This is the place where Malta night clubs and bars are located. There are places where you can dine and continue the night as well like Hugos. If you want to dance and enjoy your nights in Malta, you should definitely go there

Though we quite like to go out at night, this is not our "cup of tea". We had a look round and left without visiting any place in particular. For Germans: Comparable to "Ballermann" in Palma de Mallorca. If that is what you like, then maybe it is good fun. Better not go there during the day. The small beach... More

We found Paceville to be good fun. It is what it is and it is obviously not for people who aren't into going to pubs or clubs. It is very safe and there is a strong police presence in the area. We stayed until well into the early morning and didn't see any trouble.

Noisy, so didn't stay in that area for long.I quote from the Lonely Planet guide book for Malta "The tidal wave of alcohol and testosterone that swills through the streets of Paceville on weekends....is a nuisance!"

The area in the daytime offers a shopping mall but it certainly comes alive at night. There is a virtually complete road of "Gentlemen's" clubs as well as the music bars. If this is not your scene the area can easily be circumvented.
