The Loft, Wellington’s newest top secret place

The Loft, Wellington’s newest top secret place, will be the cat’s meow

A new top secret place is opening above, almost kitty-cornered to Meow. We’d like to think it’ll be the cat’s meow, but you’ll need to find out for yourself when it officially opens on Sunday, 28 September.

The Loft seems like a suitable name. It’s off the ground floor like a loft. It’s attic-like in spaciousness (actually it’s way bigger), although it’s missing the cobwebs and old wooden beams that a tall person would most likely hit their head on.

Of course, The Loft won’t be top secret for long. Once it offically opens for business, you’ll find out what this new place is all about. Up until then, you’re welcome to have a little wander round the outside of the business at 1 Edward Street, downtown Wellington (at the back of the new Captial Market on Willis Street). Or you might even fancy pushing on the big door to its premises, see if the door will budge, and truck up the big stairs for a wander — but that might be too cheeky?

If wandering’s not your style, you could look for clues on their Facebook page: Facebook/TheLoftNZ. You might even enter their competitions which will run up to their opening date on that Sunday, 28 September.

Whatever you do, you should know that The Loft will be Wellington’s coolest new place for tomcats, alley cats, domestic cats — all kinds of cats!

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
