PULL UP AFTER WORK AT SLICKS LOUNGE & BAR, VGC, LAGOS
The past few weeks haven’t permitted me any moment of fun, all I do is shut down my work station and knock off the next knackered minute I make it home. Last I checked, I have attended a couple of events during the workweek and comfortably functioned with no hangover or anything the next day.
Sa’eedah what is wrong?? I can answer to an abysmal lack of motivation that I have never experienced before in my whole working life but I still couldn’t find the reasons why and where the unseen pressure was coming from. Nothing or nobody has been able to uplift my spirit because nobody is aware the forces I’ve been fighting within. Let’s say I am doing quite fine on the surface and leave it there.
On this Friday I made it to Slicks Lounge and Bar, it was on a ride home from work then I thought why not. It’s been a place that the fancy lights had attracted me many times to drop by but tiredness never let me. You can see the lights from this rooftop bar behind Heyden filling station/Chicken Republic at VGC junction when you are going towards Ajah.
I knew on settling on one of their comfy cushions that my intention of having a subtle night would be achieved. I did not need noise or any hyperactivity and thankfully I did not get. The scenery at Slicks Lounge and Bar is breathtaking, can’t deny that.
An attendant on a nice white shirt and sneakers appeared in a snap. Her accuracy on how long the fries would take to be served was on point. She wasn’t any of those unhappy attendants one could run into, she was indeed calm as she went back and forth, and I can say that of other attendants too.
The simple fact that the drink appeared in a blink made me comfortable already. Nothing could have made me decide to seek elsewhere with the beautiful setup and the customer service they had going there. You know I live for that. I could tell that the place was people’s choice by the population of people and activities going on there.
I should have stated earlier in full details that the bar, being a rooftop with the nice view of VGC and Lekki Epe expressway has a club downstairs, a restaurant with welcoming decor on the next floor and even sit-out settings where you can point your yummy grill. The car park can house an average number of vehicles depending on the population, and there is an assumable safe space outside when the club pours out later at night.
I don’t want to sing all these unpaid accolades without wondering why their wines were that pricey and why the funny glass of cocktail with a supposed blend of Campari suggested by the nice attendant tasted below standard.
The barbecued fish came at a fair price I did not frown at but with a bit more of seasoning or salt than desired. Could that have been a mere kitchen malfunction I should overlook? Sarcasm made me think the sauce was a consolation to the over-seasoned fish because it came with a sharp taste of little or no seasoning at all.
In spite of this, I made sure to enjoy myself because that was the plan. I humbly ordered for a bottle of Star Radlar within a fair price range to down my fish. This did not stop more people from popping in twos and groups, neither will it stop me from going another time because the ambience is a relaxing one I deserve after some working days.
I think I should have more beer and try something else from their kitchen when next I go. My friend had 2 bottles of Heineken at a reasonable amount too.
Slicks Lounge and Bar is located at Plot 07A, Road 7A, VGC, Ajah, Lagos. It is very easy to navigate. You can try them.
