Unconventional bar and nightclub constructed from recycled urban materials and re-purposed shipping containers
May 26th, 2014
One of the most popular bars in the buzzing Kemang nightlife district, 365 Eco Bar has been attracting a hip young crowd since it opened back in 2009. Offering a genuinely original and innovative concept – both from a design perspective- and in terms of the bar and music program- Eco Bar stands out from the plethora of nightspots nearby. Taking a low-key, laid back approach to nightlife, Eco Bar attracts a solid following with its compelling combination of strong, well-priced drinks, good honest food, and a nightly music program featuring both live bands and DJs playing mostly RnB, Hop Hop and House- and at levels where conversation is still possible.
In addition to its attractive bar and music programs, Eco Bar also legitimately claims solid eco-friendly credentials. The seemingly nondescript construction, standing unfashionably on a concrete slab in a car parking lot, is actually a cleverly crafted assemblage of re-purposed shipping containers, and recycled urban materials and furniture, decorated with murals splashed onto the concrete and steel surfaces by local artists. The compact space includes a large rectangular bar, with seating around the room on everything from refurbished sofas to cushion-topped plastic drink crates. Comfortable booth seating along an exterior timber-decked section provides a relaxed open-air option for dining and conversations.
Eco Bar can accommodate up to 200 guests- table bookings are recommended for popular nights after 9 pm.
The Eco Bar team are constantly updating the music and drinks programs- enticing their regular customers with themed nights every day of the week (except Sundays), an exciting roster of both live local bands and talented DJs, and attractive drinks promotions. Check the Eco Bar Facebook Page for all the latest themed night and special events information.

Specialties of the drinks list include the signature house-made vodka infusions-eg pineapple white rum, and strawberry bourbon ; ice-chilled classic cocktails (including Cosmopolitan, Mojito, Long Island Iced Tea, and Lychee Martini) by the bottle and good for 4 serves; and creative signature cocktail concoctions. The well stocked bar also serves up a variety of shots, beers and premium spirits. Well-priced bottle promotions are a standout feature at Eco Bar– particularly the “double bottle promo” on Friday and Saturday nights.
