Nice place if you are visiting, to hang out and catch a glimpse of the many facets of Lagos, whether cuisine, plastic arts or even theater or music. Freedom Park is a must see place, exuding many magical memories of old Lagos, as well

One of the lesser known places where you get to chill with some beer n local delicacies. Weekends are great with live bands. Rates are cheap and affordable. Not much expat crowds are seen. However, a great place to explore!
