Brisbane's High-Flying Limes Hotel Is Up For Sale

There's going to be one less in the stable for Damian Griffiths.

Got some spare cash burning a hole in your bank account? Then you could own one of Brisbane's top spots. Ten years after it revamped an otherwise unloved patch of Fortitude Valley and started a trend, Limes Hotel is for sale.

Over the past decade, most of Brisbane has made an excuse to drop by the boutique establishment, not that one was needed. Maybe you've had a drink at its rooftop bar. Perhaps you've plunged in the rooftop pool (one of our favourite outdoor swimming pools in Brisbane) while watching a movie under the stars. You might've even treated yourself to a night in one of its pretty rooms.

Either way, change is a-coming to the pioneering place on Constance Street behind the train station, which previously hosted some of the worst real estate in Brisbane. Just what the future holds is yet to be determined; however logic dictates that whoever the new proprietor turns out to be ought to be thrilled with the booming business they're buying.

Current owner, Damian Griffiths, has plenty of other things to keep him busy. Les Bubbles is due to open on September 10, a spate of kiosks are set to take over South Bank in October, and then there's the already operational Alfred & ConstanceDoughnut Time and Kwan Bros, aka some of the city's most beloved hangouts and suppliers of tasty treats and Asian meals.
