outstanding!!!! I wish it was what I ordered ;) My only complaint was the cost for brunch - $65 for 1 person is pretty high when it only included 1 drink. Next time, I will stick just to the food :)

    The concept of Ophelia's is soo cool, however, the food is just not good. We ordered the benedict, and hash, and both needed salt badly. There was really no flavor or anything special about either dishes, and for $20 and up it wasn't worth it. For positives, the atmosphere and service is great as well as the live music.. I just don't know that the mediocre food justifies the cost.

    What can I say? When we went before the pandemic it was awesome. Then our first experience back and my daughters girlfriends’ first experience was not great. The area they had originally seated us in was high back chairs along the stage where used to be booth seating. Then we ordered a small app and brimless mimosas which we ate the app and had 1 and a 1/2 mimosas. Our food came, then ordered an evacuation. We had to wait for our Uber ( since we knew we were having bottomless mimosas) and I stayed to pay since I’m a decent person and didn’t want to diss our server. Well by the time we got an Uber, got home, warmed up our food I was NOT impressed. Instead of just comping the whole meal Ans just letting us tip our server, they expected us to pay for food that we didn’t even have the chance to eat. This was one of my favorite brunch places before. So disappointed.

    The place was fun, so nice to be able to see the music. Server was nice, drinks were decent, but the food made me extremely sick shortly after. I’d still recommend the place, it just was unfortunately not my night with the food there. We’ve had really fun times and good food there in the past.

    Cool place. Food not good. Beans not cooked or super dry in the ropa vieja. About half the amount of food I expected considering the dish was $25. It was worth about $9. Would honest to god like my money back but!! Why I keep expecting good food in Colorado, I don’t know
