Michael’s bar sits at the bottom of Adetokumbo Adewola Street in a plot directly facing the Atlantic beach and the reclaimed land of the Ekko Atlantic project.
There is a small ‘pub’ setting similar to a snug on one side of the bar, whilst the remaining larger bar area is split over three floors. The upper of these floors is given over to diners and a VIP room, whilst the remainder is given over to bar stools and a number of booths. Walls are covered in sports memorabilia with a special spot reserved for a framed print of Nigerian NBA legend Hakeem Olajuwon. Friday and Saturday nights see a range of live bands and DJs.
As you would expect, this place caters for premiership games and there a couple of big screen TVs permanently tuned to whatever sports are airing. Clientele are largely expats and as a result there is a small cadre of sex workers lurking, but the atmosphere is generally relaxed and friendly. The continental menu offers a range of pizzas, burgers and pasta, with a cheeseburger coming in at N2500.
It’s a shame Michael’s doesn’t make more of its beachside location. The bar is tucked away behind a hotel so it’s slightly dark, though given the fact it only really comes alive in the evenings, this is not a major loss. For the adventurous it’s worth heading out along the beachfront road to take in the atmosphere, though as usual it’s worth sticking to the well-lit areas after dark.
