This is a well-stocked bookshop and music store based on the bustling Awolowo Rd, however to the rear there is a small cafe with space to 8 to 10 people. The cafe has a small menu of sandwiches, coffee, teas and cold drinks and a rotating menu of specials. The bookshop itself is something of a mecca for those interested in Lagos’ rich musical heritage. Despite its discrete frontage inside is a veritable Aladdin’s cave of cd’s books, arts and current affairs magazines and the Glendora review a quarterly African publication of books arts and culture. There are also a range of European and North American titles like Monocle for those looking for business information. Here Lagosians and a steady trickle of expats sit and ‘giss’ (gossip) or browse the copious fiction and culture titles. In the evenings there are often recitals and live gigs, check with staff for more information. Owner Kunle is an established figure in the Lagos music scene and something of an expert on Highlife, the rhythmic beating heart of Ghana and Nigeria, it’s well worth stopping by and picking his brains in order to see if there are any interesting nights or events taking place.
