“Best bar on the island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

Been going to Malta for many years and we always have a good welcome at Simons bar, the entertainment that he puts on every night is great and simon and Josie are very friendly towards all there customers. We would like to highly recommend this bar to everyone who visits qawra.

“Best FREE entertainment in Malta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

Reading some of the negative reviews about this top class free entertainment venue really amazes me, yes the drinks are slightly more expensive than the ordinary bars surrounding this one BUT where else in Malta can you get top line International artistes for free, how do they think Simon and Josie pay for them and as to the closure in summer months They are entitled to a holiday and summer can be very hot and uncomfortable for artistes to perform indoors.
My wife,I and friends have been going to Simon's for nearly 10 years and some of the acts performing there you would pay through the nose for seeing them on bigger sets.
The Elvis Tribute Artiste is one of the worlds top tribute performers in the business and having seen him probably more than most people he is not only great but consistently note perfect irrespective of colds and sore throats and never lets his public down.
All of the artistes are top of their game, So what do they want for a slight increase in bar prices?
Keep the entertainment going Simon because there is no other venue to match this one.

“Exceptional Elvis tribute performer, live music every night.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

just back from Malta - with return visits to Simon's bar - free live music every night form 9.00 p.m. with the superb Elvis tribute nights Monday and Friday - the entertainment room holds around 70 people and is always full to capacity on " Elvis " nights with an overspill of about 30 in the bar area - go to Simon's the evening you arrive and reserve a table, even in late January thy are fully booked - it's a sensational night if your a fan of the " King " . A great night out - Simon, Josie & Rede " thank you very much "

“What a great night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

A clue for the person who did not like Elvis being everywhere, look at the name of the bar. What do you expect Rod Stewart.

We went three times in a month, the first time we did not realise you had to book but Simon suggested we wait in case someone did not turn up on time. As it happened a group was late so we got in with to others. The staff could not have been more helpful.

I am not a big Elvis fan, (but my wife is). Having said that I really enjoyed all three nights which were varied. Drinks are a bit higher but that is the price for the entertainment. As is getting there an hour before the show starts. It is a great atmosphere good people, the best night in Malta.

For the ladies my wife assured me the toilets were the cleanest in Malta.

We did got to the Frank Sinatra night which was not so great, but again the atmosphere and staff still made it a good night out.

Well done Simon and staff, and in particular Elvis for making an elderly lady very happy on three nights of her holiday.

“Simon Elvis Bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

Sorry to have read the latest post from 'Lisa' about Simon's bar. Thought it quite harsh. Simon is one of the most genuine and sincere people that I know in Malta. His wife/family/staff are second to none. The bar is well frequented by locals (my husband and I are there regularly) and tourists alike who go back time and time again for the entertainment and hospitality afforded to them. Great to have a bar like this in Qawra. Thanks for keeping a good house Simon.
