  • Situated on the back streets between King Street and Albert Square, Lime is a popular cocktail bar, restaurant and nightclub. Opened in 2001 as the Northern sister to their original London bar (which has since closed down), it has since also been joined by another Lime at The Lowry in Salford Quays.The main bar and restaurant are on the ground floor, offering food and drinks throughout the day and evening. Downstairs is the wonderfully named Sublime, a superb club space featuring a large bar area, air conditioned dance floor and a great soundsystem playing cheesy pop, Madchester favourites and classic rock music to the packed crowds every weekend.

    Without a doubt, the best place in Manchester to go for a dance. The days of nightclubbing are long gone – it’s a case of finding a decent bar and when nicely ‘oiled’, get yourself onto the dancefloor. I suppose being on the higher side of 20 gives me this attitude as I just can’t cut it with the teen generation dancing to R’n’B anymore.

    Therefore, LIME is the place for me. A quick drink upstairs and then it is time to go downstairs for the night (usually 11pm, we make our way down). A decent bar to your left and dancing to the right. Time for a White Russian as we soak up the atmosphere and weigh up the local talent (and on that note, there’s plenty of great looking women!)
    Time to strut our stuff on the dancefloor, always room to dance, but never dead. The music is crowd pleasing stuff ranging from Stone Roses to Chesney Hawkes. It’s pure cheese on a stick. Basically ask the DJ for whatever, and usually within 5 songs, it’s on! It’s open till 2am and the night flies as everyone down stairs at SUB Lime is having a ball (average age probably 25 plus). The only downside is it is bloody hot down there, like a typical European bar, but it isn’t too smokey and let’s face it, burning off them extra calories, especially after the White Russian, doesn’t do anyone any harm, although I guess a sweat dripping overweight 29 year old bopping away in the corner isn’t the sexiest sight for the ladies. Who cares? Everyone’s having fun at LIME. See you down there one Saturday night. I’m the one dancing like an excited nutter when “I am the Resurrection!” is booming away.

    Appears to be a nice bar until you have to approach the Manager!! Arranged to go there for my friend’s hen do, and had organised that week to be put on the guest list. When we arrived they had failed to put us on the guest list, and the staff and manager were extremely unhelpful in trying to resolve the issue. Generally poor management as also only two bar staff on. Ridiculous! Also do not agree with the fact that you have to put your coat in the cloakroom and pay for it to be put in ! The only other bar I know of where they make you do this is panacea and they do not charge you !!!!

    I VISITED THIS BAR FOR THE FIRST TIME ON THE 3RD MARCH 2007, AND I THINK IT’S AN EXCELLENT AND ONE OF THE MOST STYLISH BARS I’VE VISITED IN MANCHESTER. A CLEAN, SLEEK LOOKING BAR. THE DRINKS WERE REASONABLE AND THE ATMOSPHERE WAS GREAT.
    THE LOCATION OF THE BAR HOWEVER WAS HARD TO FIND DUE TO BUILDING WORK GOING ON, BUT WE EVENTUALLY FOUND THE BAR.

    I love Lime, try to go every last saturday of the month, usually one in slug or waterhouse, then onto lime before hitting picclinos for a meal, the wine is quite decent and fairly reasonable, music is a good mix of old and new chart, people a mixed crowd a lovely feel in this bar.well done lime..

    the food is soooo weak….we waited for a good 30 – 45 mins for our food to arrive only to find the starter we ordered was substituted for something else without consulting us first, it didnt even appeal to me so i didnt eat it…..the jerk chicken special main dish that i ordered wasnt even jerk chicken but plain sliced chicken breast in some kind of next sauce that had zero spice or jerk flavour to it……the waitress told me that their chef was jamaican so it was authentic jerk chicken….not sure which jamaica hes from, jamaica street in manchester maybe…i suggest first he looks up what jerk chicken is on wikipedia.com….thumbs down all around. save your money and keep your stress levels low by going elsewhere.

    we were offered a flyer that said that we could get 2 meals for the price of one next time, little did we know that the offer was a promotional thing that was a general offer for the month anyhow…so why did we pay for two meals? to be fair to the waitress she didnt charge us for the starter and she was cool enough but the food sucked bigtime….and the wait was ridiculous, although it was a good way for them to make more money on extra drinks whilst we were waiting….worst food experience of my life, will never go back…i suggest they close the kitchen and stick to selling beers and playing music

    We took a party of 35 ladies there for a lunch time do – though we ended up staying until late and we had a ball.

    The food was fantastic, even though there were so many of us and the waiting staff were excellent, friendly and helpful all day.

    Not easy to please so many people but Lime did and we’ll be going back again!
