A fun night of karaoke in Lagos. One drawback was the long trek to the bathrooms. Our party started out on the rooftop which had just one toilet, so it was down four flights of winding stairs to the basement to the other toilets. Not ideal when pregnant!

Both bar staff were highly skilled cocktail makers (competing at world level competitions) and made some of the most delicious and innovative classic cocktails I've tasted. Proud of their craft and very friendly. Atmosphere is relaxed initially but picks up later in the evening. DJ plays some good tunes. As it was low season, roof terrace was not open but... More

Head to the rooftop and get a seat early, so you can watch the sunset and have a drink. Service can be a little slow but this didn't take away too much from the experience.

Good bars in Lagos ... There isn't many ! This one is amongst the only ones worth a visit . Top floor is pleasant to sit in as the view provides a great place to people watch . The ground floor is busy with a house dj and the lower floor provides a place to dance . Most drinks are... More

As there aren't many bars in Lagos, Bon Vivant is one of the most popular and busy ones (especially the terrace on the top- it is difficult to find places in the evening). The cocktails are good, they make them quite fast and they are not expensive at all (mojito- 6€). There is a dj and the music is nice.... More

Good cocktails but smells like a sewer sometimes... Tables a bit sticky but thats what suger overdosed cocktails do to your tables. Most bartenders/waiters are ok all but one who was quite rude implying we had no money because we ordered 2 beers at one visit and no cocktails... Oh and if you like Justin Bieber youre in luck as...

Hey if you like to dance and drink this is the place for you. Have a drink on the first floor and then head downstairs after midnight for a dance party. Way more guys than girls but great energy. For a break and to cool off head up to the rooftop.

Bon Vivant stands like a beacon of noise and fun on one of Lagos' main thoroughfares. With four floors, each of which having a different decor and style of music, you will almost certainly find what you're looking for. I'd recommend heading to the roof terrace up top for a few of the largest gin and tonics you will ever... More

Came here for pre dinner cocktails, which are so nice and they have an extensive choice to pick from. Rooftop bar is really special as well! Only criticism is the staff there, the girl working behind the bar seemed too involved in chatting with the other members of staff to take anyone's order or clear tables, and it wouldn't hurt...

Fab for cocktails with friends, loved the roof terrace although can get awfully busy. Prices are a bit more than other places, so go at happy hour!
