The Pour House, which occupies an historic former granary warehouse in Granary Wharf, will shut on Thursday.

The bar, which models itself on Gin Lane artist William Hogarth's 18th-century campaign to make beer more affordable, made the announcement on its social media accounts.

To honour the artist's work, The Pour House does not sell gin - seen as the 'ruin' of the Georgian poor - on its downstairs bar, and instead has a separate gin bar named after the famous painting.
