The article reports on the advent of new eco-clubs that are combining sustainable design and energy-saving technology with high-octane music, across the globe. For example, Tel Aviv's centenary, Ganna 71 has opened atop the Gan Ha'ir shopping complex in the center of downtown. The club that has been made soundproof and energy-efficient has a bar made from salvaged metal. A similar club in London, England is favorite of celebrities like Jade Jagger.
