    Jazz Hole

    An offspring of the great Glendora Books, Jazz Hole is primarily a book and record store. In this oasis of calm in the mile-a-minute city, sip tea in the lovely cafe and get cultural lessons from the proprietor – ask to see his own book about Abeokuta. Special events and performances in the evenings.
