The Edison

Built in a century-old power plant Downtown LA - LA's first power plant, in fact - this retro-chic bar evokes legendary LA watering holes like the Cocoanut Grove and Ciro's. In celebration of an era of invention and imagination, The Edison boasts hand-crafted cocktails, lush décor, good music, and quirky old movies projected onto the wall. You won't want to miss Lucent Dossier Vaudeville Cirque on Wednesday nights, a magical vaudeville performance infused with circus shenanigans.
