Ivy's Birdcage

Popular club above Taylor Square on Oxford Street which featured drag shows. It was the second venue opened by entrepreneur, Ivy Richter. Her first was at Bondi Junction called Chez Ivy's. Richter described the venue:

...it was $2 to go in. You bought your own grog. And so we had, in one corner was the band, round the other were these lovely round tables and chairs, there was a seat built in all the way along and a dance floor...And then you'd go up to the next floor. And that's when we had all the birdcages up and the stage up one end....

The club closed down after two fires.
