    Bogobiri II/Nimbus

    Part of Bogobiri House, this is a lovely place for a drink (and eat) – mellow in the day and happening at night. There's an attached art gallery with works from local artists, and at weekends there's live music. At the open mic night on a Thursday you'll hear some astonishing young musicians.

    Elegushi Beach

    Dancing bumper-to-bumper, bottles of the hard stuff – the party does not get better than Elegushi Beach on a Sunday night. Go with a local; there have been robberies. Not for the faint of heart. During the day, pay a fee (N1000) to enjoy the semi-private beach.

    Vapours

    Starts late, gets good even later. Nigeria's elites, socialites and pop stars come here for the post-party partying. If you get the munchies, head across the street, outside the gate of 1004 Housing Estates, to Chopbox; it's always open.
