The irony of having introverts and hangouts in the same sentence is not lost on me. I’d even say it is funny.As a matter of fact, everyone has got to have fun now and again. In addition, introversion is cool. However, intro version is often a misunderstood state of being.
Introverts can be described as people who expend mental energy by being around other people and replenish that same energy by doing things alone.
Loving your own thought space and not wanting to be interrupted by other people can be a fun thing. Come to think of it, there are days when even the introvert wants to catch some fun outside their comfort zone. Notably, there are some very cool hangout spots in the city of Lagos for this special set of people who view the world a little differently.
Some of the things greatly loved by introverts are books, music and art. Others add the love of food to that mix, and the places listed in this article have these properties in common, making it the perfect list for any introvert out there.
Check out this list of some of the coolest spots:
