Things to do
Comedy, jazz or bowling? 7 quirky things to do on the Maltese Islands this month
Give Netflix a break!

Nicole Parnis

Fed up with dinner and drinks? Suffering from a Netflix burnout? Well we've got something for you! March is a notoriously 'beige' month: not quite winter, and definitely not summer... but you'd be wrong to think there's nothing fun going on! We've rounded up some of the best evening things to do in Malta this month for you to try out. 

Stand-up comedy

Stand Up

Casey's Irish Bar / Facebook

Up for a giggle? Luckily for you, Casey's Irish Bar in Gzira has you sorted. This quirky little pub, decorated with a wall of old vinyl records and comfy sofas, is a favourite amongst young expats. Casey's regularly hosts open mic nights, quizzes and stand-up comedy, and their next one is on tomorrow night! See ya there!

Jazz night

Feeling too old for Paceville? Well, Valletta is your best bet. As well as countless restaurants, the capital boasts a number of funky bars, some of them hosting quality live acts! Head down to Cafe Society on a Wednesday, down the steps of St John's Street, (just off St Paul's Street), for jazz nights with a view of the stunning Grand Harbour. 

Disco bowling

When was the last time you rounded up your pals to go bowling? And when was the last time you went bowling decked out in 1970s gear? We don’t know about you, but this sounds to us like the perfect friends date! Grab your gang and head down to the bowling alley on a Friday night for an evening full of laughs and plenty of vintage-style photo ops! Go on, do it for the ‘gram.

Quiz night 

Quiz Night

M&L Quiz Nights

Fancy yourself a bit of a brain-box? A quiz night with friends can be so much fun! Pick a hilarious team name and get cracking solving all the quiz master's mind boggling questions. M&L Quiz Nights host regular events around the island, including some at St Julians' Henry J. Beans, a beloved American diner that's the perfect place to share some loaded potato skins and buffalo wings while you're at it. Their upcoming quiz night is on the 28th of March in aid of Inspire charity, with a chance to win vouchers from the Corinthia Group!

Art exhibition

Valletta Contemporary / Facebook

Craving a great exhibition? Malta's art scene has definitely picked up the pace in the past few years, and Valletta is its hub. Mix up your weekly plans and head down to Nadine Baldow's exhibition, Pristine Paradise, at Valletta Contemporary, which will run until 5th April. Follow up the exhibition with a cold Cisk at Gugar as you muse about the exhibition with like-minded culture vultures.

Cinema night 

Cinema

Emma's Kitchen / Facebook

Cinema nights are catching on big-time! City Lights in Valletta's St John's Street used to be the island's only adult cinema showing blue-movies in the '80s. But, nowadays it has undergone a new lease of life, hosting classic movies in its front room bar, and a theatre space upstairs. Other establishments are following suit, and Emma's Kitchen in San Gwann - a favourite amongst hipster foodies - have also started to  screen some cinematic gems! Grab yourself some gourmet popcorn and settle in for a cinema night with a difference! 

Cooking classes
