The Reverence Hotel in Footscray has announced it will be shutting down.

The pub - which has also served as a live music venue - confirmed in a Facebook post on Tuesday that it was unable to secure another lease on the building.

It will continue operating until March 2, 2019.

"Let us first say, the community and support The Reverence Hotel has had since we established ourselves in Footscray 6.5 years ago has been incredible," they wrote on Facebook.

"Unfortunately it's now time we call last drinks with last day of trading planned for March 2nd.


"We haven’t managed to secure another lease on the pub and have been operating on a month-to-month basis. Without a lease or any certainty for a home, we are unable to plan long term and have had to stop investing back into the venue.

"Looking back we are really proud of our achievements, the community that has congregated, and the memories that have been made are immense. What we’ve created here has far surpassed our expectations!"
