Lagos (Nigeria) is one city that has the latent power to be different things at various times in the year. The Lagos discovered in January (new year) will certainly not be the Lagos to be experienced in October (Nigerian Independence Day). As the seasons change, so do the vibrations and hype.

Take December, for example.

In December, this bustling city becomes a whole new location. With Christmas decorations and lights all over the city, the holiday feeling and magic cannot be denied. Everything seems bigger, better, brighter, louder. Bursting to the seams with concerts and gourmet dining options, tourism and hospitality churning out life changing specials — all that is left to do is simply: sample and enjoy.
And here, the million dollar (sorry, naira) question. Sample and enjoy what, exactly?

For true connoisseurs of luxury and all things divine, relax — you have struck gold. Our boutique hotel five point guide to what’s hot in Lagos this special December season is all you need to enjoy the best of the holiday festivities — at little or no cost whatsoever.
Yes, because with a little help, some of the best things in life can almost be free during Decembers in Lagos.

New Afrika Shrine Grooving

You have to visit The New Afrika Shrine, a bonafide Lagos entertainment hot spot. Tribute to Afrobeat Legend Fela Anikulakpo Kuti, his children keep it bubbly by giving the best live shows. Femi Kuti plays on Thursdays and Sundays, Seun Kuti plays every last Saturday of the month. Loved by expatriates and adored by locals, no dull moments exist here.

Outdoor Movies

Movies are always a great way to amp up the holiday feeling. The Lagos State Parks and Gardens Agency have introduced a Movie in the Park series at Muri Okunola Park just for the outdoor movie enjoyment vibe. More elaborate arrangements get people to either gather at Tarkwa Bay for movies (and games) all night long or standing screenings in the Ikoyi environs.
