Newest addition to Downtown Disney

Postby Tink » Sat Jun 20, 2015 12:36 pm

Fabled LA bar The Edison to join the new lineup of bars and restaurants in Downtown Disney.

This new restaurant is scheduled to open in 2016.

The Disney Springs is a dining, entertainment, and nightlife complex inside the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando.
It is getting another new restaurant. The Los Angeles-based Patina Restaurant Group will open "The Edison" next year.
It will have a theme that is based on a 1920s-period electric company. The restaurant will reflect an exuberant era of invention and imagination. Which I guess means not now ?

Their industrial gothic use of space will have 35-foot ceilings & a number of themed areas like: The Tesla Lounge, The Radio Room and The Patent Office.

This restaurant is more edgy than other Disney Springs venues and is definitely not child friendly.

This Orlando location for The Edison will be similar to its sister location in Los Angeles. The restaurant menu will serve classic American food & craft cocktails. Not sure what the difference is between "craft cocktails" and "cocktails". Just a marketing name maybe ? Will they serve "craft food" instead of "food" ?

There will be live music, cabaret dances, contortionists, palm readers, and music DJs for entertainment.
The Edison is edgier than other venues at Disney Springs and definitely not child friendly. It appears to be part of an effort to draw in an older (and perhaps childless) crowd. Is this what Walt Disney was planning for?
