Plus Size Wedding Dress

Slim women can wear on their wedding day any kind of wedding dress: long, short, strapless or not. On the other side, ladies that have some extra weight must be very careful with what they wear on that special day. They must always be careful to select a dress that hides the fat and highlights their qualities. These kinds of dresses are usually called plus size wedding dresses.

"Stepping back in time"

Great place to go for a drink. Lines not too long to get in. Would recommend for a date night.

9021Pho in West Hollywood; Free Drink at The Edison

WEST HOLLYWOOD—Angelenos have taken to chef Kimmy Tang's causal Vietnamese-Cali hybrid 9021Pho, and a new restaurant is headed to unit 105 on Sunset in that small shopping complex at the corner of Hayworth. Interior demo begins next week with the intent to launch the third week of January. Next up 9021Pho will open in Westwood Village following by Wilshire/Normandie. [EaterWire]


"Warp through time" as you descend back-alley stairs into this "stunning" "Steampunk" "speakeasy" where "flapper girls" serve absinthe cocktails (and other "stellar" craft concoctions) while "smoldering" burlesque dancers and "old-timey" musicians perform for a "hip, pretty" crowd; you assuredly "pay for the ambiance" (tables are $50 a head on weekends), but it's "worth the money" to lounge in...

The Edison, an Art Deco–inspired cocktail spot housed in a revamped power plant, is what the Machine Age might have been if there were better couches back then. You can sit inside an old boiler, hang out between Frankenstein-lab-like gauges and generally feel like Edison himself amid inventive nooks and crannies. It's cavernous (in the sense that it's both big and subterranean) but there are...

Cocktails are King Says Zagat's 2013 Nightlife Survey; Downtown and Hollywood Still Hot

Late yesterday, Zagat released its annual Nightlife Survey. Nearly 3,000 Angelenos contributed to the results, which touched on more than 500 different venues. Though this is an annual guide, locals seemed to favor the bars and clubs that have stuck around longer than a year. Top Atmosphere went to Chateau Marmont, a West Hollywood fixture, with Shuttters at the Beach and Nokia's L.A. Live...

For being an iconic DTLA spot, I was thoroughly let down by service and quality of food and entertainment.

We stopped by on a Saturday evening by chance as we were in town. There was a $10 cover...

Okay, if you're into fancy drinks and beautiful buildings this place works. If you're into drinking and getting ratchet this isn't the place. It's kind of classy. White people dancing doing the tw...

Subterranean Nightclub with History

Average Rating

Originally an Edison powerplant converted into a unique nightclub. No windows and might feel claustrophobic since it's subterranean but lighting and gothic-like decor are attention catching. Mechanical artifacts retained as part of fixtures which is neat. I went on a company sponsored party. Staff are...

Come see the place, have a drink and leave

An interesting room to see, yet the crowd and some of the staff were off-putting. What do I mean? While standing in line to get a drink as service to our table was a bit slow, a patron behind me put his mouth to my...

Cool place

My husband, a few friends and I stopped in on a Saturday night after reading good reviews on this place. I agree. The place is really neat. Felt like I was transported to the Great Gatsby era. The decor is fun to look at, drinks...

The Edison lights up LA's night life as clubbers mingle through its several lounges, stage with spacious dance floor, game room, and private party room. This new, downtown night club was built in the basement of LA's first private power plant, and it has incorporated many of the historical elements found there. The menu is full of drinks and simple snack foods.

A rather upscale venue, The Edison offers a trendy venue to party all night. With foot-tapping music, chilled beverages and live bands, it ensures complete entertainment. Aptly named, for it is located inside a former power plant, it sports remnants of the Industrial Gothic age in its decor, that transports one to that era. A local hangout place, tourists are also seen partying hard and...

Tips about this business (3)

Look Good

The bar is actually located down Harlem Place Alley. Look for the bouncer outside.

Know Before You Go

A strict dress code prohibits athletic wear and sneakers (regardless of the brand or cost). Collared shirts are preferred for men; women should dress accordingly.

The Extras

Good news, buttheads: Smoking is allowed in the front covered patio, where chairs and tables line up behind quasi-industrial bars.
