The Coffee Studio – Coworking café

In the heart of Lagos, The Coffee Studio is a place internationals like to conglomerate and enjoy some nice drinks and snacks while clacking away on the keyboard.

This is a good place for casual work, though serious work and business meetings where privacy is important is best done elsewhere as it’s often quite busy. If you want a good café which has great food and drinks, The Coffee Studio is an inviting place!

The Coffee Studio also has a second location in Luz which has opening hours of 8:00-15:00 all week and is often more quiet than the other coworking cafés listed.

  1. Hello Lagos Nomads,

    My name is Inês and I’m contacting you from CoLagos.

    First of all we would like to thank you for including us on your platform.

    We are contacting you because we noticed that in the text about CoLagos you mention that our space is located in the Teatro Experimental, but we are not. We are located on the same street, but next door, door number 6, they are two different spaces.

    Thank you for your attention.

    Best Regards,
    Inês Rodrigues
