Make like a tree and put down roots….
With urban centres taking a firm foothold beyond the city limits, there has been a slew of new bars and even clubs opening up in the boondocks to cater for these suburban-locked masses.Â So what makes Ecoba stand out? Far from being an environmentally-themed bar where you’ll only be drinking organic wheat-based barley brews with folks who don’t shave or shower, the ECO in Ecoba stands for Eat, Chill and Ogle.
Projecting an eco-friendly appearance, a structural nest provides the bar’s focal point while the use of pale woods and steel make the place seem open and airy. Outside within the shadow of PJ Trade Centre’s brutalist exterior, al fresco seating and brightly hued beanbags make the most of the tended lawn and landscaped trees. It’s just too bad that Ecoba couldn’t come up with a name that included the letter D because Drinking is as much a part of Ecoba’s social fabric as the furniture is the erm, furniture.
