Rainbow

Status: Closed and demolished
Address: 140 Lever Street, EC1V (streetmap) (osm) (gmap) (bingmap) (streetview)
Former address: 19 West Place, Johns Row (1861)
Dates open: [1842]-[1871]
Notes: This is listed as the "Rainbow Coffee House Tavern" in the 1881 census, by which point it is a coffee house and no longer a pub, but it appears to have previously operated as a licensed establishment, presumably under the same name (though I have no evidence of its name when it was a beer house).
