Drinking and nightlife in Gozo

  • Top ChoiceNightlife in Nadur

    Gebuba

    With more than 300 brews from around Malta and the world, the team at Gebuba are big beer fans. Seating is either on Nadur's pretty main square or amid Gebuba's cosy interior, and friendly owner Giovanni can also recommend local Gozitan wines and liqueurs. He's all over what's happening in Malta's nascent craft-beer scene, so ask him what's new.

  • Top ChoiceNightlife in Mġarr

    Gleneagles Bar

    This is the social hub of the village and a glorious place to head for a sundowner, with views over the harbour. It fills up in the early evening with a lively mix of locals, fishermen, yachties and tourists. It's named after the first ferry-service ship (1885). Suitably arcane maritime memorabilia fills the walls.

  • Nightlife in Victoria (Rabat)

    Tapies Bar

    Tapies is an old-fashioned bar with outside tables. It's busy from morning to night, with a sociable mix of Gozitans, expats and tourists, enjoying the insomniac-friendly opening hours, laid-back always-the-same atmosphere and cheap beer. Note: the atmosphere is pretty male-dominated.

  • Nightlife in Xagħra

    73 in the Square

    Adding a touch of after-dark energy to Xagħra's pretty main square, this modern wine bar does good-value platters and also draws locals from around Gozo to regular live-music events on weekends. Check the Facebook page for what's scheduled.

  • Nightlife in Marsalforn

    Piutrentanove

    This small lounge bar on the waterfront has a sleek interior and a couple of outside tables, and is a lively place to be in the summer months. It also serves decent pizzas.

  • Nightlife in Xlendi

    La Grotta

    On the road to Victoria about 600m east of Xlendi, La Grotta has a unique setting with amazing views. It's housed in a limestone cave in the cliffs above the valley, with two large dance areas (indoors and out), and hosts big-party nights, DJs and live music.

  • Nightlife in Victoria (Rabat)

    Ku Club

    Gozo's biggest club hauls in lots of international names in the winter months, and is the place to go to worship before godlike DJs, with hands-in-the-air trance and house. It's tucked away under Il-Kastell.
