Urban HotSpot – The Edison: Downtown LA

There is no doubt that the Edison is one of the most dynamic bars in all of Southern California. Previously downtown LA’s first private power plant, the Edison provides an industrial rich atmosphere in a world class lounge. As you enter and go down the long grand staircase you get the sense of how large Edison really is. The vast space has plenty of seating, two long bars, and 1920’s music accompanied by silent film that is projected onto the walls. Old industrial equipment that is now used for decoration really adds to Edison’s strong character. I would highly recommend checking out this spot if you find yourself in the Downtown LA area. It’s great place for large parties and dates. The Edison Website The Edison review on Yelp 108 W 2nd St Los Angeles, CA 90012 (213) 613-0000
