4Ophelia's Electric Soapbox
Downtown Denver’s Brothel-Turned-Restaurant
Since Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox opened in LoDo back in April there’s been a lot of talk. about it since then. It’s the 3rd addition to Denver from Justin Cucci, chef-owner of two other well-known, popular restaurants: Linger and Root Down. The location’s history also certainly adds to the allure: a brothel that opened in 1889, then turned into an adult bookstore, then turned into a restaurant. And reminders of its history remain in the risqué, retro decor of Ophelia’s.
It’s impossible to convey online how cool the space itself is. You have to see it for yourself. From the downstairs stage with old cassette players on the wall, to the bar built entirely of mini Jägermeister bottles, the decadent lounge chairs, the retro adult movie posters, the edison lightbulbs, the menus in viewfinders — everything has been carefully thought-out.
