Abuja's nightlife scene lags far behind Nigeria's other main tourist and business destination Lagos', yet still features a few decent bars where tourists can unwind after a hard day's sightseeing. Unfortunately, most of Abuja's nightlife remains rather segregated between bars frequented by expats and 'local bars' - which aren't considered completely safe for visitors to Abuja. A good bet is the Elephant Bar (attached to the Sheraton Hotel), where the drinks may be overpriced, but at least there is always some great live music going on.
