Le Balcon - The Balcony

We begin the walk tour at Carmen Rupe's Le Balcon - a cabaret nightclub on the corner of Harris and Victoria Streets. Today The Balcony has been replaced by a corner of Wellington City Library. In the early 1970s Dana de Milo worked there as a waitress, and in this recording she recalls some of the entertainment that was on offer.

Follow the walkway up the side of the public library. Keep going until you are looking into the centre of Civic Square. To your right you will see the City Gallery (formerly the public library). To your left you will see the Wellington Town Hall.
