My Take: One of the very first joints I visited during my stay in Lagos was Hard Rock Cafe. I’ve heard so many references about this American Restaurant, I was super excited to check it out. I loved the restaurant theme with the Rock and Roll Memorabilia hanging on the walls. I especially loved the outdoor area, that’s adjacent to the beach, over looking the Atlantic Ocean. Very nice place to soak up the sun and enjoy a nice cold beer. They occasionally invite guest Djs on Weekend nights and the place get’s lit 🔥. Definitely a must visit when in Nigeria.

My Take: UpTown Grill located on Kilimani Road comes alive on Friday Nights with good music and provides a nice place for an after-work hang-out. It’s known for it’s wide selection of Matured Whiskey and I personally think quite a lot of creativity was put into its interior decor. It also has a nice balcony setting where you can get to enjoy a drink or a smoke…they also serve up some great meals.

My Take: Most people know Slim’s restaurant for their signature buffalo wings which are apparently a big deal. The Mrs and I went there on a Tuesday night (for the live band, The HashTag Band 👌, every Tuesday from 8pm) and just had to try these wings. Uhmmm…I don’t know whether it was an off night for the chef, but didn’t really feel the wings – there were a tad-bit too tangy for me, like there was too much vinegar, or may be that just how they make them… Well, you could give it a try yourself, you might like it, but personally – meh! I prefer the wings at ArtCaffe. I did enjoy the cold beer though 🙂
PS: Check out Dotty and The HashTag Band every Tuesday at Slims for awesome Jazz music
