The atmosphere has really been tensed since the whole coronavirus started in Nigeria, March 2020, and people were beginning to test positive to the virus. This affected a lot of aspects of the economy as there was a total shutdown of activities in Kaduna State. Spots and hangouts were not excluded either as a result of the State being on lockdown. After the lockdown, some of the hangouts have to be shut down, some relocated, while others parked up due to low or no patronage as a result of a hike in a lot of products. Even in the phase of all these challenges and changes, a lot of people still look for a spot to relax and let go of the worries of life.
If you are in Kaduna, there is really a good spot to relax and laugh out not some but all of your worries with a nice bottle of wine, a good meal to tag along with.
