NOSA: For some reason, "Day Drinking" isn't really a thing in Lagos. You people love your night rocks in your various dens of iniquities way too much.
FOLLY: It pains me to admit this but I can't really hang like that anymore for night time rocks, so I'm all about day time festivities and outdoor activities now.
NOSA: Don't worry about it though. Eat.Drink.Lagos is here to save the day. We have built the only Day Drinking itinerary you'll ever need.
NOSA: First things first, you need to be safe. Don't drive around drunk. Na beg we dey beg you. Get a designated driver or a taxi for the day. If you don't have an Uber, sign up with our little uber code.
Now that's sorted...
Place - Cafe Royale
NOSA: Shoutout to @TheBlackHermit for this tip. Cafe Royale might be the only place with alcohol that opens early. A shame NAFDAC has put them under pressure. #FreeCafeRoyale.
FOLLY: Their margaritas are the real deal. Strong, but not impossible to drink, and icey, but not watered down. I wonder how they do it. NAFDAC should please allow Cafe Royal upstairs to re-open but Chocolat Royale should probably stay shut, their pastries taste like they were baked 2 years ago.
NOSA: Chocolat Royale and their scraps macarons that taste like Okin "four-corner" need to be banished forever.
Drink - Pineapple Margarita
Place - The Foundry
NOSA: At this point, you probably need to eat and you can get a half decent Full English at The Foundry. This isn't a timeout, your drinking isn't over.
FOLLY: You could also try the Smart Naija, it's usually a virgin drink but you can ask for it to be made with a splash of rum.
Drink - Mexican Beer
Place - 355
NOSA: Time to get back on track with the drinking. Your next move is 355.
FOLLY: Since you're not trying to finish all your money, if I were you I'd pass on the Worst Behaviour and do a wahalarita instead.
NOSA: If you drink the worst behaviour, just call it a day. Bank balance ghost.
Drink - Wahalarita
Place - RSVP
NOSA: Time for a little lunch break. The key to day drinking is proper hydration and food. You're trying to get drunk, not die abeg.
FOLLY: The pomegranate seeds are my favourite part of this drink.
Drink - Copa del Lebanon
Place - Posh Cafe
NOSA: Last stop for the day is Posh Cafe. Don't worry about the food here, just get you some shisha and a drink.
FOLLY: And dessert, they have a couple of options here. Reward yourself with that extra slice of cake, you've earned it....in a way.
NOSA: You've hit the final stretch and you're not dead. You're probably unbelievably drunk, but you're not dead. Victory is yours, brother.
Drink - Henny Berry
