Downtown's lounge-life evolution continues in a historically refurbished, turn-of-the-century boiler room.
With the opening of Andrew Meieran's new industrial cathedral, Downtown is once again the place to be in Los Angeles. The Edison presents a marriage of refined industrial architecture and art deco chic - a world class lounge that retains the mechanical artifacts from its history as downtown LA's first private power plant. The grand staircase spectacularly descends into the depths of the.. historic Higgins Building. The Edison revitalizes the art of the classic, hand crafted cocktail with house specialties designed just for the space old-school bourbons luxuriously transformed with a house made lavender & honey infusion. A small, upscale menu of food and drinks. The Edison offers a respectful nod to LA's famed nightlife that haunts Ciros & Coconut Grove and continues to punctuate billiards. You can also enjoy an early evening retro juke box for nightly Cocktail Hours.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
This is one of the coolest bars in LA. It's an old power generating station and the bar is in the basement where the old boilers were. It looks like a set from Batman with a Gotham City art deco feel. It's an eclectic crowd with professionals from the financial district and tourists and some interesting locals.
