I love the decor, the music and the atmosphere. It's all amazing. We had a reservation on a Saturday which meant a min spend of $50pp, but that was easy done. We shared some light bites and they were all delicious + the cocktails were awesome. The shows were nice to watch too. It was a great way to catch... More

Super cool venue--swanky and fun at the same time with live entertainment, delicious food, and great drinks. The perfect place for your 20s themed event. Mistress The Edison Edison fries Tesla fries Calamari Truffle Mac and cheese All very good. All worth trying at least once. ;)

Guests are seated on cozy couches, chic poufs, or Victorian era chairs, and may listen to live music, watch silent movies, or chat while being served delicious drinks. The food selection is varied, but not vast enough as to be overwhelming, and the bite-sized dishes are the perfect size to nibble on. The black, gold, and maroon color scheme combined... More

Came here for a true LA bar experience. It's a very posh bar with absolutely stunning views of a restored factory. Pianos, beautiful dim lighting with restored mechanical equipment: totally unique! Book a table at their latest seating time of 9 pm: each person must spend a minimum of $50 to book a table which is fine if you plan... More

Great place for an upscale evening. I appreciated the enforcement of the dress code. It's nice to go somewhere with nicely dressed people. The service was outstanding and its a very secure environment. The drinks and food were very good. I would recommend reserving a table. The minimums for food and beverage are reasonable.

I attended an international conference and we went to The Edison for our conference dinner. It's worth a visit just to experience the place alone. They also served us some great food and exotic drinks. I'm not sure whether they are open as a normal restaurant though - it looks more like a bar or a club.

Thank Kropell

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
