Enjoy a drink in this historic city.

Valletta by night is a marvellous experience. The city streets take on a warm, golden tone and the sounds of joyful chatter fills the air. In recent years, the capital has undergone a regeneration and is now one of the most popular destinations for nightlife in Malta. But you won’t find many kids running around – it’s more of a sophisticated crowd that prefers to spend their evening in this historic city. Here are some of the best Valletta bars to enjoy a drink in the city during your stay:

Cheeky Monkey Gastropub

The island’s foremost destination for a fun-loving crowd, the Cheeky Monkey Gastropub serves a variety of naughty drinks and delicious food. It’s the perfect place to start your evening!


If you’re looking for a place to combine great food and wines, why not try Grain Street. All the wines are served by the glass, so that you can taste as many as you like. Similarly, the menu doesn’t follow the traditional 3-course order, so you can choose your favourite plates to share. It’s a great concept for enjoying dinner with a difference!

Alchemy Cocktail Bar

This venue, located on Strait Street, is sophisticated and stylish, just like its cocktails! The bartenders know how to conjure up delicious and creative cocktails, not the sort you’ll find everywhere. Although on the pricey side, it’s worth visiting if you’re the adventurous type.
