Having completed a thorough clean and polish plus a little painting and renovation, MJ's Bar has just re-opened a few days before Easter. We are still small in size but extremely large on hospitality with great service and good conversation. We offer a fantastic choice of drinks, an amazing list of cocktail's mixed and served to perfection and special prices during Happy Hours. On top of playing a wide variety of requested music at the volume that is suitable, we also have Live Music during the week. So, come on in, dance, tap your feet and sing along and you are all guaranteed a great nights entertainment. We are at the top of the Cul-de-Sac, adjacent to the Slave Market.

My best friend and I visited Lagos for just 3 nights and we visited MJ's on 2 of these nights. What a good atmosphere in there. We had such a laugh and the music was great...typically British but great. The owner Maralyn was very welcoming and the service was quick. I will be going back there!

We found this little gem thanks to the numerous great reviews. Definitely worth a visit - brilliant value, tasty cocktails and the 80s music mix had the wife dancing all night!

Hallo 1951guide. Thank you for your comments on Tripadvisor. As you say, the bar is not too big but very friendly and nice. It is also classified as a Smokers Bar, meaning you can smoke inside. Until a few years ago you could smoke in any bar, then new regulations came into force. Some bars, like MJ's, that meet strict... More

Visited MJ's last night with girlfriend and another couple. Had a great time pumping lots of 80's, lots of Bowie, it was so good. The owners are really nice and know how to make a mean cocktail. I would recommend to absolutely anyone! Pictured is a cocktail called the Bananarama. Very strong, beautiful banana liquer.
