Very cool design and smooth atmosphere in this place. Old electricity plant with artsy projections. Great cocktails and burlesque show. On the edge of downtown where you might dont want stroll to far in the wrong direction (i.e heading towards Los angeles street).

I attended a corporate special event here while in LA. It is simply amazing! There are so many facets to the decor, nooks and crannies where people can meet for conversation, a great dance floor and raised bandstand and a fast, friendly wait staff. I would love to return to this place.

I was in awe as I walked down the stairs into the open restaurant/bar. The decor is beautiful, with little nooks and crannies everywhere, all done in a 20's or 30's theme...luxurious...I can't describe how beautiful it is...the food was great and I just wish I had gone when the crowds were there, each time I have been it has been quiet however I hear it goes off and gets packed. The silent movies on the wall are fantastic...just beautiful...BEAUTIFUL!

We dropped in for a few drinks during happy hour on a Thursday. We initially had a hard time finding the entrance, a little off the main street. The bartender made my martinis like an artist and we enjoyed the silent movies being shown on the wall. It was fun & would definitely return.

Opening in 2007, The Edison is a nightclub/restaurant/bar built in the space of the first power plant in Los Angeles. The homage to it's history is everywhere you look. After navigating the almost always present velvet rope line outside, you walk down stairs into a lair of liquor straight out of the '20s and '30s. The space is a genius mix of intimate little nooks where lovers retreat to wide open rooms where hipsters try to out hipster each other. The drinks are descent in very generous glasses, the food is comfortable and varied from sushi to German pretzels. But the atmosphere alone is worth the price of admission.
