YMCA on the corner of Hereford St (left) and Rolleston Ave (right). (My back is to the Botanic Gardens). Robert Harris 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)
Front entrance of the YMCA (my back is to the campervan in previous picture)
Back entrance of the YMCA from their car park.
Front desk in the foyer of YMCA. Facing the desk like this - accommodation is on your right and Papa Hou is down the corridor to your left.
Looking down the corridor to Papa Hou from the reception desk, (see, they even have a sign near the ceiling). Also notice the vending machines.
Walk down the corridor to the base of the stairs and on your right you'll see the toilets, water fountain and entrance to some change rooms which are shared with the YMCA gym. We have also hired studios upstairs to be our change rooms, but these are the only toilets.
Head up the stairs to Papa Hou.
Inside Papa Hou from the door way.
Looking from other end. Beautiful looking dance floor, huh?! The high curtains are hiding a balcony area which we will have open and available for use.
There is a licensed bar that will be in operation! This is on the same level as Papa Hou, entrance on the other side of the landing from the Papa Hou door.
