Decided to test out the roof top bar at the brand new Limes Hotel in Constance Street, Fortitude Valley on Thursday night. It's on the north side of St Pauls Terrace, just a short walk from the Valley proper. The roof top bar is very sexy with lots of fluro lighting and cute little cabanas that come complete with a couple of cosy rugs for the cool weather. We sampled two cocktails which the obliging bar tender made up to suit our on the spot whims. They were delicious, but at $18.50 each our next drinks will be standard mixers.
The other side of the roof top has an open air cinema which would be a great place for a gathering or function. In fact the whole floor would be a very cool party venue.
We had a peek through one of the compact but very well appointed rooms. The complimentary Dello Mano brownies are sure to be a big hit with guests. The hotel has 21 rooms.
