This is a centre of night life in Paceville / St Julians. There are many bars, some eateries and several "gentlemen's clubs". One of the livelier area of St Julians. At the top is the Arkadia supermarket - effectively a local Waitrose in Malta.

Very busy later at night and the weekend. Lots of steps and lots of bars and clubs. Keep looking down and can be dangerous and dirty. It would help if others would ignore their phones while going up and down but how do you change a culture!.

Unfortunately impossible to avoid as you need to pass through this area to reach restaurants etc in Paceville.

This, for some reason, seems to be a popular place to hang out, but it is just a set of steps with bars and restaurants. There are nicer places round the bay.

In the heart of Paceville - lots of restaurants, pubs and other entertainment. OK for families during the day. Be aware of the many "Gentlemens Clubs" which are open by night. Popular location for the younger set.

Definitely worth a look while in the area or if you are staying at one of the nearby resorts. There are steps with businesses at both sides ranging from restaurants, bars and gentleman's clubs. It can be a bit rowdy and congested, but interesting to see and exciting.

Part of the party district of Paceville. The area is in dire need of renovation or at least a good clean. But for those who are young, drunk etc, in the middle of the night it is the ' happening place '.

If you want clubbing and bars this is the place to go for drinks and loud music and a fun time. Definitely one for the young
