It can be easily found by the sign -- a huge slice of lime (what else?) -- and its neon interior that lights the street below. And in the early morning hours, the booming, hypnotic sound would be a magnet even for the blind.
This place is a sophisticated sort of 3-in-1 venue: nightclub, bar and restaurant – with very good food. But lets forget about the food: that is for old people! What about the music?
Music is mostly House, Techno or Tribal, played by the club's resident or visiting DJs. Club Lime is also developing a tasty line in drum-and-bass, the only place in Phuket featuring this music.
One can say that the owners of Club Lime try very hard to increase the quality of the music played in Patong, so far with mixed success; guest DJs from Bangkok are regularly on the program and for a while it was even rumored that DJ Tiesto would play there (but he went to play in Bangkok instead, his price tag was well out of line for such a small venue).
Open from 6 pm till late. Thursday’s ladies' night – free entry and a free drink for girls only. On other nights expect to pay 200 baht, or more if there's a special act.
Other have visited too, for example Matt Crook, who had the following to say:
I went to Club Lime for the first time on Friday night. What's good about this place is that it pushes real dance music and the DJs are fairly decent. The music was primarily electro, with a bit of house and tech house to boot. It was real dance floor stuff, although Club Lime doesn’t have much of a dance floor. But still, there is space in front of the bar to dance.... the last thing would not be all that bad for me personally to witness :-)
The guys at Club Lime are looking to push clubbing in Phuket to new boundaries. Starting next month, there will be drum ‘n’ bass nights (which I might get involved in) and more DJs will be asked to play.
The only thing with Club Lime is the people who go there. This is something that needs a bit of work. Hopefully a couple of articles I'm writing will drive some actual clubbers to the venue.
At the moment, it feels a bit like Bed Supperclub. Lime is full of old dudes and property sales girls. The sales girls in particular get on my nerves because they do nothing except take pictures of one another and rub their bodies on each other when everybody is looking.
