New Hollywood club Ecco Lounge is launching a new weekly dance night next Wednesday called Melodic. The opening party features Andy Caldwell, and Jay-J hits the decks on March 4. Other notable bookings include Ben Watt April 1 -- no fooling. The venue is in the Thirty Mile Zone for sure, so it's interesting to see bonafide dance music at a Cahuenga Corridor spot.
It's also interesting to see that the venue appears to have changed its name (at least in the promotional material I received) from Ecco Ultra Lounge. I had noted here that the "ultra lounge" milieu was a bit cheesy and tired. The venue is probably better for it. Here's a piece I wrote for Entrepreneur magazine's website about Ecco's green aspirations. Here's a danceblogga interview/story about owner Danny B. and the club's opening.
