Staying in an apartment just a few doors from this bar we thought we'd pop in and catch the Blues Brothers tribute act which is on each Friday night.

This pub saved our time on Qawra. After suffering the misery of our nearby hotel, this place was brilliant. Great entertainment, especially their Blues Brothers act. Really friendly and welcoming staff and all at very reasonable prices. A must visit if you are in the area.

Thank god for this pub, after suffering all inclusive entertainment for nearly 2 weeks I was so relieved to find this pub!! Elivs tribute was fantastic, not only sang Elvis songs but interacted with customers and had banter - very funny and entertaining. The pub owner also came round with snacks which was welcomed.
