One of the best reviewed bars in all of Lagos, The Star is a sure hit if you’re looking for a guaranteed good time.

2 Peppers Bar

Peppers Bar is one of those delightful hidden gems of Lagos. On the face of things, you might slide past it and let it go unnoticed, but my oh my, once you get inside, you’ll see what all the fuss is about! Well known for its tasty cocktails and innovative mixology, Peppers Bar is particularly favoured for its wonderful rooftop terrace.

3 Three Monkeys Bar

This one is a firm favourite and has returning patrons year after year. The staff are well known to be very much fun focused and you’ll quickly feel like you’ve known them all your life. The drink selection is plentiful and there’s also beer bongs, pool, darts and some great music.

4 The Tavern

This bar is notorious for its great atmosphere and plenty have deemed it the number one bar in Lagos. With friendly staff, neon nights, plenty of dancing and drinks as well as great music, The Tavern isn’t your average laid-back local! Oh and watch out, walking the plank or dealing with vikings might also be on the cards too!

5 McCabe's Bar

This quaint Irish pub has acquired many fans over the years and proffers great beer (and Guinness of course) as well as a welcoming atmosphere. You can either lounge in a private little booth or else pull up a pew at the bar and get chatting to the staff who will happily talk your ear off! There’s pool, darts, the sports channel on and live music performances during the summer too.
