The Lime Bar and Lounge in Liverpool Road, is just weeks away from opening in the shell of a century-old bungalow in Liverpool Road, following a £500,000 investment.

A spokesman for the bar said: “We’ve bought the very best. We’ve got a really up-to-date insulated roof, triple-acoustic glass and quality fittings - we’ve done a lot of research into what people want.”

The interior will have an industrial look, with muted tones and highlights of copper. There will also be ‘wine walls’, a new draft system that doesn’t use kegs - the first of its kind in the North West - and a wine sample dispenser.

When it opens at the end of May, the bar - which will also offer tapas-style food - will be able to hold 100 people downstairs, 40 upstairs and 80 outside. It will open from 11am-11pm every day apart from Saturday’s, when it will open until midnight.

The spokesman added: “Everyone I speak to is very excited about it and I’d like to thank the local community for their patience during construction.”
