Our Top 10 Bars and Hangouts in Malta

Malta in summer is definitely a wonderful place to be and we’re lucky enough that the Book2Sail offices are based here. Since it’s Friday and the beautiful season is officially here, we thought that it was the ideal time to round up our top 10 bars and hangouts on the island. There’s a great mix of options so we’re sure there’s something for the party goer and the whiskey connoisseur alike.

The name says it all: it’s the hangout right on the water’s edge. With an expansive outdoor area and stunning views of St. Paul’s Islands, this place is perfect for a day by the infinity pool but more importantly, it’s perfect for chill-out music and cocktails in the evening.

2. Hugo’s Terrace

Perhaps one of the most known spots in Malta’s nightlife capital, Paceville. Hugo’s Terrace is an incredibly popular spot that incorporates lounge areas, two bars, and a dance floor. Oh, and the gorgeous beach views from the rooftop terrace don’t hurt either.

Here’s another option for Hugo’s franchise in Paceville but, with a more laid-back vibe. This a great place for a pint of beer, pub fare and sometimes live acoustic performances too.

4.MedAsia Playa

MedAsia Playa fuses (as you may have already guessed) Mediterranean and Asian flavors into one cool beach club that is a wonderful choice during the day and a perfect option for cocktails at sunset.

Situated in the heart of Strait Street (THE original nightlife epicenter of Malta) StrEAT is every whiskey connoisseur’s dream come true since the curated selection of whiskeys is not something that you’ll find in your typical bar.  And let’s not forget that StrEAT is also a fantastic place to eat a juicy burger if you happen to be hungry.

6. Cafe Jubilee

With locations in Valletta and Gżira, Café Jubilee is perfect for after-work drinks and it’s also great at lunchtime when you really, really, need a big plate of pasta to get you through the rest of your day.

Another popular option in Paceville, the essence of this hangout is defined through three keywords: meats, beats, and drinks… it certainly doesn’t seem like a bad way to spend a Saturday evening to us.

8.Monte Carlo Lounge

This is another specialist bar in Valletta but the star of the show here is gin. The selection of gin is astounding (200 types of gin and 42 types of tonic water!) and any gin aficionado is bound to feel like a kid in a candy store here. Spiced Gin? Check. Cream Gin? Check. Persian Peach Gin? Check too.
