About House of Commons
The House of Commons opened in February 2005 and is located on Platte Street just north of 15th Street in lower downtown Denver. A short stroll from the Platte river, The House of Commons takes its name from nearby Commons Park and its inspiration from the tearooms of London. Tea is served daily from 10 am until 5:30 pm with Lunch and Afternoon Tea served from 11 am until 5pm.
All food is prepared fresh on the premises with soup, sandwiches, salads, pastries and Afternoon tea also available to be taken home if desired. The tea selection is varied with many varieties from which to choose and each is available for purchase by the ounce. The teas are sourced from around the world with an emphasis on quality, freshness, and fair pricing.
The House of Commons is a lovely place to hold baby or bridal showers, special parties, business events — and catering is available for events outside the tearoom so you can bring a taste of England to any location.
About the Owner
Jessica was born in London but grew up in a little town on the coast of the Irish Sea in Lancashire, which is in the north of England. (Therefore, she's a Lancashire Lass!) Her earliest memories are of drinking tea with her mother and grandmother.
Jessica wanted to create a place that reminded her of home and would provide a calm and peaceful environment for her guests; a place both for celebrations and quiet reflection - and that's exactly what she did!
Her favorite teas are Yorkshire Gold and Scottish Breakfast.
