This is Miliki

This is Miliki

Miliki is an endearing and creative, yet somewhat elusive space for the individual seeking an alternative scene for conducive conversation flow. It is for those in search of a calm and aesthetically pleasing environment to gather their thoughts and commune with those of like minds. Miliki is a classy exclusive lounge in the heart of Victoria Island – a haven for the one who craves art, serenity and beauty.

Mr Patrick Koshoni sought such an environment – something for the individual who may need a place to hang out; one that is not overwhelmed by loud music, that does not require you purchase items just so you can relax, that is not full to the brim, that allows you to learn and grow and blossom, that provides opportunity to meet people and to engage. The music played is a compilation of deep house, high life and classic jazz.

The Miliki experience begins when you walk to the gate, which is adorned with the head of a lion. You ring the bell and a polite attendant comes to address you and allow you entrance to the private building. You follow him and your eyes are drawn to the left by the gorgeous arrangement of shrubbery. At which point you are taken to the reception where Miliki lies in bold across the wall, just in case you’re so taken in by the visual feast that you forget where you are.

Miliki lounge comprises the outdoor bar and sitting area, the garden, the reception, the white space – for gallery exhibitions, corporate events and the like; and the lounge – an alluring setting bathed in warm golden lights and highlights. The walls are lined with bookshelves filled with a wide variety of books and framed art. There are clusters of comfortable sofas and armchairs for members to relax in.

The lounge boasts inspiration from the roads of high-end London to the bustling streets of Lagos. In the décor and arrangement of the room, you will find elements of contemporary Western, vintage, and of traditional Africa. I was pleased to discover that the vintage items – the dial telephone, the gramophone – are functional.

Milki lounge also offers an extensive menu, for those members who would like to eat. I had the honour of trying out one of the cocktails and was delighted with the taste. It was refreshing, and had a little bit of a tang. It is just one of the drinks created by Milki. In other words, you won’t find it anywhere else.

Membership to the lounge is open to anyone above the age of 25. The membership fee is affordable and is there to ensure that those who want to be members are committed to the lounge. The experience of Miliki is certainly worth the cost. Miliki is a place you can forget yourself in; the music, the calming beige and cream colours, as well as, the art, combine to take you outside of the daily hustle and bustle of Lagos.
