Adrenaline Sports Bar Flatters to Deceive

Adrenaline Sports Bar

Plot 9/10 Block 2, Oniru Estate, Victoria Island, Lagos.

01 448 9444

FOLLY: I first heard about this place a couple of years ago, when one of my guy friends moved back to Lagos and he was really into Adrenaline. That was until they broke his window when he was parked outside and stole his laptop; I don't think he's ever been back since. I also immediately lost all interest following that incident because in the evening it's hard to get a parking space inside Four Points.

NOSA: I have an immense unexplainable hatred for Four Points. From the point you have to pop your hood for security to getting through the metal detector at the entrance to not finding a power outlet in the lobby because it's for guests only, I hate everything.

FOLLY: I also feel like Adrenaline is also a little secret for those who are regulars because I don't think many people know it and there's also not too much noise on it. 

NOSA: I think people know, but Four Points is just too stressful of an establishment

FOLLY: I liked the decor at Adrenaline, particularly the dark wood. I wasn't a fan of the low chairs are and the tiny tables, however. 

NOSA: In its defense, it's a proper sports bar in every sense.

FOLLY: I was trying to be a rebel and I ordered a concoction cocktail listed on their menu. It's called the Seven Step and it had in it: gin, vodka, tequila, rum, Cointreau, creme de cassis and white wine. 

You read that right, 7 types of alcohol and no mixer. I should kuku have drank rat poison since I wanted to die. I honestly thought the white wine would function as a mixer and make it drinkable but boy was I wrong.

NOSA: Because you definitely need to order it when you find out Mourinho dropped Martial for another senseless reason.

FOLLY: After exactly two sips, I ordered a sprite and diluted this drink and it became awesome. It's a lot stronger than a Long Island and if you're ever trying to get drunk very very quickly, this is the ONE.

FOLLY: To eat I ordered the Famous Full House (aka the house special burger) which when it arrived looked like one of those burgers I see on food porn Instagram pages. I was very excited because we've been doing this for 2 plus years and little did I know I could find one of those burgers in little old Lagos. 

NOSA: This is definitely the best looking worst burger in Lagos

FOLLY: Sadly, the burger looked much better than it tasted. The sum of the whole wasn't great so I'll break it down to its parts. The onion rings and the patty were a bit bland, and the patty in particular, was very dry. 

NOSA: The onion rings were really soggy and the patty smelt off.

FOLLY: I liked the bacon and the bun, and I felt they should have grilled the mushrooms instead and had a little bit more cheese. 

NOSA: Yeah, the mushrooms were straight from a can.

FOLLY: They definitely forgot Nosa's fish on the fire. 

NOSA: For a second, I thought it came out looking like that by design, but nope, they burnt it.

NOSA: The plating left a lot to be desired, but on a scale of important things, I think that's at the bottom. There were more important things at play here, like the fact the fish was BURNT again.

 

POSTSCRIPT

FOLLY: A nice place to grab a drink with friends. Their food is not amazing but it's good for what it is. 

NOSA: It's the sports bar equivalent of putting lipstck on a pig
