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

First time visitor to Lagos after spending the past 20 years in Central/Eastern Algarve. Blown away by the place and MJ's in particular. Chilled out, excellent tunes and cocktails en masse. Staff are fantastic especially Marilyn who even had John Smiths "airlifted" in for Dad, and booked us in to two fantastic restaurants nearby. There is a mixed crowd from... More

Have just finished two weeks here in Lagos, first time visitor. Have to say we made MJ's a cornerstone of our nights out. The bar staff were incredibly accommodating and friendly. It's not the biggest bar but that adds to its charm. Either to start the night with a couple of cocktails (not skimping on the measures!!) Or finishing the... More

At MJ's bar you get the best service and cocktails in Lagos. Each time we are in Lagos we drop in each night to visit Marilyn and Jason. We enjoy the cocktails and the perfect served cool beers. You should visit this fantastic bar.

I was on holiday with 6 other lads and we were enticed in by a bar rep due to the attractive smile on her face and the attractive beer prices that she was offering, mainly the beer prices though. When we first arrived we were a little sceptical as the bar was quite small and quite quiet, however soon after... More
