Gudu is a burgeoning middle-class enclave of Abuja that’s located about 7km from the city centre. Like many parts of Abuja, it’s experiencing huge growth in both the residential and commercial sectors, and a number of new bars and restaurants have recently sprung up.
The best of these is Baytown. It’s not worth a trip from the centre of Abuja in its own right (unless it’s a weekend evening), but it’s convenient for those staying in Gudu and the nearby Best Western Ajuji Hotel.
It’s a large wooden-beamed thatched cabana with low rattan blinds and wooden furniture, set within a low courtyard and bandstand beset with small palms. In the daytime, it’s a sleepy relaxed spot with a good range of continental, Chinese, and Nigerian dishes (N1500-3500). Staff are a little distracted, but nothing that impacts on the overall feel of the place. At night and especially on weekends it can be hard to find a table with a couple of hundred lively Abujans partying outside to a live band or in the small club to the rear of the property. It manages to have the feel of a beach bar or suya stand in the midst of this modern, planned city.
In a city which can have the reputation of being a little sterile, this place manages to keep up the colour and vibrancy that makes Nigerian nightlife famous, As such, it’s a popular spot for locals and visitors alike.
