Foursquare Tips

  • Take a step back into a great period of American history, order an absinthe fairy, and get lost in the theme of the place.
  • Staff Tip! Lisa W (PR): Go to the Edison Thursday evenings for Burlesque night
  • Go on Thursdays from 5-7pm for a 35cent cocktail :)
  • Very cool, 18th century boiler room that serves absynthe. -Akiko Cook, Launch My Line
  • They have nonalcoholic cocktails!
  • By far the best bar in L.A.!
  • Every so often Miss Dakota performs burlesque show with Big Willies Burlesque ... She also teaches & conducts burlesque bachelorette parties
  • Sure -- you'll dress up for a classy evening in this historic hotspot, but the stiff drinks and live music on Wednesday nights will have you loosening your tie or letting down your hair.
  • Guys, wear nice shoes! My friend could not get in because he wore Converse.
  • Dress up 20's style.
  • Try out one of their wonderful selections of #absinthe from France #downtownLA
  • It is my most favorite bar, when it comes for cocktail and ambience the first name on my mind, is the Edison only...I'm sure next time I am throwing a huge classy party there, its a worth place!
  • Have yet to have a good experience here. It's run by douchebags for douchebags. If you're not a douchebag, I'd suggest you find somewhere else to hang.
  • 35c cocktail Wed, Thu 5-7pm. $1 cocktail Fri 5-7
  • Heard this place was cool! Want to see for myself!! : )
  • I hate this place. Fuckin' pretentious! Even on weekdays. Please don't support pretentious fucks.
  • Spend $30+ on cocktails and not even get buzzed. WEAK DRINKS!
  • Rooms vary in themes. Leather club chairs, lush draperies & dramatic iron candelabras combine with factory steel in this steampunk alternate reality. For cocktails try The Mistress ($14).
  • Ridiculous. I have a dress on and they wouldn't let me in with Uggs on. My friend has jeans and ugly tennis shoes on. Really?! Horrible.
  • Check out the Happy Hour the 35-cent martini special paired with classic movies on the wall is like getting whisked back to the 20s in your DeLorean.
