Eco-friendly club Ecco debuts Wednesday

L.A.’s first “green” bar, Ecco Ultra Lounge will debut Wednesday night featuring the musical stylings of beloved San Francisco House DJ Miguel Migs. A private opening will take place on Tuesday.

Formerly Tokio, Ecco will feature small plates such as a Jerusalem artichoke salad with goat cheese and entrees such as Guinness-braised beef with mashed potatoes. The full menu can be seen here, although the kitchen won’t officially open until late November, when the Hollywood bar celebrates its grand opening with a full schedule of events. This week’s slate of parties is a “teaser, with the bar only 85% done,” says co-owner and longtime promoter Danny B.

Several promoters who have been inside the space report that the club looks stunning, with an all-black interior accented by LED lighting. If you’re out and about in Hollywood on Halloween, swing by for the soft launch but be forewarned that getting in may be difficult without connections. A safer bet might be Wednesday night’s party, which is open to the public. Tickets are $20 at the door.

Bonus: For those arriving via the ecologically correct Prius hybrid, the valet is free (at least the bar hyped the free-valet angle in early press materials ... but we’re not sure if they will honor this during the soft-launch phase). See pictures of Ecco here.
