Sustainable event venue and repurposed materials at Joy-Nostalg Manila (Originally featured in Accor’s E-Communique March 2019 issue).
The Joy-Nostalg Hotel & Suites Manila recently opened a pop-up bar and rooftop event space – The Roof. The Roof design concept focuses on sustainability and the space is made of upcycled and repurposed material – old barrels turned into functional cocktail tables, hanging planters serve as drop lights, an old bathtub turned into a king sized drink cooler, old water pipes and shower heads refashioned into lamps. Also located at The Roof, is a private room transformed into a green space, which is very much lacking in Manila. This greenhouse’s walls are made of recycled styrofoam materials, coated with cement and sculpted into a brick wall. The overall design is themed around plant life and plans include tabletop potted herbs, a hanging garden and a fishpond. The venue caters to corporates and groups looking for a more relaxed, communal experience for hosting functions or celebrations.
Th Roof is open Mondays to Fridays from 5:30 PM onwards but can also be booked for special functions and celebrations.
