Aside being a gallery, Omenka has a garden that is an incredible relaxation spot, a welcoming waterfront that brings you peace immediately you step in. Serene atmosphere, gentle breeze, occasional bird chirps and a drinks’ bar to soothe your mind and ease your stress away. You have an holistic experience from enjoying the arts displayed inside and the natural bliss you encounter outside.

Omenka is perceived as an exclusive art gallery but it is open to the public for visitation from Monday – Friday, 9am – 6pm and 10am – 4pm on Saturdays at 21, Ikoyi crescent (by the American Consulate) Ikoyi, Lagos .
