My wife and me went to this cocktailbar three times on our 1-week visit to Malta. Every single cocktail we had was really good! You can just tell them what kind of flavour you like and they will make something new and creative for you...More

Amazing selection of gins, rums, whiskys and vodkas. My favourite cocktail bar in Malta bar none. Highly recommend to anyone wanted an amazing night and service. One of the best nights I've had out in Malta.

Went to this bar for a drink before dinner and I definitely recommended it. The entrance is the most original I have ever seen. Patrons enter through a traditional British red telephone box. This gives the impression one is entering an illicit place, which is...More
