Great music, and the best location, right on top of the beach!!
Dress Code: no dress code is required, although youl fit in better with trousers..
Just got back from a great week in Lagos, loved it! Spent most of my evenings at Wolfs Lair which is just next to Bom Vivant on the main strip. Its open till 4 pm and you can dance your heart out, great music and great staff!!
Dress Code: relaxed
lagos has a lot of bars, the most british bars but also from other freigners and also portugese bars,
the barkeeper of bar terapia is a german, is a nice ambiance
near bar terapia you have also bar greehouse
around the marina there are also some bars
Dress Code: relaxed bohemian
Take a trip to the main square in the evening there is always something going on and its free. it varies from magicians to street busker's or just watch the artists doing there portraits, we found some evenings we would just sit on one of the benches and just watch the world go by.
No need to worry about the shops closing ,most shops are open in the evening
until about 10pm or later.
If its your first time the supermarkets are called Supermacardos (spelling might be wrong).if your looking for discos your in the wrong location,although there are a couple, it is a mainly laid back location.
2008 and I am back from another visit to Lagos,and what a treat we had in store! if you click here you will see a video I took, we had no idea these people were in town or even who they were but they were spectacular.
Dress Code: No special dress required short sleeved shirt
light trousers etc, but you might want to take a light jacket as it can get breezy in the evening.
A family friendly bar and great fun. They have a spacious bar so plently of space for your big family or group of friends. They have lots of screens for sports events. pool table and video games for the kids. I also played a great games of fun poker on the card table. Also great for Mexican food served in an informal atomsphere
Dress Code: NONE
This was my favourite bar. Why?
Beacuse they have the best music in the city!!! REGGAE MUSIC!!
They play from ska to new roots: Sizzla, Buju Banton, Third World, Byron Lee, etc.
The have a really good caipirinha also. You pay 3 and you have 4. Dangerous offer!!
This beach party takes place in Praia da Batata by the 10th of August. I recomend to buy the tickets because they are cheaper in advance.
It's really crowded every year, actually, you'll have serious problems to ask for a beer.
REMIND TO BUY THE TICKETS FOR THE DRINKS. They don't accept money and many people wait for a long time and then they can't ask because they don't have tickets, so they have to wait twice. Upsetting!!
There are two stages:
- Main Area: Techno, Drum'n Bass and screens with crazy images.
- Reggae Area: Many sound systems and MC's during the night.
The party takes place from 21:30 to 6:00.
- Advance: 15€
- At the moment: 20€
We arrived from Lagos just last week having visited for the third time and certainly intend to return next year.
There are many great bars in Lagos however we would have to say “Eddies Bar” is one place to avoid. We paid a visit to Eddies early one evening and after seeing a rather delicious looking marguerita being prepared and served to someone at the bar we decided to order one of the same. The previous drink was shaken and mixed in a cocktail shaker and served in a marguerita glass with the usual salted rim. However our drink was then prepared in under 30 seconds by pouring the ingredients into a plain looking glass and handed to us without ice or salt and certainly did not resemble any kind of cocktail. This was disappointing enough but to top the lot when we complained to the barman he answered “I don’t have time right now to make cocktails”.
As previously stated good bars are numerous in Lagos but Eddies is not one of them.
Dress Code: casual
if you know a local or are good at exploring and either are travelling with someone special or need to find some peace of mind check out ponta de piedade at night time. this "make out" point... was the supposed place for two lovers. and i can see why. its is away from the city noise and lights so that the stars look brillant against the dark sky. you can climb down the steep trail and lay on a bluff and watch the trawelers sail by and the stars shine. no one is ever there... and its amazingly beautiful. its not far from the city and is extremely safe. i would go either alone or with a friend to reflect or spend quality time. its beautifullllllllll! ps bring a blanket it can get cold
I noticed that the drinks in Lagos are really strong... sometimes too strong to even drink.
Nearly every bar has some kind of promotion to get you in.. there are people handing out flyers everywhere.
There are a lot of Austrailian and English people in Lagos, particularly working in bars, so English is not hard to hear.
The Three Monkeys is a relaxed, occasionally loud, always welcoming bar.
For us was the best in Lagos. Despite the younger crowd, the owner operators (Jon and Kendall) ensure that the music stays cool for those born at the beginning of the 70s.
Dress Code: Erm... no. It's near the youth hostel and often looks like it.
These streets during the night are full of pubs and dancing places where you can have lots of fun. they stay open till morning. many english, irish pubs... lots of discos...
Dress Code: casual, remember this is a city near the beach, people will not expect more than some shorts tshirt, of course you have some more fancy places than others. just check first.
Gil Eanes statue. He was born in Lagos and was one of the Portuguese navigators, valet of Infant D. Enrique, who passed for the first time beyond the Bojador Cape, removing the superstitious terror that this promontory inhaled and thus initiating the time of the great Discoveries (1434).
This is the fortress Forte Do Pau da Bandeira, at the Lagos Port.
Built in the late 17th century, it includes a chapel dedicated to Saint Barbara and has inside an important collection of 18th -century glazes tiles. The fort was restored in the sixties and is a genuine ex-libris of the ancient maritime forts of Lagos.
Did you thought I was going to show you bars and discos? Well, no! That is easy. If you walk in the main streets you will find a lot of them with nice music calling for you.
I'm going show you, instead, some pictures of the city at night.
This is a view of the walls.
Dress Code: If it is cold put your jacket, if it is warm, you may show your beautiful color.
