Entertainment & Nightlife in Nigeria

There is a wide range of bars, cafes and clubs all over Nigeria. Abuja and other tourist resorts in Nigeria have some of the most popular clubs in the country. There are nightclubs in many of the hotels in Lagos and in the Surulere district. There is nightlife in other towns, however, due to socio-cultural and religious differences, some areas have a more subdued nightlife. Some clubs have live entertainment, details of which are given in the local newspapers. North of Oyo in Ogbomosho, there is a lively market, particularly in the evenings. Local festivals which generally take place in the summer months provide a good opportunity to see dancing, music and traditional costumes.

The former capital city of Lagos has the dubious distinction of being the second largest city in Africa, ranking just below Cairo in its vastness. With its endless crowds, severe traffic congestion, shocking pollution and strong currents of danger, this chaotic urban jungle can be overwhelming to visitors, but those willing to give the city a chance will be rewarded with some unique and valuable experiences. The city has a thriving nightlife encompassing a colossal number nightclubs and live music venues that offer a jumble of musical influences blended harmoniously into the unique riffs and rhythms of West Africa.

For live music in Lagos, King Sunny Ade (the best-known performer of West Nigerian juju music) performs occasionally at the MUSON Centre when he isn't on tour. Femi Kuti, son of the late Afrobeat star Fela Kuti, carries on his father's music at the New Afrika Shrine Club. He usually plays on Sunday night when he's in Lagos and is sometimes accompanied by his 12-year-old son who can play several instruments.

Pat's Place on Victoria Island is popular with Lagos' expatriate community for its pub-like atmosphere. Serving imported drinks and simple food like steak and kidney pie or chicken and chips, it also has a large screen for watching sport. On the weekends, they sometimes have music and a disco. The enormous Kuramo Sports Café, in the Eko Hotel on Victoria Island, has several decks and bars decorated in a sporting theme. It has large screens showing important matches and music videos.
