 Downtown Los Angeles is the epicenter of cocktail innovation and The Edison proudly continues to serve this community of talented bartenders.  Radio Room brings the best and brightest mixologists from around the world to share their knowledge and talent at one bar, for one night only.

On Tuesday, March 30, Radio Room returns to The Edison with Joseph Brooke (Edison Director of Spirits & Winner of national $100,000.00 Best Bartender Contest) and his guests Don Lee (Momofuku Restaurants, NYC), Simon Ford (Pernod Ricard, London & NYC), Zane Harris (Rob Roy, Seattle), and Giuseppe Gonzalez (Dutch Kills & Painkiller, NYC). Acclaimed for their own unique vision and distinctive drink profiles, each barman brings to The Radio Room menus that include both signature beverages, cocktails created solely for this event, and a specialty beverage featuring our Radio Room sponsor, Pernod Ricard. 

This Radio Room has evolved in a manner that will effectively feature each Mixologist’s cocktail creations and specialty menu.  Each visiting bartender will be stationed in individual serving areas, and will offer ONLY their special drink menus.  Drink tickets for visiting bartenders will be sold to guests at ticket locations or can be bought from servers. This will ensure that each guest enjoys a more intimate experience with each visiting bartender. The Edison staff will serve ALL other cocktails, food and beverages.

Radio Room is noteworthy not only for the stature of the visiting mixologists, but also for the audience that the event draws each month.  Every leading bartender, bar chef, mixologist, bar owner, and nightlife entrepreneur in southern California is certain to arrive for Radio Room.  The forward thinking creativity of each visiting bartender is on the line – and they bring their “A” GAME!  The brainchild of Edison owner Andrew Meieran, Radio Room has become one of the most significant means of spotlighting contemporary cocktail culture in the United States.

Radio Room also features the extraordinary culinary talent of Matre Ecailler, Chef Christophe Happillon.  Chef Happillon presents an exceptionally luxurious oyster experience, “Meroir: A Sense of the Sea.”  The evening’s specials offer a veritable bounty of the sea, including freshly shucked oysters and crab claws. 

Entertainment by The March Fourth Marching Band features 24 talented musicians, including 12 horn players.  (www.marchfourthmarchingband.com). Also featured is the resident Edison DJ, DJ Jonny spinning throughout the evening. 

Radio Room is proud to join forces with our sponsors,
