The Palace on Ellis 1 Ellis Street

The Palace on Ellis 1 Ellis Street
The sign cost $45 to make. The idea for the name came from the pub in the movie, Once were Warriors. “The guys were so proud of their effort that when the sign was first erected, they also nailed up a replica yellow AA sign on the lamp post on the corner. 'But we got dobbed in and had to take it down' ... a lack of resource consent was apparently to blame.” [ODT 14.05.99] “To the current flatties in The Palace On Ellis - I was one of the 'originals' in 1999. Would be great to see the sign restored to it's former glory.” [Steven Young]
