The Edison is definitely one of the most excellent and classy places anyone could find in Downtown LA. Hidden away in alley off of Main and 2nd street, the entrance easily imitates that of 1920's 'speak-easy.' I have come here a few times and each time the lure and atmosphere of the bar has an up beat downtown happening vibe. Once you enter, walk down two stories worth of stairs into a basement full of 'Edison' power plants/furnishes, you see the dress and style of the staff - let alone the actual walls and notice the attention to detail that the place presents to its customers. There is a dress code and they do not allow much flexibility, so check out the website for details. Also, some wear the attire of the 1920-1930's fashions (skirts, suspenders, hats, and jackets). So far I have arrived early enough to not pay a cover charge, but they really do not need a cover charge when you see the price of their drinks and or food. I paid 17 bucks for their Kobe beef sliders - which are pretty good, but are on the pricey side with their drinks. Additionally, there is a little fairy looking women who walks around with a cart full of two tastes of absinthe - tasty and about 8 bucks a shot. Drinks range from 6 to 144 dollar bottles. And no sitting is allowed unless reserved or you pay 25$ per a person on food or drinks. So the place is pricey and a bit upscale. Additionally, they occasionally have live entertainment, such as live upbeat jazz and or exotic adult dancing. I can continue writing a long drawn out review, detailing this place, but I don't want to get anyone's hopes up - everyone really needs to check this place out and feel the vibe and enjoy the place for what it is - a quality kick back bar and lounge in Downtown LA.

2 for 1 car bombs from 10 pm to 11 pm at 3rd Floor = worst fcking next day workday ever. Well, I shouldn't blame it all on Third Floor since Galway Hooker and a half dozen shots of whiskey had it's hand in my current nausea as well. I just like to blame Third Floor because somehow, as an Asian, you always end up there at one point in the night or another, whether you wanted to or not. The inevitability is annoying. The inevitability of you getting far drunker than you had planned is also annoying. And unless you go for the Tuesday happy hour ($18 all you can drink beer and all you can eat greasy fried korean food) or the car bomb special (2 for $10) its just another Ktown bar with overpriced drinks and too many yellow people. Brb. Feel another dry heave coming on...

I think it is the best chinese restaurant in the Boston area. For starter they use only natural products, no msg there! The place is open on week ends until 2 am and they have a very beutiful sushi bar where you can sit for an intimate conversation and soft playing jazz music. I also suggest you go there for lunch, they have very nice specials and of course lower prices.
