The end of an era…

Yesterday marked the end of a three-year era of bottomless ladies’ nights, brunches and late-night boogies at Baby Q. This purple-hued venue, perched on the 43rd floor of Media One Hotel, gave its final drinks to a loyal following before closing its doors forever.

Baby Q

Baby Q first opened it’s doors on Thursday September 17 2020, quickly becoming a famed afterword drinks spot, a place for ladies to let their hair down, or go for a boogie on the weekend. During the day this plush venue also was used as a place to meet for coffee, business meetings and a quick buiz lunch.

If Media City is still your regular stomping ground, then not to fret, as there are still plenty of other venues that will fulfil your needs.
