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.

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.

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.

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.
