Valletta is a hive of activity in the day, but at night the city relaxes. However, a buzzing new scene has just opened on the Valletta Waterfront by the cruise passenger terminal just below the city walls. Here warehouses and facades have been artfully renovated and are now home to fashionable bars, restaurants, clubs and shops. Large outdoor seating areas face onto the harbour. Valletta is dotted with small restaurants, cafes and interesting bars. All have their own unique character.
