The Met



About Us

The Met strives to be that great third place. It ushers in the renewal of the neighborhood gathering establishment that to many is a nostalgic remnant of a time too long ago to remember. Here, we celebrate our history, diversity and the people of the City of Lima, Allen County and the surrounding counties that play, live and work in our City. We are approachable: The space includes an exposed kitchen serving “refined-hearty” cuisine, a beautiful locally crafted bar, original 21 foot tin ceilings, reclaimed tables, event spaces, private dining areas, a swanky lounge and quiet places for business meetings or intimate affairs.

Our food and beverage offerings are intended to be approachable and satisfying. We have things you are familiar with and present those that are a bit new to your palate with comfort and ease. We are locally owned and operated while being employee inspired and driven.

A catalyst for long-term sustained economic, social and environmental development in Downtown Lima by reusing, repurposing and revitalizing historic structures.
