  • 1. The Thirsty Barber

    An ocean of cool amid the meat markets of St. Julian's, this Prohibition Era–style cocktail bar has live music nights and a rare eye for detail. Drinks are original and inspired by the stars of the Roaring '20s; try a Meyer Lansky (Brugal Anjeo rum, cherry brandy, lime, and cinnamon syrup) and pay the mob their dues.

    Ball St., St. Julian's, N/A Malta, Malta
  • 2. 76 Kapitali

    Malta doesn't have a great history of craft-brewing, but this laid-back café is its heart and soul. With nine brews on tap, including a half-dozen beers from Gozo's Lord Chambray brewery, Naxxar's Phoenix Brewery, and the bar's own IPA, the local choice is excellent. This is bulked out by some fine guest beers, with the likes of Belgium's superb Brussels Beer Project and Zinne Bir having featured in the past. The sandwiches aren't bad, either, if you want a snack.

  • 3. Bridge Bar

    This pocket-size bar is the best of the many lively spots that spill out onto the stepped alleys leading from St. Paul Street down to the wharf. The style here is to grab a cushion and sit outside on warm, summer nights while live jazz floats out of the bar. It's an iconic Valletta night out. It's closed on Sunday.

  • 4. Trabuxu Wine Bar

    Part of the appeal of this chi-chi wine bar is its setting, far from the hubbub of the tourists, tucked away inside a 400-year-old vaulted cellar. The city's best selection of wines awaits, while its sister bistro can be found on South Street. Note that Trabuxu is closed on Sunday and Monday.

    2 Strait St., Valletta, N/A Malta, VLT 1430, Malta
  • 5. The Thirsty Lawyer

    Closed Permanently

    Strait Street was a bawdy escape for visiting servicemen in the 19th- and 20th centuries. Dubbed "the Gut" by the English, it was a place far removed from the morals of Catholic Malta, packed with bordellos, music, and regrets. That all came to an end when its army clientele packed up at the end of World War II, and it's been gentrified in recent years with a slew of high-end cocktail joints that lean on the area's notorious past. The Thirsty Lawyer is the pick of the lot, with live jazz, DJs, a slick art deco vibe, and a fine whiskey menu adding to the flair of its mixologists.
