Nothing says ‘summer in Malta’ like sipping gorgeous cocktails by the sea as a laid-back afternoon turns into a sultry Mediterranean night. With so many great places to try dotted all over the island, we thought we’d give you a few tips on where to get started when you’re in the mood for a cheeky cocktail (or three).

1 | The Black Sheep, Sliema

Just across the road from the buzzing Sliema seafront, you’ll find The Black Sheep – a cute little lounge serving up some great food and drinks to the hungry (and thirsty) masses. Oh, did we mention the happy hour?

2 | Hugo’s Lounge, Paceville

If you’re looking to be right in the heart of Malta’s entertainment district for a night of stunning drinks and a bit of dancing, then look no further than Hugo’s Lounge in Paceville. There’s a happy hour, delicious Asian cuisine, and sumptuous platters – what else could you possibly need?


3 | StrEat Whisky Bar & Bistro, Valletta

Our stunning capital city is the perfect backdrop to any drinks-date, day or night! Check out StrEat in bustling Strait Street for some divine cocktails and a fully-stocked whisky bar just waiting to be sampled.


4 | Cafe’ Society, Valletta

Another little gem located in one of Valletta’s many side streets, Cafe’ Society offers its patrons a refreshing alternative to your typical bars and lounges. The best way to enjoy your ice-cold cocktail is to grab a chair (or comfy cushion) and sit yourself out on the smooth, well-worn steps outside!


5 | Zion Reggae Bar, Marsaskala

Venture down to Malta’s idyllic south for something different at Zion, a chilled out bar complete with delicious cocktails, yummy food, and a beautiful sea view.


6 | The Thirsty Barber, Paceville

Hidden behind a vintage-style phone booth in Paceville, you’ll find the entrance to Malta’s first ever prohibition-era bar – The Thirsty Barber. A visit to this beautiful bar will be rewarded with some of the most over-the-top cocktails you’ve ever seen, and a classy night out you won’t forget any time soon – unless you order too many of those pretty drinks!
