Bars & Pubs

(pubs, bars in Malta, wine bars, snack bars & cafes)

Bars are certainly not in short supply around the resorts and attractions of Malta & Gozo. Beers, wines & spirits are still competitively priced compared with other EU holiday destinations and the choices available are endless. Branded spirits are offered along with ‘local’ double shots as an alternative for a similar price. Many options also apply to the types of bars available, i.e….with live music, with live sports screened,with sun terrace etc. The main attractions of each bar can be noted from its listing below. Many of the places will also offer food and snacks. Why not try some of Malta’s award winning wines or its world famous award winning lager, Cisk (pronounced ‘chisk’) while on your holiday in the Maltese Islands.
