Don’t you look forward to after-work drinks with colleagues after you’ve had a long, hard day at the office?
Or Maybe you and your colleagues are looking for a nice place to celebrate your birthday or your achievements but your team struggles to come to a consensus about where to go out to celebrate because of the vast options that are available in Malta.
We at Taaable have researched the best places to go after work so that you can save your time.
So without further ado, here are our top picks for places to go after work for a drink and a nice platter:
1. Trabuxu, Valletta
Trabuxu has been a popular destination for the post-work drinks crowd for a while. Between the objet d’art, the deep red walls, darkly-stained wood – it’s the exact opposite of the fluorescent tubes and the computer screens at work.
The menu is seasonal, the cheese, cured meats, and salami are plentiful, they have their house chicken liver parfait and terrine, and if you like you can even buy cheese of your choice by the gram.
This 400-year-old stone vault cellar is clearly a destination for post-work socialising. This experience helped Trabuxu to grow and produce one of the top platters in Malta.
2. The Black Sheep, Sliema

5. Charles Grech Café, Valletta
This spot is paramount to the office workers in Valletta. Any time after five in the evening, you can spot men and women in business formal attire, maybe slightly dressed down, at the Republic Street Café.
Known for their selection of wines, the Charles Grech Café offers platters for the post-work crowd, knowing that some cold cuts and cheese are the perfect thing to go with a bottle of Gavi.
This has been, after all, the mission of the Charles Grech establishment since its inception in 1881 and it’s needless to say that they offer one of the top platters in Malta.
6. MedAsia Fusion Lounge, Sliema
Sushi, rolls, meat on skewers, satay, Cantonese pork rib and Beijing chicken wings – MedAsia offers the kind of foods that an Asian fusion restaurant would for their platters.
After all, not everyone wants salumi and cheeses for their after-hours drinks.
They offer plenty of other Asian-fusion items on the menu, but this venue on the Sliema Strand is just the thing for wonderful cocktails and platters of Asian food.
7. Electro Lobster Project, St. Julian’s
In the ever-picturesque evenings in the piazza of Balluta, some of the most music-savvy working men and women of the island flock to Electro Lobster Project, affectionately shortened to ELP.
The bar-restaurant-lounge has a lovely outdoor seating area, but also a sound-designed interior that’s perfect for its live music performances.
It’s ample selection of global spirits, beers, and cocktails are the perfect pair for its sea-focused platters, carpaccios, or good old fries.

8. St. Gregory’s Club Lounge, Sliema
This recently done-up venue just a block away from St. Gregory’s church in Sliema has some of the friendliest staff you can imagine.
Its ample space makes it ideal for after work gatherings, and the billiards table doesn’t hurt either.
