The cellars remained there until 1936, at which point the Arches were demolished.

Hankey Bannister & Co was obliged to move thousands of bottles to new storage across the river to Southwark, near the site of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre where, even so, the incendiary bombs found them 4 years later. After moving to 22 St. James Street Hankey Bannister began absorbing a number of other West End firms, acting as an umbrella for various small wine merchants. supplying the Royal Household and many exclusive clubs.
