    I can't find an entertainment schedule for The Edison. Their website just says " entertainment nightly at 9:30" does anyone know where or if they post it?

    Currently here. Band started at 9:30, dancers were supposed to be out at 10...nothing yet.

    Edit: a juggler preformed and now the band is back. Looks like the dancers are on certain days?

    Can you ask the bartender if they have the Brasserie Cantillon beer?

    We walked in after 10pm last Saturday and weren't charged a cover. Good thing though, we left by 10:30pm because it was overcrowded, no place to sit and no one to ask us if we wanted drinks. I wasn't about to try to get through one of the crowded bars. Jellyrolls is my kinda place anyway.

    So just regular restaurant before 9:30? Even on a Friday? We were planning on 7 PM dinner there, but not sure if it's worth it without any entertainment.

    Would love to try Jellyrolls this upcoming trip in May as my "youngest" child is finally 21 and we can all go in. Can you tell me a little about Jellyrolls? Is the dueling pianos every night and around what time? We will be staying at Dolphin so it would be easier than DS (although we do have one night penciled in for DS).

    I was really excited about Edison until I read more about it. We would be going on a Sunday and it didn't sound like there would be that much going on if anything at dinner time. We ended up booking dinner at Boatworks (liked the menu better anyway). We plan to shop after dinner then hit atleast one bar, maybe Edison but Jock Lindsay's and Raglan Road look fun too.

    Yes, sort of. It still has a lot of atmosphere. And the cartoons are playing on the walls. Truthfully, we enjoyed it without the entertainment more than with. We were there from about 8:00 till 11:00 one night, so saw it all, both with and without. The band is fun but it's just music. Then the burlesque dancer comes out between sets.

    I watched Tim Trackers recent youtube on The Edison. It becomes a 21 and up nightclub, entertainment experience after 9:30pm and 10pm, depends on day of the week. Also, if you come in after that time, there is a $10 cover charge. Also looks like they have dress code too.

    We also currently have a reservation for a Sunday night, but we aren't locked in to it just yet. Everything seems kind of mixed with the reviews, so we are giving it more time for them to figure out what they are exactly before we decide to keep it or not.

    As for JRs, we have had some great nights there and a few not so great, but the not so great nights have more to do with the crowd of obnoxious and inappropriate convention guests. I think the doors open at 7:30 and the music starts at 8. We usually go for dinner in the area before heading over. We try to get there at around 8:30 so that we can get a table and open up a tab. Once IllumiNations ends it can get very crowded there. There are 2 sets of pianists and they switch back and forth every 45-60 minutes. What they play depends on the crowd since a lot of what they play are requests. You right requests on a napkin and the higher the tip, the quicker they play it. If they can't play it, and they noticed who requested it, they will ask if there is something else you want them to play (we requested "Angry Young Man" by Billy Joel on 2 separate occasions, sort of as a tease to see if they could pull it off and both times they looked at us, laughed and asked if there was a different Billy Joel song). It's a good time and can get very addicting sitting there, whether you request or not. They give you baskets of popcorn.
