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.

Amazing staff, ambiance and food. It was a low key brunch on a hectic Easter Sunday with the Rockies in town. Cannot praise the Ophelia's team enough, wonderful crew.

Got to the restaurant at our reservation time, but had to wait for a seat inside. Host was not very welcoming.

Menu items were eclectic. We had an 11:30am appointment and they had already 86ed Sangria.

Food was pretty good, except the eggs in the benedict were undercooked. Portion size was small.

Excessively noisy.

Very cool layout. Seating at the counter was tight, but once sitting it was a good view. Kinda loud for trying to talk to each other. Food was pretty good, drinks were good and value was alright. I should have been more drunk, my experience was my own fault.

1st time in Denver. This was highly recommended by a Yoga instructor from "Yoga High".
Awesome place, ambience, food, & entertainment. Intering history too! Our server was great & tentative.
We were seated as requested, in a very great location to view the musicians!
Definitely would love to come back to Denver & explore more, and come back here. Nice plant base menu options too.

We were there for brunch, which is a very popular time. (I have also been there for multiple concerts, & enjoyed their yummy cocktails.) We were packed in & service / the kitchen was a bit slow (although the staff was very nice), but the food was great, we enjoyed the live music and enjoyed the hopping atmosphere. This is a solid Denver venue & food spot!

We sat upstairs the music was difficult to hear but most people wanted to visit which was ok with me. My wife ordered breakfast eggs over medium but they came very much underdone...soupy. Our wait person was very attentive. We plan on going to Ophelia's again maybe on April 5 when the Rockies have opening day.

Food was good as usual but had to wait on refills on the bottomless mimosas and table wasn’t ready for 15 minutes after arriving with a reservation. Regardless service was still pretty good and the place never disappoints.

As always, we were once again leaving Ophelia's Electric Soapbox with bellies full of fabulous food and drink! I have never been disappointed with what has come from the kitchen. The cocktails are unique and immensely enjoyed. I recommended it for a girls night out and half of the group had never been to Ophelia's. They LOVED it!
