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 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

Went here one night during Happy hour, a couple (read alot) of cocktails later I was not disappointed. Sweet bar with classic 80's songs, nice staff and dangerously good cocktails!

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.

There probably aren't enough words to describe just how fab this place is, Marilyn is just so nice and friendly, the music and atmosphere are fab, cocktails are amazing and at 3.5 Euros each there's nothing to complain about!

We (6 of us in total) visited MJ's after reading the brilliant reviews on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed! We arrived during 'happy hour' to find bargain priced prints and cocktails. Even after happy hour ended, drinks were still among the most reasonably priced (and nicest) in Lagos. The atmosphere in the bar is great, with a diverse mix of... More

Went here on three occasions. Being in the slightly older age group, we thought the first time was very good. We are mojito fans and have to say the ones on the first evening were excellent (the tip is crushed ice). The ones on subsequent evenings seemed to be hastily made ( but we still had a decent wait) and... More

Hallo Rollinghand. Sorry to read that you were disappointed with our service and entertainment. You made some good points which we have reacted to. It is just a shame that you did not speak up whilst in MJ's Bar, then we could have rectified the Cocktail problem plus played the music that you preferred. Criticism and good complaints are always... More

Before visiting Lagos recently my girlfriend and I, did the usual trip advisor scouting ahead and this place came up as one of the higher rated. After a few hours stumbling around the narrow streets we eventually staggered across it but initially dismissed the place as one of those 'mysteriously' high rated places you'd never actually bother with. From the... More
