The Lime Lounge is the home tiki bar of AtomicLady and her boyfriend, Jim. Their first home tiki bar began in 2012 in their previous apartment, and the current incarnation started when they moved in 2015.
The bar is in a rented apartment, meaning they've had to get creative with how they decorate the space. The room began when the couple found a bar and stools in a neighborhood antique store and decided to build around it. To lower the ceiling and make the space more cozy, they built a hanging bamboo frame and a little thatch roof. It occupies half of the apartment's living room, and keeps growing, including the recent addition of a shelving unit for souvenir mugs from their travels. The decor includes art from El Gato Gomez, Shag and Witco. The couple entertains in the space often, with music and drinks.
