Smash Palace

Material relating to a Transitional Cities project, titled 'Smash Palace'. The project description reads, "A temporary bar on a gap site featuring an ex-Red Bus converted into a bar. There is range of seating, fires in drums, fairy lights and more. Also an odd assortment of various caravans. A bit of a hipster hang out - very cool but chilly in the winter! The owner/operator had a much loved bar, Goodbye Blue Monday, in the Poplar Lane area until the quakes destroyed it. Smash Palace was one of the first temporary bars to open within the CBD. The whole venue has a 'temporary' look: the bar is an old bus, the kitchen is a caravan and the street frontage is realised with scaffoldings".
