Disney Springs — the dining, entertainment, and nightlife complex inside the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Flor. — is getting yet another restaurant. According to a press release, Los Angeles-based Patina Restaurant Group will open The Edison next year. With a theme that centers around a "1920s-period electric company," the restaurant will ‘'recall an exuberant era of invention and imagination." The "industrial gothic" space will have 35-foot ceilings and a number of themed areas like "The Tesla Lounge," "The Radio Room," and "The Patent Office."

The Edison is a bit saucier than other venues at Disney Springs and definitely not child friendly.

Eater LA notes that The Edison in Florida will be quite similar to its sister location in Los Angeles. As for the menu, the restaurant will serve classic American food and craft cocktails. For entertainment, there will be live music, cabaret performances, contortionists, palm readers, and DJs. The Edison is a bit saucier 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. Eater has reached out to Disney World for more details.

Disney Springs is rapidly growing. In addition to The Edison, the Patina Restaurant Group is also opening a two-story pan-Asian concept with acclaimed chef Masaharu Morimoto. The restaurant will serve dishes like dim sum and is slated to open this year. A restaurant called The Boathouse — which features a nautical theme and serves a $115 steak — opened in Disney Springs in April.
