A list of our 9 favourite party night spots!

Whilst Malta is famous for its ancient history first and foremost, in the background we’re fast becoming known as a great place to party! With some fantastic festivals taking over the summer months and more than enough drinking spots, there’s always somewhere to go if you’re looking for good company and good music. Valletta, the capital city is the hub of bars and restaurants and a great place to start or to stay in, in order to travel slightly out of the city to Paceville and Rabat for some all-night clubs and get home easily again by cab, ferry or foot.
