Papa Hou (Treasure Box) is a performing arts area located within the YMCA. It comes with a large sprung floor, tiered seating, side rooms as well as a licenced bar.
The YMCA is centrally located with many cafes and shops within easy walking distance as well as many new buildings and developments that have arisen as a result of the 2011 earthquake.
YMCA on the corner of Hereford St (left) and Rolleston Ave (right). (My back is to the Botanic Gardens). Bean at the Y Cafe is on the left, who do coffee in the morning. Duo restaurant on Rolleston Ave is under the YMCA (on the right in the picture) and does great coffee from lunch time till late. (But that's "Christchurch late" = 10.30pm)
