To argue the Incandescent light bulb as a “new” innovation in bars and restaurants, would have surely had Thomas Edison turning in his grave. Back in 1878, the great man saw the great potential of the filament light bulb, but perhaps never expected to see them hanging from many a London restaurant roof or protruding from the exposed brick wall of your local bar and club.
