1. Gleneagles, Mgarr

Probably one of the best-known bars on the three islands, the maritime-themed Gleneagles Pub in Mgarr is so close to the ferry terminal that you can make this your stop as soon as you get to Gozo – and just before you leave. This place is a landmark for many locals, and its iconic status has guaranteed a loyal clientele through the years. The drinks are cheap and there are fish on the walls. What more could you want?

2. Xerri il-Bukkett, Qala

Another favourite, Xerri il-Bukkett, in the village of Qala on the eastern tip of the island, is not only well-known for its drinks but also for its pizza and views – overlooking the Gozo channel, with a glimpse of Comino’s Blue Lagoon. But, there’s much more to enjoy, with ready and keen service, a warm atmosphere and reasonable prices.

3. Unwine’d, Marsalforn

A bit more of a modern place – with much effort put into the place recently – Unwine’d in Marsalforn is a busy bar in a busy area. There are a wide range of cocktails available, which makes this a great place to be for a night out with friends! And, the outdoor area means summer is the season to get down there!

4. Gebuba Bar, Nadur

The word gebuba refers to a small dwelling in Maltese, but the term is often used to denote a place which is tiny! And, as can be expected, Gebuba Bar is not large, but that’s part of its charm. Located in the village square of Nadur, this is a popular haunt for locals, thanks to its chilled-out vibe, friendly staff and selection of beers – more than enough reason to stay for another one.  

5. Zeppi’s Pub, Qala

No food is served here so you better make sure to come full, ready for a couple of drinks, and a bit of a raucous night! Bands frequently make an appearance, playing live to a heaving audience. Not one for a quiet night out, but a definite choice if you want to let your hair down.
