  • 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.
  • 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.
  • One of my favorite bars in LA. If you like Boardwalk Empire you must visit this bootlegger type bar underground at LA's first power plant built in 1910, make sure to get an absinth from the fairy!
  • Old-fashion cocktails and vibe. Absinthe fairy + cart! So cool. Make sure to read their dress code and adhere to it! If going with a group, it's best to call ahead and make a reservation.
  • My favorite spot in DTLA, good vibe. Definitely enjoy the Friday crowd better than the Saturday crowd. Food is definitely worth trying.
