Paceville (St. Julian’s)

Online since: 09. April 2013

Havana in Paceville on Malta

Paceville is a district of St. Julian’s and is the largest entertainment centre on Malta. Old and young come here to party and have fun. Something worth mentioning is the extremely international audience – almost every nation is represented!

The nightclubs and bars are all in close proximity to each other, in the middle of a residential area. Nightclubs stand right next to each other and in between you will find bars and pubs. Many snack stalls (selling pizzas, kebabs and burgers), fast-food chains (Burger King, McDonald’s, Chick PacevilleKing, SFC) and restaurants have also settled here. The restaurants are located somewhat beyond all the hustle and bustle, while the fast-food restaurants have settled right in the middle of it.

With a few exceptions such as the Axis, entrance to most clubs in Malta is free. Rules made to boost the sales of food and beverages, such as a minimum amount you have to spend, don’t exist either. Only on public holidays and at special events do the clubs charge coverage. Most clubs have Paceville Maltaspecialised in a specific style. There are clubs for house music (Empire), hip-hop (Hawanna), techno (Qube), trance (Axis), general music mix (Foot Loose), oldies (Fuego) and many more. Many of the bars and pubs also have different character styles; among others, you will find Scottish, Irish, hip-hop and Maltese establishments.

Paceville booms, especially on weekends. Friday marks the beginning of the weekend and the party reaches its peak on Saturday. During the main season (June – September), the streets are so packed that you need several minutes to move only a few metres though the large masses of people. Likewise, some clubs become so full that you can’t get in. During off-season (winter: October to May), much fewer people go there to party. The bleakest months are January and February; on some days, Paceville looks like a ghost town, obsolete and dismal. Nothing happens during the week – a stark contrast to high season, when people party from Monday to Friday, especially on Wednesday!

Portomaso in St. JuliansWhat else is there in Paceville?

But Paceville has more to offer than just clubs, bars and pubs. The island’s largest cinema is located right next to the international 5-star InterContinental Hotel. Movies are shown on 16 screens in English. Next to it is the bowling centre and further down the road is the Bay Street shopping centre. On its three levels, you can buy almost anything you ever wanted. On the top level, you will find bars, restaurants and an amusement hall. Even further down the road is the small but stunning beach of St. George’s Bay. A particularly younger crowd comes here in summer to party hard, and at night, some even take a dive into the water to cool down.

In the centre of Paceville, several small shops, including souvenir shops, have opened their doors. Many language schools, such as EC, ESE, Berlitz and Elanguest, teach English in this area as well. At the large and luxurious 5-star hotel, The Westin, you’ll find Malta’s largest casino, the Dragonara. Big money can be made there!

Malta’s only skyscraper, the Portomaso Tower, is to be found in Paceville (St. Julian’s), and accommodates the offices of mainly international companies, such as Microsoft, IBM and Intel. Right next to the tower is the famous Hilton Hotel. Some years ago, the Portomaso Complex was also built close by, and is currently the most luxurious complex in Malta. Rumour has it that stars such as Michael Schumacher and David Beckham have apartments here! You will also find top restaurants in the complex, such as the Japanese Zen Restaurant (delicious sushi) or the Blue Elephant (unique ambience). The large yacht harbour is also located here.

Spinola Bay in St. Julians on MaltaSpinola Bay (St. Julian’s)

Approaching St. Julian’s, you will find comfortable bars and restaurants with international cuisine; in just one night, your taste buds can travel around the world. Most places offer a magnificent view of Spinola Bay, where the traditional, brightly-coloured Luzzu boats, sporting an eye on the hull, anchor. The very friendly atmosphere, which quickly rubs off on the tourists thanks to the Maltese insouciance rounds off the perfect evening.

We wish you a pleasant night!
