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.

We came here in summer last year and returned again this year (June) because it's such a great little bar. Marilyn makes fabulous cocktails (I recommend the Siamese Mojito or her Passionfruit Daiquiri!!) and she's a really great host... always welcoming and makes you feel at ease. In comparison to some bars in Lagos, the cocktails here are really well... More

Absolutely incredible! Marilyn is so much fun and welcomed us as an afternoon cocktail making class in the afternoon whilst keeping the bar closed to the public. The only rule was to drink all that's made! Such a great afternoon, thank you Marilyn!

Hallo Andrew. Glad to hear that you have taken some very good memories of MJ's Bar back to Cambridge. Does this mean we have to have a Cocktail List in Latin?? It was very nice of you to take the time to write such a positive review on Tripadvisor, I am most grateful. Hope to see you later this year.... More

By the end of your trip everyone will know your name.Great white wine and Cocktails.You will be made feel very welcome by Marilyn,Micheal and Peter. The price of drinks is very good during Happy Hour but stay on as they are still very reasonable when Happy Hour is over.

First visit and very impressed. Cocktails were strong and very tasty especially for the price. Only drawback was having to wait for drinks because the bar help wasn't allowed to make cocktails.. Shame because she seemed eager and knowledgeable.

Hallo Emma. You certainly know how to have a good time. The only thing missing was the man who says Lights, Camera Action!! We look forward to dishing out more exotic cocktails and watch you do the Betty Boop Shuffle. Always a pleasure to dispense sweet tasting medicine to a nice patient like you. Regards, Marilyn. More

A cosy bar just off of 25th April street that should been never missed. My friends and I visited the bar and were made so welcome by Marilyn who creates all the drinks and Michael who plays incredible music. The bar is absolutely clean and so friendly which make you feel that you never want leave.
