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. « less

Always a warm welcome from Marylin and Mike, our 3rd year in Lagos and always make this bar our first port of call.!! We enjoyed the laughs both with Marylin and some of the other customers.never a dull moment, very good drink selection and cocktails and brandy measures are ok in moderation, you must remember you have to walk home.!!!!...

3 years since we were last here, and still the best place in Lagos for a warm, friendly welcome and great cocktails. Children loved the non-alcoholic ones as well. Marilyn is a gem - can't do enough to help you. A must visit place whenever in Lagos. See you next year - can't wait!

If you want to make contact with reality go and see Marilyn and Noemi have the best drink you can imagine at a value that is so acceptable and company that makes you want to return every night. And that's what we have done. Thank you MJ's Bar to making our holiday!!!

This bar was fantastic. The drinks were great and very reasonably priced and the owner Marilyn was such a good host. I sat and worked my way through some of the cocktails from the extensive list and every time I was given my drink I was asked if it was okay and to my liking. The music was great and... More
