The beautiful Mediterranean climate means it’s always a good time to head to an outdoor café in Valletta’s pedestrianized historic center for drinks and people watching. The Maltese come out to play after dark at countless cocktail bars, rooftop lounges, and thumping nightclubs. If you want to show off your latest moves on the dance floor, then head to the nightlife clubbing action in Paceville, on the coast near St. Julians, known for its abundant clubs and bars.
Concerts and festivals fill the calendar across Malta, from Valletta to Gozo to Comino. A variety of theatres, including two opera houses in Gozo’s Victoria, offer a heady mix of traditional, modern and classical entertainment. Not to mention several open-air venues where visitors can enjoy plays, musicals, operas and concerts under the stars.
For a more traditional take on music in Malta, attend a Band Club in a village. Bands Clubs are a source of pride and show off Maltese social, music, and festival culture. Local festas, where islanders celebrate feast days of their saints, are another way to immerse yourself in traditional Maltese life. Whole communities come together to celebrate, with houses decked with bunting, delicious street food, music and dancing over several days.
