Bridge Bar Valletta - a must visit gem!

Have any of you seen this mesmerising image from #Valletta before?

Bridge Bar Valletta Malta and English Phone Box

Well if you have, what you may not know is, tucked at the bottom of these age old steps, behind the red door is an amazing bar, the fabulous Bridge Bar Valletta!

Steps which could tell a tale or two!

Each step here carries an echo, a whisper, of centuries old history, worn smooth by the footsteps of knights, royalty, great artists and painters, actors and actresses, sailors, soldiers and airmen, generations of Maltese families and oodles of tourists.

Set just behind the stunning architecture of the Victoria Gate, by day, this location is one of the most photographed in Malta's beautiful capital city of Valletta.

By night, it turns into a magical, candlelight lit, ethereal, hangout. (Although I do feel hideaway or hideout is a far better fitting description.)

The smooth steps, turn into an awesome lounge, complete with soft cushions and flickering tealights.

Fabulous wines and mouth watering platters

The bar is named after the bridge which it sits alongside.

On an evening the bridges walkway is flanked with candlelight lit tables, where you can relax and enjoy one of George the owners delectable platters washed down by a delicious international wine. (You won't find any local Maltese wine on the menu here, George has a spectacular international wine list featuring some real finds)


Friday evenings are even more wondrous, as your already incredible Bridge experience will be bolstered by an intoxicating haunting playlist of live jazz.

The acoustics here are phenomenal.

I could go on my lovelies, however words simply do not give The Bridge Bar the true justice it deserves.

You really must go and experience it for yourself.

Enjoy and savour!

This is a place where you need to linger, to chill, to drink in the atmosphere of this wondrously romantic setting.

I promise you'll be captivated and delighted, The Bridge Bar has an ambience unmatched anywhere else in the city.

For me, it will eternally hold a magnetism, there truly is nowhere in Valletta as sublimely enchanting as The Bridge.
