The Ecru cafe and bar is a unique concept based in Japan. A micro-cafe, it not only serves drinks and treats, it also acts as a mini theater to outside passersby. With its strategic location and large, glazed windows, outsiders can glimpse at the activities within the small space.

Designed by architect firm Atelier Huge, the Ecru cafe promotes intimacy despite showcasing its frequenters. Small yet organized, it features wooden tables and a dropped ceiling that utilizes every bit of space in the cafe.
