Bao Brewhouse is a multi-concept restaurant, the first floor is known as the Tap Room, in which you will find service via QR codes, WALK-IN'S ONLY, Chinese street food inspired fare and a local rotating draft list.
The second floor is known as our Tea Room, there you will find a more traditional dining experience with a twist. The Tea Room menu and ambiance lend to more curated and intimate affair, with a vast tea selection ranging from herbal to puer, a thoughtfully selected wine list with a tea-centric cocktail program to satisfy even the most adventurous of palates. The Tea room has a DJ every Tuesday, Thursday - Saturday giving the room a not-so-stuffy feeling.

**Please note** Bao Brewhouse holds two separate flights of stairs to enter each of the two dining rooms. The building does NOT have an elevator. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

    The vibe was really energetic and fun. The staff were all very nice, respectful, and welcoming. The food was spectacular! I would highly recommend the soup dumplings, they were so delicious.

    We went for the AYCE Soup Dumplings on Tuesdays. Unfortunately, they were out of the soup dumplings and also out of the backup regular pork dumplings by the time of our reservation. The kobe beef dumplings were good, just not what we had in mind when scheduling the reservation. Overall, the place was nice and the food we had was good. I'll definitely get an earlier reservation next time to be sure we get the xao long bao.

    Great food and superb service. You'll be paying downtown prices though, so happy hour is a great option. Walking distance to the DCPA and Larimer shopping. I'd go back.

    We went for the dumpling special. We waited 20 minutes for a table with a reservation. The dumplings took awhile, which is a good sign. They were piping hot and flavorful. Service was poor - with not many tables even filled. Couldn’t get water or our refills on food. The subsequent dumplings were not hot. The $30 price tag is too high for the dumplings.

    Way too loud upstairs. Service was sub par for the waiter, but the people running the food were hustling.

    Good place, bad experience. Usually enjoy the tea room, but had a bad time this round. Food was slow and cold when it finally did arrive. We were seated at a very dark table. Veeery expensive food for what it is. Additionally, the server charged an automatic 20% gratuity for "Party over 6+" when we only had 5 people in our party. This angered us more out of principal than anything, but still not a very nice thing to do to a group who you maybe expect wont tip 20%. Not cool Matthew. The host who sat us was wonderful. Very nice and helpful. Take this as you will, but maybe just avoid for a bit. They will hopefully figure things out.
