After a successful Detty December in Lagos, I feel qualified to recommend some of the top clubs, beach clubs and lounges in this incredible part of Nigeria.
One thing I know for sure now is that Lagos is a city that never sleeps. The nights end at around 6-7am everyday and the fun? NEVER ENDS
I've created this blog post for anyone that is visiting Nigeria and wants to know where some of the best nightlife is in Lagos. I hope that this is helpful for you.
Disclaimer: Opening times are just a guideline, most places stay open way later than the time advertised!
1. Moist / Oniru Beach Club
This is one of the hottest beach clubs in town. It’s popularly known for its great vibes, good tunes spun by the DJ, beautiful open-plan setting and its suya! Yes...suya 😍
This beach club often hosts many events that are enjoyed by locals, tourists and even celebrities. The first time I visited, I saw Tiwa Savage casually partying!
Iru local government, Ligali Ayorinde St, Victoria Island 100011, Lagos, Nigeria
Tues-Thurs : 11am-3am
Fri-Sun : 11am-4am
2. W Bar
W Bar is arguably one of the hottest new spots in Lagos. It’s a great scene for socialites to hang out and meet new people over some cocktails, good music in a beautiful setting.
LASWA Yard, Under Falomo Bridge, Next To MTN Plaza Falomo, Ikoyi 101233, Lagos, Nigeria
Weds-Thurs : 4pm-12am
3. Buzz Barr
Buzz Barr is a bustling lounge and restaurant located in the heart of Victoria Island. Enjoy the great vibes at this venue with the hottest tracks being spun by international DJs.
Besides eating and drinking until you can't anymore, BuzzBarr is a popular spot on the Island for both locals and tourists and is a great place to meet new people and socialise.
30 Adetokunbo Ademola Street, Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria
Monday & Tuesday - Closed
Wednesday-Sunday - 8pm–5am
Quilox is undoubtedly one of the hottest spots in Lagos that is rampacked nearly every night of operation. You can be sure to catch a vibe in here and maybe even see some familiar faces.
Whether you want to hang outside in the open front yard where music is blasting, or enjoy the nightclub setting indoors, you are sure to have a great time.
The great thing about this venue is that they sometimes have 24hr parties and there is an option to head to the restaurant upstairs to grab some authentic and tasty Nigerian food. However after the recent scandal, hours of operation have been restricted.
873 Ozumba Mbadiwe Rd, Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria
Shiro is a club located in Oniru, right next to Hardrock Cafe. This venue is a short walk from Oniru Beach Club and is a great spot to escape to is Moist (Oniru Beach Club) isn't popping...and vice versa.
Enjoy Champagne, Shisha and tasty food from this upscale venue which has undeniably good vibes.
Tip: At the exit of the club, there is a beautiful backdrop and hollywood lights that is perfect for capturing that insta-worthy shot!
Block XVI 3 & 4 Victoria Island Oniru Estate, 101241, Lagos, Nigeria
6. Sip Lounge
Sip Lounge is home to some of the best strobe-lighting, tunes, vibes and scenery in Lagos. If you want to experience the real Lagos nightlife then I recommend starting your night here. You will be able to drink, smoke some shisha and enjoy the company of friends and newbies.
Tip: Don't bother bringing a camera inside, blogger or no blogger the bouncers won't allow it.
11B Akin Adesola St, Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria
7. RSVP Lounge
Last but not least, RSVP Lounge is another spot worth visiting in Lagos. If you're looking to have a chilled night with the option of shaking a leg and getting tipsy, then this is the place for you.
There is a swimming pool in the middle of the outdoor space by the bar (that I never really see anyone hop into...but anyway) It's great for aesthetic purposes.
This is another location in Lagos that is quite popular amongst locals and tourists that are looking to unwind and let their hair down.
9 Eletu Ogabi St, Victoria Island 101001, Lagos, Nigeria
Mon : Closed
Tues-Thurs : 12pm-11pm
