Noticed any new neon along Melrose lately? Particularly in that stretch between Wilton and Western, where the traffic backs up during rush hour? Perhaps you have, which would mean you’ve clued into the new drinking and music-listening den The Edmon.
Tucked tidily inside the iconic Hollywood Historic Hotel, the beautifully arranged Edmon is meant to be a place for dinner, drinking, and a live show from time to time. Offered as a throwback palace to the gilded age, the space comes complete with a tall back bar, chandeliers, and plus seating around dark wood tables.
As for food and drink, the place has a full license to serve booze and a menu full of throwback favorites. Expect caesar salads, braised short ribs, hearty steaks and classic cocktails galore. The young Yelp page for the place describes it as "a Modern American restaurant in a beautiful 1920’s Art Deco space, combining fine dining with unique cocktails and live music." So there you go.
As of now, The Edmon place seems to be keeping daily hours from 6 p.m. to midnight, with an extension to 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights.
