Nightlife activities in Lagos never really end, even though they are majorly restricted to the weekends. They just take breaks, and then return with more pizzaz. Raving nightclubs and bars line the streets of Victoria Island, with some other highly rated ones scattered around neighborhoods in Ikoyi, Lekki, and Ikeja. Cubana, Spice Route, Escape, Rumours, and Velvett are just a few of the many locations that sizzle on weekend nights, bumping music that makes you never want to leave the dance floor. Other nightclubs such as Cova and Cocoon Sundaze operate especially on Sundays to cater exclusively to those who either still have energy to spare, or prefer Sunday nights out.
