Ye Coach & Horses To Close After 73 Historic Years

New, 55 comments

The British pub Ye Coach & Horses in Hollywood next to Samuel French Books and Bonhams & Butterfields auction house is to be closed after 73 years. This historic watering hole designed in a classic Britain meets Hollywood style opened in 1937 was popular with British expats in Hollywood including Richard Burton and Alfred Hitchcock. During the 70s it was a favorite hangout of Jim Morrison, and in more recent times it was the haunt of Quentin Tarantino who with Tim Roth wrote scenes for Pulp Fiction on napkins. According to a source, Samuel French Bookstore, which owns the property, is increasing the rent and forcing the bar's closure at the end of the month. Apparently the current owner of the bar Jane Grant, 85, who inherited the bar from her husband Bob, has made poor business decisions and failed to sign a long term lease. New rents are charging around $8,000. A vanishing piece of Hollywood history. [EaterWire]
