Hun­dreds hit the dance floor to farewell ‘The Zoo’

Wangaratta Chronicle - - News -

MAS­SIVE crowds turned out on Satur­day night to farewell one of Wan­garatta’s most iconic nightspots at the Al­bion Ho­tel.

Af­fec­tion­ately called The Zoo, the ho­tel’s night­club at­tracted rev­ellers and ro­man­tics over four decades but sadly closed its doors at the week­end for the last time.

The ho­tel will go up for sale and is not ex­pected to re-open as a night­club.

It was a crowd of all ages at the week­end and de­spite long queues and wait­ing times lo­cal po­lice re­ported the crowd was well be­haved.

Wan­garatta Chron­i­cle jour­nal­ist Si­mone Ker­win was there to soak up the at­mos­phere and re­visit a venue that made a pro­found im­pact on her life.
