EaterLA is reporting that Ye Coach & Horses pub on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood is set to close its doors after 73 years. Something about a lease dispute with next door neighbor and building owner Samuel French Bookstore. At least the owners weren’t evicted in the dead of night. Friends of the joint are showing their support of Ye Coach’s Facebook page.
Hopefully, Sam French will understand the significance of something even being around for 73 years in Los Angeles, and reconsider their stance. Not only would the city lose yet another historical icon – thousands of actors and writers will be left to wander the streets of Hollywood is search of a new watering hole. One that is only further away from the bookstore to which they are paying customers.
