This is a real gem in Lagos. Run by a very nice women who has created a café/bookshop/record store with a nice atmosphere. The coffee is nice and there is a small selection of cakes. The book part is excellent! Lots of interesting both ranging from fiction to non-fiction. The record part is focused on jazz (as the name says)... More

If you want triple value for money, that is you want to eat, you want to read and you love some Jazz, then Jazzhole is a square peg in a round hole. Since I am planning a new family, I have started shopping for restaurants of value that I can take my kids to and Jazzhole tops my list

I've been dying to go for ages, and it's not disappointing. The owner must have great taste. Music- excellent. Books - excellent. Coffee - excellent. Cake - excellent. Tea - excellent. What else can I say? It's excellent. Parking can be an issue.

As said elsewhere, I've been out of Lagos for a while and the Jazzhole was yet another interesting place I visited, A book review was given and I met with some people to listen. Besides listening to an interesting review I was amazed at the number of books packed into this shop. The books are a combo of second hand... More

I have been to the Jazzhole many times over the years and it is still the only place in Nigeria where you can dine and wine and enjoy great Jazz music and later relax in the lounge to read a book from the largest collection of good books in any restaurant and surrounded by African artworks.

went there for a series of live shows (spoken words, intrumentals etc)...very artsy fartsy. Chill scene, drinks and snacks are a bit overpriced. Hey, it's Ikoyi, what can one expect? Reminds me of one of those little bookstores in the grungy neighborhoods in the States. People there are also down to earth and friendly.

If you are looking for something to read, but not sure what, you can't fail to inspired by something here! Prices are reasonable too. You can also sit and enjoy a coffee/drink and/or snack while you make your selection.
