Closing time for the dive bar

In the early 80s Chris and Neil used to drink in the basement "dive bar" of the King's Head pub in Chinatown, Soho, and later immortalised it in "West End girls" as "a dive bar in a West End town". Now the London Evening Standard reports that the pub will close its doors for good on March 6. That gives you (and Neil and Chris) a month to have a farewell drink in the bar that inspired one of the PSB's biggest hits.
