Today, we have put together our top 5 places featuring must visit clubs, lounges and tourist attractions in 5 states in the country. So whether you’re looking to escape hours or traffic or are in search of an epic night out, we have the best suggestions for you!
Rufus And Bee (Lagos)
Rufus & Bee is reminiscent of all those family-friendly spots we used to have in Lagos growing up.
To play the wide variety of arcade games they have, all you need to do is buy their Buzzz Card — replacing traditional tokens — which you can load with digital chips. For most of the games available, you stand the chance of winning tickets, which can later be exchanged for gifts.
Rufus & Bee is located at 121 2 TwinWaters Street, Oniru Estate, Lekki.
Kajuru Castle (Kaduna)
Kajuru Castle is a luxury villa located in Kajuru village in Kaduna State. The villa was built in 1989 in early medieval style complete with turrets, armoury and dungeon. It took five years for it to be completed. The Kajuru castle is royalty at its finest in Nigeria. It is important to note that, Kajuru Castle is a tourist attraction, but NOT a resort. You can rent it for as long as you wish.
Formerly known as Wonderland, the magicland is an amusement park that is suitable for everybody. With its leisure gardens used for relaxation, rides and games for different ages, this is definitely a hotspot in Abuja. Among the younger generation, it is a highly sought after place, but it is definitely not restricted to them alone. This park is suitable for family outings and picnics. It is also very close to the national stadium, so it is pretty easy to locate.
Kwa Waterfalls (Calabar)
Kwa Falls is a spectacular waterfall located in a narrow, steep gorge on the headwaters of the Kwa. Kwa River where Kwa Fall cascades down resistant basement rocks, is located in the Oban division of the Cross River National Park. A deep plunge pool forms at the bottom of the waterfall which is characterised by its well arranged staircase of 234 steps from the top to bottom. The nearby Kwa River Sand Beach is the icing on the cake, making Kwa falls, Nigeria’s own tropical paradise.
Cubana Lounge (Port Harcourt)
Everyone knows Cubana as a lounge. But most people do not know that Cubana offers the best grilled fish in Port Harcourt. Yes, you can get good grilled fish at some other places but there is something heavenly about this place. The only down side is that it may be a bit pricey but it is good value for your money. Eating fish is sacred and you must do it right. It is the same way Bole should be respected and eaten with pepper sauce and not groundnuts.
Another amazing thing about Cubana is the interior design. It has the design of an airplane and sometimes the waiters sometimes are dressed as air hostesses. Talk about flying business class while still being on land. It has different sections and if you decide not to go inside. You can always sit out and chill with your friends.
