“MJ's an honest assessment”
5 of 5 bubbles Review of MJ's Bar

MJ's Bar
Ranked #1 of 25 Nightlife in Lagos
Certificate of Excellence

Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: 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.

“MJ's an honest assessment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014 via mobile

Have just finished two weeks here in Lagos, first time visitor. Have to say we made MJ's a cornerstone of our nights out. The bar staff were incredibly accommodating and friendly. It's not the biggest bar but that adds to its charm. Either to start the night with a couple of cocktails (not skimping on the measures!!) Or finishing the night with a couple of cocktails! ! Hmm bit of a theme here!! Visit Marilyn an you can't go wrong I promise.

“Lovely bar, great atmosphere :))”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

This was out first time in Portugal so is all very new to us. We was out and decided to try cocktails in MJ's bar. Wow what a night is all I can say amazing cocktails and fantastic banter and conversation. Marilyn makes you feel very welcome at the bar and made a point of making conversation with us. After 3 strawberry daiquiri's and a few other little cocktails we left very happy and with an inexpensive bill too;)))) thanks Marilyn xxx

“BEST LITTLE BAR IN THE WEST(ERN) ALGARVE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

Dropped into this super friendly bar run by Marilyn just off the main drag in Lagos old town and have been back several times during my stay.... and will revisit on my next visit !! Great, realistic prices and great cocktails. Not open on Mondays but hey-ho everyone deserves a day off LOL. Met and chatted to folk from different parts of Europe and have made some new friends too. I'm a motorcycle fan and so too is the hostess and many of her customers (but you wouldn't know unless you asked) If you don't drop in for an evening you'll be missing a great night out.

Hallo David.
Judging by your headline, you must be a Dolly Parton fan!!!
I will get her album ready for your next visit. The cover is in 3D. You wish!!!
Even if you do not like Dolly, you will still be welcome.
Glad that you found MJ's otherwise, we would never have had the
chance to entertain you.
And entertained is what we did, to such an extent that you lost track of time.
We close on Sundays, not Mondays.
looking forward to seeing you again and all your other Biker friends.
Regards,
Marilyn.
