Can someone verify the Edison happy hour deal?

I've moved to the westside and I haven't been to the Edison in a while. I've got people visiting next month and would love to do a Friday happy hour at the Edison. But I'd hate to drive all that way and find out that it's not as good as it used to be.

On Fridays, is it still a 35 cent drink and then 40% off every cocktail? I've heard that it might only be well drinks now.

Has anyone tried it in 2012?

    Yeah, I've also heard the service has gone downhill. They used to be really friendly. I wanted to show off how cool the place was though. But if Friday happy hour is only a welcome drink now (and not any discounts on the other drinks), then it's really not worth it.

    Thanks guys!

      The Edison is a cool place. Unfortunately drinks are $14. Yikes!

      Watch out going on Fridays. The last couple times we went the place was empty at happy hour but every table was reserved. The waitress deigned to let us sit at one of their precious tables, warning us we'd have to move if someone came. I asked when the tables were reserved for and she said for the evening crowd. All we wanted was a couple of drinks and little snack. I thought it was absurd they would reserve every table for the shows at 8 when it was only 5pm. What a joke.

        Save the gas money and just go to Copa D'Oro's happy hour - $5 cocktails from 5:30-8:00 pm.

          It's just 1 $.35 "martini" per person. Nothing after.

            You're speaking of their "Centennial Celebration" deal, which was always limited to one drink per customer afaik. Read about it here: http://thirstyinla.com/2010/06/23/the... and the fact that they still list it on their website makes me believe it's still running, but as to the exact details if I were you I'd call them and get up to date information from someone down there.
