The Cahuenga corridor/crawl night spot formerly known as Tokio Lounge is undergoing a complete rennovation and being transformed into Ecco. Using natural and environmentally friendly materials and products, Ecco is calling itself "Hollywood's first eco-friendly lounge."

Expected to open in July, the new lounge will feature an organic menu, eco-friendly cement (waste materials added to pack cement), an LED lighting system, waterless urinals and air pressure toilets. Power for the club will be supplied by the LA DWP's Green Power resources.

"Entourage" star Adrian Grenier will be there to document the whole reconstruction. Ecco will be featured on Grenier's new show, Alter-Eco which will air on Discovery Channel's new network, Planet Green.

Owned by longtime promoter Danny B, David Stratten, Sean Muniz and Rob Roedel, Ecco will also offer free valet to those of you hitting the town in your hybrids.

Other eco-friendly nightclubs across the country include San Francisco's Temple SF and New York's Greenhouse.
