CUL­TURE VUL­TURE

West of 105 Magazine - - Culture & Events -

Ophe­lia's Elec­tric Soapbox is a self-de­scribed gas­tro brothel, culi­nary em­po­rium and mu­si­cal hab­er­dash­ery. Food is good and in­dul­gent (ev­ery­thing was good; the brothel fried chicken and the plan­tains were mem­o­rable) and the vibe is eclec­tic.

Open­ing the day af­ter Pro­hi­bi­tion was re­pealed in 1933, the Ox­ford Ho­tel's Cruise Room bar is one of Den­ver's must-visit wa­ter­ing holes. Modeled af­ter a bar on the Queen Mary and shaped like a wine bot­tle, it's noted for its mar­ti­nis.

Den­ver's an­tique row, while not ex­clu­sively an­tique shops, has a range of out­lets, so whether you're look­ing for rare Vic­to­rian fur­ni­ture (Bruhns Auc­tion Gallery) or Bake­lite jew­elry (MK De­signs) you can find it here.
