Mixer @ The Edison

Join us for a fun-filled Mixer at The Edison!

Many other groups are attending!

GET THERE BEFORE 9:00 TO AVOID LINES!

Our venue is guaranteed to be fun, casual and the perfect backdrop for getting to know other professionals in an atmosphere where you can enjoy the ease of conversation with a new acquaintance.

A blend of the past, present and future, The Edison inspires the romance of such legendary nightspots as The Cocoanut Grove and Ciro’s while reminding us that we live in a city of dreams and at a time of great invention.

Follow a cascading art deco chandelier down a flight of stairs to the Edison, a turn-of-the-century boiler room turned swanky nightlife Mecca. Located in the basement of the historic Higgins Building, the Edison features original boiler room fixtures like enormous metal machinery mixed with sleek leather couches and glass tabletops. The result manages to evoke the grit of the Industrial Revolution with a dose of 20s-era glamour.

By creating living history, Andrew Meieran’s award winning design celebrates an era of invention and imagination –the blending of science, art and industry. The space retains many of its architectural and mechanical artifacts from its history as Downtown LA’s first private power plant. The design combines styles ranging from Art Nouveau to Industrial Gothic, in order to create a lavish Industrial Cathedral – a space that needs to be experienced more than just seen.

Experience LA’s legendary nightlife in one of the world’s most unique and visionary spaces. The Edison has a sense of "industrial opulence" mixed with a trendy vibe, and offers the right mix for anyone looking for a great night out, whatever their style.

The Edison is the perfect place to come out and relax and have a drink, while mingling and getting to know new people! Its okay to come by yourself…you won’t be by yourself for very long!

Food and drink is at your own expense.

      I didn't make this and I'm a guy, but I ran into a similar issue on my last trip to San Francisco. I went to a Speakeasy bar, solo, there was a line to even get a drink at this tiny "Library"...so­mehow made it through striking up chat with people. It takes practice. :-)

      Sometimes it's easier to go solo because once you get over that awkwardness you realize you can pick who you want to chat with and move on and actually meet interesting people (or not!) instead of just chatting up the friends you showed up with the whole time.

    Is it weird to go to these mixers alone?

    February 7, 2013

      No , after a few times of going alone , you meet new people and don't feel alone anymore ! It might feel weird at first though .
