Actually on the ABA bar
Apr 2017
Great bar in the Lobby of the Macau-side MGM. Chinese folks come to Macau for gambling and shopping and do not necessarily drink, so it's hard to find a good bar. This is the one. Take your time to order a G&T. Choices, choices!

No longer in operation. Check before considering visiting the MGM for bars/live music. The nearest bar of similar quality is Heart Bar across the street in The Ascott. For music and bars the nearby Bar Street is a more downscale option.

Loud
Nov 2015
If you just want to relax with your friends, then that bar is not suitable to you. It is just a place for get crazy. The music is loud and you completely cannot chat with your friends.

This Bar has a classy ambiance yet high energy. One of the best there is in Macau. The staff are all friendly specially the manager on duty.. They have good musicians that play dynamic party music. I definitely will be back.

Fun night out
Nov 2015
Always a good band playing, service is prompt. A good place for a fun night out.. Fellas watch out for the girls. Most of them are a bit 'costly'

A Great Tip for a Great atmosphere and live entertainment and Cheap Stay.
Feb 2016
MGM Lion's Bar is an excellent venue for live entertainment and great atmosphere, however it does depend on which night of the week you go.
I have been on various nights and found surprisingly that midweek always had a good crowd and this increased dramatically towards the weekend.

Drinks were moderate to high priced and I always received really good service from the staff and enjoyed myself just casually sitting at the bar watching and listening to the nights entertainment and be given snacks to eat also.

Please do be aware that there are many beautiful ladies inside this venue and many but not all are there to extract cash from punters who are slightly inebriated. (ladies of the night) So do be aware you have now been forewarned!

A little tip I found out whilst on an evening adventure: Across the road from MGM are a few places that offer excellent massages at an affordable rate. ( affordable because you are in the MGM Lion's Bar!). If you come from Hong Kong and need to stay the night, why not opt for an early morning massage. If you fall asleep, staff don't usually wake you up and will leave you alone for a few hours. You can also have a nice shower then go catch a taxi to take you to the ferry terminal.

I hope this helps everyone have more fun and money in your pockets!

Best regards

Shaun

an wonderful experience in lion's Bar.
Jan 2016
MGM is a famous company includes the casino, shopping store, restaurants, hotel, and bar. When you enter the MGM, you will see a splendid and big golden lions at the lobby. MGM also have many Michelin stars buffet, the price range from 400 to 800. But it's really really good to have a try. Back to the topic, the customers also need to show their passport. I think the price is cheaper than SKY 21. the bar has a band, every day present different style music and different countries music. From 12 pm, there will be so many people, especially the foreigners, like to play at this bar. The layout has a proscenium, the sofa with table. lion's bar not only epitomize excellent live entertainment but also provide a customized and friendly service, promising you can have an unforgettable experience. Come and have fun, don't miss it.

MGM -what have you done ? EAST has gone very much South !
Feb 2016 • Friends
Having visited the Lion Bar many times over recent years they would always guarantee a lively night with good talented musicians playing R&B and Soul. Drinks are always a bit pricey but never a problem for me given the high quality of the band.
I dragged some friends there on Friday night and I instantly knew something was adrift as at mid night there were only about 10 people in the whole place - more staff then customers.
After a while a Chinese/Asian band appeared on stage and in 10 secs it soon became apparent why the place was empty. This band named East, which could at best be described as amateurish managed to frighten us away after 3 songs. They were embarrassing to watch and the vocalist was frequently out of tune and the whole act seemed like 2nd rate karaoke. We left with our drinks half consumed. I really cannot understand how MGM have not worked out why their bar is empty. There are numerous bars in HK with much better quality of musicians so I do not think MGM have gone to much effort in their recruitment process. Great shame as I really used to like going to the Lion Bar but for now I suggest anyone wanting to see a good live band in Macau then you are going to need to head across to the Venetian.

I clearly knew something had changed big time when I visited on a Friday night

Best Asian Band In Macau! Good Sound System With Professional Service.
Mar 2016 • Friends
Was there on 19th March Sat and the place was quite filled. My Macau friend is getting married and was there for Bachelor Night. The staff was very friendly and helpful and one of the hostess there is so pretty. :)

I think i met one of the best Chinese bands in Macau. Heard from the staffs they were there for only a month and the standard is very good judging they have only 1 singer in the front. They managed to sing many different kinds of language and mind you, is good and they know the languages well. Comparing to other bars with the same kind of concept like Grand Emperor, Starworld or Galaxy, this band really delivers. We love them. The place also have very good sound system comparing to other bars in Macau.

Will be back again next month and looking forward to come back to Lions Bar for all the professional services mentioned above.

New Band - Dreadful
Mar 2016 • Couples
The long running house band "Soul Republic" has recently been replaced by a new band - East. Not sure whether this was a cost cutting measure in Macau's currently troubled times, or a clever idea to offer a set with more diverse and Asian songs. If the latter then the band needs replacing ASAP because music is not math. To describe this band as wooden would be polite. People were walking in and leaving within minutes.

Given the quality of the entertainment the drinks prices are ridiculous.

Very disappointing.
