Noble Fine Liquor in Hackney has closed after a decade of trading.
Launched by Liam Kelleher in 2012, the company announced the closure on social media last month. P Franco and Bright, the company’s other London venues, have also closed.
Part of the announcement reads: “Our focus at this stage is to try to do right by our staff and suppliers whilst we try to navigate our way down a path we never thought we’d have to walk.
“To our guests and customers, we extend our thanks and love. London is a big city, with many thousands of restaurants and shops. Every visit you made to us was appreciated and never taken for granted.”
But it might not be the end of the road for P Franco. Former manager Will Gee has launched a crowdfunder to reopen the premises, with the aim of raising £30,000.
He describes P Franco as “a meeting place for winemakers, drinkers and lovers since 2014”.
