A Night on the Town

SurulereNow! recently visited the Ayo Bankole Centre for Arts and Cultural Expression on one of its Karaoke nights, which are held every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 7pm onwards. Fridays are reserved for a cabaret gig featuring different genres of music, while the last Sunday of the month is termed ‘Jazz and Old School with Ayo Bankole and Friends’. Located at 32 Yesufu Sanusi St, off Adeniran Ogunsanya, this tastefully furnished lounge bar seats about 50 people comfortably.

Cold drinks and hot pepper soup are available, along with barbecued chicken. According to Bankole himself, ABC, as it is popularly known, ‘was established primarily as an arts centre with the aim of promoting music in particular and the arts in general and to be a vehicle for influencing youths and the society positively.’ Below are some of the pictures we took of the evening we spent watching the patrons express themselves.
