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.

Myself and my partner had the best night in Lagos at Mj's! Amazing cocktails, Marylin just making them bespoke to our alcohol choices, and lots of delicious concoctions! MJK was my favourite!

We visited Mj's at the beginning of April for a cocktail making class and I could not rate it highly enough. We had a brilliant class with the lovely Marilyn and had so much fun we decided to come back that evening for a few drinks and ending up stayed all night long. Marilyn and Michael could not have been... More

My wife and I were in Lagos just before the high season but had a great time with Marilyn nonetheless. We had an 80's dance party (my wife's request) and Marilyn was helpful in passing along reccomendations for restaurants as well.

The short version of MJ's is that it has amazing cocktails because the bartender, Marilyn, can literally make hundreds (along with being fantastic to talk to), and plays great music that caters to all tastes. The long version is this: a couple of friends and I came to Lagos on an off-peak season near Christmas, so there was hardly anyone... More

We lived in Lagos for six months and MJ's was one of our regular haunts, and whenever we're back in town we always drop in. Marilyn is so friendly, kind, and great fun - an amazing hostess! Her cocktails are extraordinary and she always takes the time to sit and chat with her customers. I honestly cannot recommend this place... More

We would echo the last review from Lucy O. You are always made very welcome and hostess Marilyn has some great tips for those staying in Lagos and other places to visit. Great value for money and the music caters for all tastes. Marilyn, we hope your op went well and you are now taking medical advice and resting. Plenty... More

Having been to MJ's on our last visit to Lagos me, my partner and our friends made sure to pop in again this time, and ended up spending most evenings propping up the bar! The bar was quite quiet due to it being later in the season, but still has a great atmosphere. Marilyn always makes us feel so welcome,... More

Not sure whether this bar has found it's niche in the Lagos bar scene, seemed neither to be the party place nor the place to spend time in relaxing with your drinks. Yes, lovely lady ( Marilyn ? I think ). Marketed as a cocktail bar and is more that than somewhere to go for what I regard as drinks.... More
