Nightlife in Malta & Nightclubs in Malta

(Nightlife & night clubs in Malta, casinos & gaming, Paceville clubs)

If your preference is for dancing, nightlife and gambling, Malta will certainly be able to accommodate you. Most of the Malta holiday resorts offer nightclubs of varying themes & musical tastes with the largest concentration of all being in Malta’s ‘party capital’ of Paceville. (part of St Julians) Clubbing in Malta begins from 10pm usually with peak times between 12am and 4am. (Sundays & Public Holidays often mean that clubs will host afternoon clubbers parties around the pool in the warmer months) Some clubs are ‘smart casual’ but many will insist on a full dress code if you want to enter. Visiting DJ’s, special events & famous guests are regular occurrences throughout the year too. A few of the most popular clubs are ‘open air’ venues which open during the summer months only. Nightlife can also be found in many of the bars across the Islands so make sure you check out our bars page as well. Although there are fewer casinos to be found, the ones that are available are very popular. The main ones can be found in Qawra and St Julians/Paceville. Aside from the gaming areas and machines, the casinos offer live music and theme nights with buffet food also available, in fact everything you’ll need to make the most of your evenings while on holiday in Malta. Smart dress code for evenings is usually required in Malta’s casinos & the minimum age for gambling is 18 for visitors but age 25 for Maltese citizens. ID/Passport will be required on your first visit.
