What can I do on first night Malta? On New Year's Eve, it's sometimes difficult to decide what to do. We've created a list of our recommendations for making this New Year's in Malta the best imaginable, regardless of whether you're celebrating in a packed club, in the main squares of Malta or Gozo, or at home with friends and champagne.
The new year in Malta's capital is kicked off with a concert at St. George's Square. This event draws thousands of locals as well as visitors. Experience a fireworks display and live music during this countdown to the new year.
Many events will take place at different places. Get together with your friends for a memorable end of year dinner at one of our islands' many restaurants.

Parties and events will be published towards the end of the year.
If instead of going to a new years party, you prefer going to dine at a restaurant, Malta has plenty of restaurants where you can dine. Not all restaurants will be open, but the majority will be. Many restaurants will serve a set menu, buffet, but you will find restaurants which will have à la carte. One thing to make sure is that you book your table as early as possible due to the high demand of Maltese who go out for dinner.
Apart from dining at restaurants, you may want to celebrate right from your hotel. A few hotels open their restaurants for dining and also for celebration. It is best to check with your hotel to avoid disappointment. Luxury hotels also organise a new year's eve ball.
