LitCaf (the social club where books are the liquors).







In Nigeria, there are many places for the lovers of music, wine and other forms of entertainment to unwind or socialize but there is hardly a place for the lovers of books to share information or pick a book to read under a relaxing and socially stimulating environment.  

The Literary Café or LitCaf Nigeria can be described as the social club where books are the liquors, where the music is not deafening, where the lights are not so dimmed, where the dancing steps are the gesticulations of individuals who have come to socialize under an intellectual milieu. It is the
place where the pickup line of a gentleman to a lady is not just ‘can I buy you a drink’ but also is ‘have you read the book by John Maxwell?’ 

The Literary Cafe is different from private library in being sensitive to the things that will make book reading an enjoyable experience to the people. Unlike libraries, there will be in the literary cafe soft music, chatting, eating, and even the chance to meet with invited personalities on occasions.
Other services beyond the physical cafe, includes the planning, research, writing and representation of work. 


LitCaf promote worthy books with indelible values. Please find below how you may like to engage them:

Publishing firms- There is room for publishers of any genre to liaise in the publicity of their books. . LitCaf Nigeria  will accept only publications fitting to its definition of good literature and which may have been suitably certified by recognized bodies.

Corporate Organizations- they facilitate capacity development for company staffs subscribed to LitCaf Nigeria through recurrent seminars.


Institutions- LitCaf Nigeria moderates and provides the avenue for students from different institutions to connect with the aim of having debates, discussions and other inter-school activities.


Public Officials and Figures- they provide the worthy connect between public officials and the public through talk shows and through the coordination of polls and surveys.


Individuals- they organize book parties every fortnight; an avenue for book lovers to connect, discuss and enjoy books which may have been voted in preceding  parties to be the highlight of the day. 

LitCaf is the place where even better histories are written. They go out on occasions, taking their events around the city. 
Back in the café, they will be having smaller versions of those events. But  the literary cafe is not only about talk shows; 
it is a place where individuals across ages all ages can come Mondays to Saturdays, 8am to 11pm to enjoy our light dishes. 
Their ice cream and desserts will only make your reading more wonderful. 

In LitCaf, you get a chance to talk to people like you. 
Who knows; you might just grab an idea that will make us want to invite you to share your thoughts. 
And be sure that they love music as much as you do! Looking forward  to seeing you at the hippest Café in town.

LitCafe is located on the 2nd floor Ozone Cinema, Yaba, Lagos, Nigeria.
