Fun prohibition-era decor and great cocktails. Favourite of customers who like the no TV, no cigarette machine, lots of chat atmosphere. Attracts varied crowd, e.g. foreign IT workers, locals, tourists.

Really impressive cocktailbar at the hill. The owner makes her bar really personal and puts all her love and time in her authentic made cocktails. Worth your time and money.

Wonderful little bar in the heart of Balluta Bay. Both Peter and Wang Wang are tremendous hosts. Highly recommend.

Good, old jazz playing. Lovely old chairs to relax in. Great cocktails made to old recipes. Try the Singapore Sling. If you are lucky (we were) a regular will bring in spicy chicken wings! Live music on Tuesday evenings (we missed it!)

In Malta at moment and stumbled across this gem of a pub by accident! Thought the name implied it might show "Irish sports" as there is a final on Sunday! We were happily wrong! Gorgeous little bar with very quirky prohibition style interior. Great selection...More

Wonderfully small and quirky place. It is a bit like 'Cheers' (bar in old US sitcom) in that it has its locals (sadly no Norm), but not exclusionary (like 'American Werewolf in London' pub). I got there fairly early (NB opens at 7.30 pm- give...More

I read the reviews and was excited to visit, but when handed the cocktail menu I was slightly disappointed... Seemed like pretty standard, traditional cocktails. I ordered the Scofflaw (a whisky based drink) and in one sip was bowled over... This drink is incredibly mixed...More
