Located near Harlem Place Alley--core of L. Between the two bars you'll find an impressive catalog of drinks -- including a very nice scotch collection -- but why get a martini when you can order several brands of absinthe? This is your dream spot. Perhaps they should do a better job at keeping an eye out for creeps like that! He did this without looking at us. Great place to unwind after work — The Edison is a great place to meet your co-workers, take off your tie, and have a few drinks. Definitely the place to dress up 20s style and go for a few drinks.
Our beautifully restored building at the heart of our State Capital is a representation of our love of Florida and Tallahassee. The place is in the basement of some old building on Broadway and feels like a large, swanky bomb shelter on the inside. They specialize in Japanese whiskey and have a secret cigar patio ideal for drinking the night away. Oh, The Edison - where would downtown even be without you? A wonderful place to hang out with friends, and bring visitors. Environment On a weekday, finding the entrance to The Edison in an alley near 2nd and Main can be like looking for a secret speakeasy, but on the weekends, the line gives it away. Wednesday through Friday is a great deal.
That said, this Arts District distillery is one of the most unique places to drink in Los Angeles. Still the go-to bar downtown — Bouncers here can sometimes be rude regarding the dress code, so be forewarned. He was very eager to see the place and it was happy hr so I figured they might let him in. I don't know how 'happening' or cool is this place inside but just from the service outside, I was pretty sure that I am not going there again. The club is broken up into a number of diverse settings within a brick and concrete framework.
However, the receptionist was exceptionally unfriendly, unaccomodating, and lazy. I would say they are more on the street performer side. The 1910 Higgins Building's original structure remains intact, with many of the historic architectural elements still around. The rest of the night security took care of us when a few patrons had a few to many, so that we may have our privacy! The Edison is open Wednesday through Saturday. So, this set our party of 20 or so in a disdainful mood right off the bat.
We didn't order any appetizers, but the drinks were good as well as strong. Think of it as a living, breathing museum where handcrafted cocktails flow, pretty people mingle, ceilings soar and the attitude remains squarely at the door. Oh, almost forgot--they serve alcohol too. Once the vodka arrived we asked for more redbull, and she charged me for all the additional ones. My fiancee and I love the Edison! The service we received was beyond our expectations and completely gratifying.
I had a drink tab and while the charge went through over the weekend but then disappeared in the middle of the week. Inside, the only thing at street level is the smoking lounge and a couple wing-back chairs in the lobby. The cavernous art-deco speakeasy, with its preserved antique power generators and silent films projected on the walls, has a terrific '20s feel that will doubtlessly leave a lasting impression on first-time patrons. Service is slow for drinks and food. This type of business needs excellent customer service. It took her 45 minutes to get it to us. I love the secret alley entrance.

The common feature is that they're all very well dressed, many in retro 1920s glam attire.
Cool place, rude staff — This is a cool venue with a steampunk theme. The Edison is suppose to be a neighborhood lounge with no pretentious attitude. This place was nice but seemed more for a younger crowd 20's and was a place to drink - not really to eat. All of my guests loved the vibe, an excellent combination of the 1920s and present times. This is one bar you'll want to come back to again and again.
