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.

Great little bar with huge amounts of atmosphere. Drink cocktails while singing along to Luther Vandross, Mowtown & anything soulful.

We lived this bar very much. Good and social staff whi serves really good drinks. And the drinks menu is really long. I had a different but good drink here, I don't remember the name of the cocktail only that it was bitter/sour and made on whisky. I was happy to try new cocktails! They also have their own special...

Visited here with friends (three old geezers)on several occasions during our two weeks in Lagos. Plenty of drinks to choose from at very reasonable prices, good music, great for young or old, very friendly owners and staff, well worth trying.

MJ’s Bar in Lagos – a little gem just off the main street. No better place to chill out after an evening meal in Lagos. Great range of cocktails at a reasonable price and a really friendly welcome from Marilyn, while Michael selects the music. We have made MJ’s a regular stop each time we visit Lagos!

I felt very welcomed and relaxed in MJ's bar: having a few drinks, chatting with my friends, the excellent owners and staff, and other friendly customers. It was great to catch up and converse on some tunes I hadn't heard in a long spell played by the wonderfully informative and knowledgeable DJ, Michael. The owners of MJ's (Marilyn and Michael)...
