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

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

Hallo Phoenix. Sorry to read that you were not comfortable. I am in the process of changing the bar chairs to more softer and comfortable ones. As you say yourself. Horses for Courses.

Hallo Adie W. Now that is what I call a short and sweet review. Very nice to read that I can compete against the mighty Atlantic. You can Hang Ten at the bar without getting your feet wet.

3 years since we were last here, and still the best place in Lagos for a warm, friendly welcome and great cocktails. Children loved the non-alcoholic ones as well. Marilyn is a gem - can't do enough to help you. A must visit place whenever in Lagos. See you next year - can't wait!

If you want to make contact with reality go and see Marilyn and Noemi have the best drink you can imagine at a value that is so acceptable and company that makes you want to return every night. And that's what we have done. Thank you MJ's Bar to making our holiday!!!
