Daytime drinking hole Lime to close

The Castro bar and restaurant Lime, known for drawing daytime drinkers, is closing.

The business’s Facebook page says, “As all good things must come to an end so is the fate of Lime Restaurant. We are extremely proud of the success that we’ve had and couldn’t thank you enough for all your patronage and support. We are so happy that we could do something great for San Francisco!”

Sunday, June 3, will be the farewell party at Lime, which is at 2247 Market Street.

It’s not clear why exactly the business is closing. Owner Greg Bronstein didn’t immediately respond to an interview request today (Thursday, May 31).

Earlier this year, Lime had to shut down briefly due to apparent tax problems. Records indicate Bronstein has had trouble with the California Board of Equalization and the state Franchise Tax Board. Citing confidentiality rules, staffers at those agencies have previously declined to comment specifically on Lime’s situation.

John Carr, a spokesman for the state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, said Thursday that he didn’t see any record of Lime closing because of problems with his agency.
