When it comes to drinks, the city of Lagos is the place to be.
The capital of Lagous, Lagos boasts a thriving culture, a vibrant music scene, and a vibrant nightlife.
However, the bars in the city center are still struggling to maintain their place in the community, which has been experiencing a drastic decrease in tourism.
As a result, many bars and clubs are struggling to stay afloat.
That’s why the city’s top bar owners are calling on the local government to make it easier for the locals to find quality drinks.
“The people who are doing the best job in the country are the ones who are creating quality drinks,” said the owner of Lagoso Bar and Grill, who wished to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation.
The owner added that Lagos’ bars are now better able to cater to the needs of the locals because of the city government’s policies.
“People here like us are getting the best drinks and the best food,” he said.
The owners of the bars are also aware that Lagoso has been in the news for its high rate of drunk driving, with one local bar owner stating that the number of cars in the neighborhood has been steadily increasing for the past few years.
However that doesn’t mean that the city has no problems with alcohol consumption.
According to the police chief, it is the local residents who are driving the increase in drunk driving in the area, not the bars.
“We know that people are driving drunk in the streets and there is a lot of people in this area,” he added.
“They are not just driving drunk, they are drunk.
And it is not just the cars, there are many people who don’t realize that it is illegal to drive drunk in this part of the world.”
Many of the Lagos bar owners also stated that the local alcohol industry has been doing a lot better since the government launched its policies regarding alcohol.
“I am a local businessman, and I have to pay taxes, so I am not able to hire the people who work in the local liquor industry,” said an owner of a local bar.
The Lagos government, however, is not willing to listen to the bar owners, and is threatening to punish them for not following its policies.
As of right now, there is no specific legislation regarding alcohol consumption in the state.
According a government official, the government is considering introducing a new law that will be applicable to bars and restaurants in Lagoses city.
“If we don’t do something about it, it will affect us in the long run,” he stated.
However the owners of Lagas bars are not happy about the threat.
“What I am saying is that we have done a lot for our community, but it is being attacked because we are not following the law,” said one of the owners.
“It is being done by people who have no idea about the city and what is going on in the world,” he continued.
The local bar owners have been trying to hold up their end of the bargain.
They are planning to go back to work in three months and have enough money to keep them afloat, but they don’t want to be seen as irresponsible.
“You don’t have to drink in front of other people, but the people you are drinking with should be treated equally,” said another owner of the bar.
“Even if we were to go to jail, the bar would not be closed,” he also added.
One of the other Lagos bars owners who is not a local, told Al Jazeera that it would be nice if the government was more open in its policies towards alcohol consumption and alcohol industry.
“There are many things we can do to save Lagos, but we need to keep our heads high,” he insisted.
The lack of government regulations has left Lagos as the only city in Africa with no laws regarding alcohol in the capital.
As the bar owner added, there should be more government oversight and regulation of alcohol.
For the time being, the local bar is still in a precarious situation.
“But it is okay because we know that the government will come for us in three weeks,” he told Al Jazeeras.
