“With its white sunbed mattresses and infinity pool, Cafe del Mar breathes luxury. It is a day- and night-time venue for stylish twenty-something socialites, who flock here to parade designer swim suits and savour elegant cocktails to lounge music and some of the best sunsets on the island. ”

“Zeppies Pub is the hangout spot for locals, tourist, & expats alike. The pub is a great place to grab a hot espresso & toast in the mornings before going to explore the island. Friday-Sundays starting between 8-9pm there is a variety of live music. Zeppies draws a great crowed at night, always a good time.”

Bar
“This quirky little bar overflows on the street at weekends, especially in summer. Get there early for one of the pink velvet armchairs in the alley outside. Tico Tico is a less seedy reincarnation of the original bar (of the same name) on this site that until the 1970s entertained sailors with drinks, floor shows and other services. Strait Street used to be known as 'The Gut' and was full of sailors' bars. After the Royal Navy left Malta, the area fell into dereliction. Tico Tico was one of the first in a new breed of places there.”

“Historically the darkest, sleaziest part of Strait Street, also labelled ‘The Gut’ - the old red light district of Valletta, and home to notorious hangouts such as Silver Horse, Blue Peter and James Bond, has come back to life after 50 odd years of neglect. The Gut is a high-end 
restaurant and bar hub where fine dining, music, theater, cabaret, dance, and architecture all come together between two walls 
and on three dimensions.”
